      Dell, formerly with the British Atomic Energy Research Establishment, and
      Rand, with the CSIRO in Australia, commemorate the bicentenary of Alassandro
      Volta's invention of the first battery. They write primarily for engineers
      and technicians who are responsible for specifying, procuring, or
      maintaining batteries, but keep the electrochemistry as simple as possible
      for the benefit of non- chemists.

      Batteries are becoming increasingly important in today's world of portable
      electronic devices, along with the need to store electricity derived from
      solar and other renewable forms of energy, and the desire to introduce
      electric and hybrid electric vehicles to reduce emissions.

      Understanding Batteries is a must for all those seeking a straightforward
      explanation of how batteries are constructed, their operation, and the
      factors determining their performance and life. Beginning with a brief
      history of the development of batteries and a discussion of their
      applications and markets, the book goes on to outline the basic terminology
      and science of batteries. The different types of primary (non-rechargeable)
      and secondary (rechargeable) batteries are then described and emphasis is
      given to the importance of matching the battery to the intended application.
      Examples are given to demonstrate how to define and prioritise the various
      criteria which comprise the battery specification.

      Throughout, the chemistry is kept as simple as possible. Understanding
      Batteries will appeal to a wide range of readers, including electrical
      equipment manufacturers and users, engineers and technicians, chemistry and
      materials science students, teachers and the interested battery user.
