Quote from: John Zybourne on March 07, 2022, 10:49:02 AMThis is a bit of a tangent, but if I recall correctly nickel-iron batteries were originally developed for electric cars in the late 19th century. Much more durable than lead acid in that they essentially have unlimited discharge cycles. Unfortunately, they faded out because unlike lead-acid they don't work as well as a starter battery for petrol cars. Also, I love that in the 19th century, rechargeable batteries were called 'electrical accumulators'.
