Developments in the Design and Performance of Automotive Starter Batteries 1975-1985 830916

The Automotive Starter Battery is undergoing a metamorphosis in response to the needs for reduced component weight and lower-in-service maintenance. Revision of rating standards and developments in machine technology has allowed battery design engineers to stretch the capabilities of the lead-acid system. This paper traces the development of automotive starter batteries through the seventies, describes the major recent innovations and indicates additional design changes which should allow this system to meet the challenges of the mid to late eighties.
