Abstract:

The article is a survey of an experiment in which batteries filled with electrolyte were allowed to stand under various conditions of time and temperature, with the goal of understanding the process of self-discharge of batteries. There is particular focus made on the negative zinc electrode of the battery and the chemical and physical changes it undergoes throughout the experiment. Ultimately, the experiment lays the foundation for understanding the total process of battery self-discharge to such an extent that the performance and life of batteries can be improved.
