This is an excellent book. It deals with Lead Acid, Nickel Cadmium, Nickel-Metal Hydride and Lithium batteries (Li-ion and Li-poly). There is enough on the chemistry to provide background but the main text deals with the performance of batteries at their terminals. That is where most of us deal with them. The subtitle of the book is "a handbook on rechargeable batteries for non-engineers". The contents live up to this subtitle. There is little or no maths. The explanation is in written form with graphs and tables to provide key information.

The book is authored by Isidor Buchmann of Cadex Electronics with many associate authors. A lot of the illustrations are of Cadex chargers and test equipment. Some academics might object but I found that reassuring. At least the authors know enough to stay in business.

If you want to view the content it is available on the Cadex Electronics web-site. The book is also offered at a reduced price via Amazon Canada. The delivery quoted is 4 to 6 weeks but my copy came in 10 days. My copy paid for itself several times over by allowing me to extend the life of two packs of power tools batteries.

'Gotta' have it if you want to understand the world of batteries...even though things are moving ahead at a very rapid rate.

As a person trying to start a small battery based business I found the information in the book quite helpful.It was a little advanced in some respects for some one of my knowledge level but I learned a lot in reading it. The author was clearly trying to promote Cadex products not a bad thing,but somewhat slanted in his employers direction.

A well written book. This can be a rather dry subject but the author gives just the right amount of information to keep the readers interest. I have become the "battery expert" at work and in the local amateur radio community.

Excellent book for referencing the different batteries used for portable devices, well put in laymens terms. Almost every line is pertinent to the description and explanation of the differnet batteries available in the market today. Its one you can read over and over again, and pick up something new you might have missed on the last reading. Highly recommended if you sell equipment that uses any of the most popular rechargeable batteries in the market today. You will do your customer a great service to know the value of each battery, when to use, and how to maintenance each one.
