Batteries and accumulators

The Electric Storage Battery Company, which would one day become Exide Technologies, was founded in the USA in 1888 by W.W. Gibbs, an executive at a gas company, who had seen the potential of electricity as a source of lighting. He purchased the patents of Clement Payen, a French inventor who advanced electrical storage, and began transforming those ideas into reliable commercial products.[1]
