How Does a Battery Generate Its Power?

Car batteries are storage units that create and maintain a certain level of voltage that is deliverable on demand. Car batteries consist of positive and negative poles usually consisting of lead alloys, two major poles, and a plastic container impervious to acidic decay. The unit is filled with a combination of water and sulfuric acid.

When the proper amount of water is poured into a powdered form of sulfur, the sulfur reacts with the water and other ingredients to create sulfuric acid. The acid serves as a conductor of magnetic properties between a series of positive and negative lead poles. The reaction between the poles creates a voltage level determined by the number of poles used. The battery cannot create more voltage without the introduction of more poles.

If you have any concerns at all about your battery, bring it to our service center at Hawk Ford of Oak Lawn in Oak Lawn, IL for a quick check.
