Batteries And Automobile Industry


A battery can be defined as a box or container that consists of a surrounding protection in which one or more cells are present. The structure is favorable for electrochemical reactions. The function and purpose of a battery is to convert chemical energy into electrical energy through a chemical reaction and to use electrical energy as an electrical energy source.

The function of a battery is to generate electrons that are generated as a result of a chemical reaction. The electrical energy generated and conserved by the batteries is used as a power source for many of our everyday appliances. Batteries play an important role in power management products. A battery contains a positive pole and a negative pole indicating the proper connection of a battery to the source device or system.


Depending on size and functionality, there are different battery types:

Primary batteries are the disposable batteries. Which means that the batteries of such kind cannot be reused. The chemical reactions in such batteries are not reversible and that is why once after being used, such batteries are disposed of. Secondary batteries are batteries that can be used once after all the electrical energy has been consumed. These batteries are rechargeable so that the secondary reactions in the secondary battery are reversible. When these batteries are dead, they are connected to an external power source, which charges the cells and prepares them to re-run the chemical reaction. Some batteries are generally bigger in size and usually last longer and are normally rechargeable but the mechanism of the chemical reaction is different. The electrochemical reaction which take place dry and reversible. Such batteries are called dry cell batteries.

When it comes to automobile industry, batteries play an important role in the functionality of vehicles. Batteries play the role of a power source in almost every kind of automobile. Some automobiles and vehicles are entirely battery operated. Some bikes and scooters are only operated by the batteries and cannot even function without them.

In terms of motorcycles, the battery’s basically play the role of ignition to the engine while the rest of the electric power is used by the accessories provided with the motorcycle like headlight, turning indicators and backlights. Some motorcycles entirely are entirely motorcycle battery operated and do not even need fuel to function. A battery is connected to the terminals of the motorbike and when the key switch is tuned on and the starter button is presses, current flows from the battery to the required components

R&J Batteries is one of the fastest growing battery company in Australia which was established in 1996. The company has a strong good will with over 20 company-owned stores which provide a complete battery range of Automotive, commercial, motorcycle, marine, deep cycle, solar and industrial batteries.
