    Most helpful book on batteriesI had consulted many other sources of data for accurate information on batteries and none were even close to this book. It is laid out in a manner that is easy to understand and the data is very precise and scientific. A must have for anyone who works with or uses batteries which in this day and age is just about everyone.

    A very good non-technical look at batteriesOverall, I found this book to be very informative. Since I deal with communications and the varied batteries involved with them, it is nice to have a book in layman’s language to help educate others as well as to learn for myself. Since battery technology is evolving so fast I know this book may be dated in the not too distant future, but it is worth having. I did think, however, how it was laid out was a bit odd at times with a few topics seeming to disappear then reappear later on in the book or being repeated.

    Want to *really* max out the life of your mobile device batteries? This is a must read.I bought this book when I realized I needed a 1-stop shop whenever I wanted to figure out how to get the most out of my rechargable batteries. Internet searches always gave me conflicting results and mixed advice. I call tech support for a battery company and I still get mixed advice.The book does get a little technical, but if you’re science minded and like graphs– all the more reason to buy the book. It’s well organized, and the table of contents helps you go to the chapters that’ll answer your questions quickly.

    The Battery Book: The Ultimate Battery ReferenceThis book provides me with all that I would ever want to know about batteries and their care and maintenance. All that I need to do now is to find the page(s), out of the 360 pages that have been provided to me, that answer my particular inquiry about my present situation. It is a well written book with charts and illustrations that enhance the text.

    Mandatory for anybody who uses batteries excessivelyVery good book… should be mandatory reading for people who use batteries extensively… one complaint is how they compare batteries to gas engines, very inaccurate… if they compared electric motors to gas engines I would give it 5 stars

    going forward it will be and has been very useful to meAs someone who dabbles in batteries and looking to incorporate different types ( Ni Cad, AGM, Lead Acid etc) into my energy centered venture this publication while I do not want to go so far as to say invaluable, going forward it will be and has been very useful to me. Another feature that is very relavant is that it is up to date and current in an industry that is exploding with change and new technologies.F.GSan Diego

    This is one of the must have for a battery user or designerThis book puts into layman’s terms the chemistries of batteries and how they operate in different applications. I would recommend it for the cost.

    Not really a 2016 version.Book has lot of information about batteries and would have been very good 5 to 10 years ago, but it is not really updated. With this I mean that there may be some chapters that covers today, but most chapters are build around batteries from some years ago and not adjusted for current battery performance.
