Know the history of batteries.
Know some fun facts about energy storage.
Learn details about lithium ion batteries.
Learn the basics of how batteries work.

Batteries Batteries Batteries


No prior knowledge needed, just curiosity for how batteries work.
Take a look at some batteries that are around your house. Do you know how they work?


Have you ever wondered why batteries explode? How why we don’t have more electric vehicles? Or just wanted to know how batteries produce electricity? This class will teach you fun and useful facts about batteries that you can use to impress friends and family. If you want to know more, it will also give you a simple but comprehensive overview of how batteries work.
At the end of this class you will be able to:
Understand the basic principles of how batteries work.Be able to understand important concepts in batteries such as current, voltage, and energy density.Describe different types of batteries and their applications.Understand what lithium batteries are and how they differ between them.Know some fun facts and resources to expand your knowledge on batteries.
The class is composed mostly of lectures and videos where I explain interesting facts about battery technologies. The course is designed so that with each section you go deeper and deeper into knowledge. If you are new to the battery world you will start from the very basics. If you have some advanced knowledge of chemistry you can skip some of the initial lectures and go into more advanced sections.
Join the class and improve your knowledge on the technology that powers our world. No previous knowledge required!
