Chemistry. The lead acid battery uses lead as the anode and lead dioxide as the cathode, with an acid electrolyte. During the charging process, the reactions at each electrode are reversed; the anode becomes the cathode and the cathode becomes the anode.
Hereof, how does a lead acid battery produce electricity?
During the battery recharge cycle lead sulfate (sulfation) begins to reconvert to lead and sulfuric acid. During the recharging process as electricity flows through the water portion of the electrolyte and water, (H2O) is converted into its original elements, hydrogen and oxygen.
