How batteries work explained- A great video explaining the history of the battery by Adam Jacobson

How batteries work explained

When I started at secondary school, I soon found out that I was a “visual” scholar. Hence it did not matter how much I read about a subject; then I could not take it in. For that reason, I soon found out that I could learn things better by using images. In other words, I could pick things up by using drawings and pictures. So I soon found out that I was fairly good at art.

This leads me onto today. In my opinion, today’s world is extremely visual and suits my style. When I am not sure, I can look at a video and the penny usually drops. I was elated when I first saw this particular video. About how the battery was discovered.I knew that it would be a great visual aid for my readers.

Adam Jacobson gives the basics on batteries.
