Title: Storage battery and method of manufacturing

Abstract

This patent describes a storage battery. It comprises a battery case having a top, a bottom, a pair of side walls, and a pair of end walls; parallel partitions within the battery case extending from one side wall to the opposite wall to divide the battery case into a plurality of fluid tight cells; spaced, parallel rest ups extending upward from the bottom of the battery case and perpendicular to the partitions to form receptacles between the rest ups and the side walls; stacks of positive and negative battery plates, one stack being located in each cell and having a lower edge resting on the rest ups within the cell; clips, wherein one clip is attached to each end of the lower edge of each stack, each clip is located in a receptacle, and one of the clips on each stack is in electrical contact with the positive plates in the stack and the other clip on each stack is in electrical contact with the negative plates in the stack; electrically conductive contacts, each contact extending through a partition at alternate ends of the partitions to provide electrical paths between clips in adjacent pairs of receptacles; a pair of terminalsmore » extending through the battery case; a pair of electrically conductive straps, each strap extending between one of the terminals and one of the clips attached to the stack in one of the cells; and an electrolytic solution within the battery case in contact with the battery plates.« less
