Emergency Lighting Batteries Top Facts
What are emergency lighting batteries? Emergency lighting batteries are the kinds of rechargeable batteries used for emergency lights. There are two kinds of emergency lighting battery: the sealed lead-acid battery, and the nickel-cadmium battery. The sealed lead-acid battery contains lead alloy plates that are immersed in acid. When the acid breaks down the plates it produces electricity. The nickel-cadmium battery is a dry rechargeable battery with two metals separated by a non-conductive layer that causes the metals to react with each other magnetically and leads to the production of charged electrons forming electricity.
