Could you take a moment out of your busy life to imagine what would it be like to live without batteries?

No more watches, no more cameras; we wouldn’t be able to jump in our cars to go to the shops, nor would we be able to use our mobile phones.
So, since when have these handy little things been around?
In 1799 there was an Italian scientist named Alesandro Volta who invented the first true battery, which was known as the Voltaic Pile.
However, the disadvantages of the earlier battery types were that they were very bulky and heavy. Moreover, these batteries generated an excessive amount of heat and they could only be used once, and then they had to be recharged.
Luckily for us, modern batteries have come a long way. They are lightweight and compact, fast charging, and they no longer have to be recharged after every use.
The most important modern application must be batteries that are used in cars, boats, trains and airplanes. Without this invention, we would no longer be able to commute, and our lives would literally come to a halt.
If your life suddenly comes to a standstill because your car’s battery decides to give in, it’s time to consider Battery Centre in Windhoek.
Battery Centre was established with Super Tyres in 2002, selling the premium RAYLITE battery brand.
They offer a range of services, including free battery testing as well as a free vehicle charging testing system while you wait.
