In order to meet the demands of modern lead acid battery applications, the technology must provide higher levels of charge acceptance to boost system efficiency and delay common failure mechanisms such as sulfation or dendritic growth. For example, in the modern automobile, advanced systems such as navigation, heating, and air conditioning can increase electrical energy consumption beyond that which the alternator can replenish during normal vehicle operation. The battery system therefor operates at a detrimental energy deficit. In order to maintain batteries at higher states of charge and avoid irreversible sulfation, modern applications demand increased charge acceptance. As a second example, batteries operating in hybrid-electric automobiles as well as some grid storage applications must be able to effectively accept charge in quick, high-current bursts or risk negative...
