6. What kind of battery is used in most electric vehicles?

Lead-acid batteries power the country's electric fork and scissor lift trucks, golf cars, mining vehicles, street sweepers, mail delivery vehicles and indoor and outdoor passenger shuttles.

7. Where do you find the most lead-acid batteries?

On land, batteries start and power vehicles; back up uninterruptible operations like hospitals, air traffic controls, railroad signals and weapons systems; and help electric utilities shift loads among grids. Batteries are on the water, too, powering navigational signals, backing up critical systems in submarines, starting engines and powering electrical devices in boats.
