Lead-acid batteries


I'm looking for a lead-acid batteries for obtaning sulfuric acid and lead dioxide anodes for chlorate synthesis and sulfuric acid synthesis from a CuSO4 solution, but I am not sure where should I start...I mean, are thoose batteries all the same? I've checked some, and they claim to contain calcium-lead-silver or something...I don't really think that it would be enough for my proporses, right? So how should I start? What am I exatcly looking for? Should I care about miliampers per hour? I'm lost.

To start, you really should read up on the subject!
There is a wealth of information on electrolysis on this site (use search) and elsewhere on the 'net . . .

I know a little bit of electrolysis. Looks that I would need a platinum electrode, which is not affordable or an oxide based electrode. That is the reason that I'm looking for the lead dioxide...But I would like to know if all lead-acid batteries have PbO2 on them.

If it doesn't have PbO2 in it then the chances are it isn't a lead-acid battery...

Look in metal garbage place, you can buy it from workers there.

Great then. I'll get one for me. Should I care about brands and mAh?

Will the lead dioxide anode be useful for the electrolysis of the copper sulphate II and brine?

As a general rule, if you want to perform electrolytic reactions, you should first know some of the theory involved . . .
Garnering knowledge by asking beginner questions is a very poor substitute for reading the relevant texts!

I think that I already know a little bit of electrolysis. I would love to know more about it. I have already tried to regard some answers to my questions, but I've failed. So I stopped looking for answers since I'm not going to get em' anyway. If you want to help me with that, I would appreciate.

Hissingnoise helps those who first at least try to help themselves. Oddly, I agree.
