History
Two physicists, Luigi Galvani (1737-1798) and Alessandro Cont di Volta (1745-1827) were the first scientists to study electricity. Because these two scientists were pioneers words like ‘galvanic element’ and ‘volt’ were named after them.
 
They first observed the effects of electricity on living creatures by using just a simple machine producing static electricity.  In 1780, Cont di Volta manufactured the first simple battery. The construction was very simple and consisted of zinc and copper discs placed on top of each other separated by cloth or cardboards soaked in brine (electrolyte).
 
The Voltaic Pile produced electricity when the discs were connected with a wire.

Over the years and with the technological evolution this Voltaic Pile evolved as the man's need for energy was constantly growing.
