Alessandro Volta Creates First Electric Battery In Alessandro Volta hypothesized that an electric charge could be created by taking advantage of the different properties of metals. Though there are some records of batteries tracing back to the B.C. era, Volta was able to resuscitate the concept.

Volta ’s work began with the work of a friend (though they debated often), the Italian. (Alessandro Volta and the Electric Battery, Bern Dibner.) But Alessandro Volta was so much more important than just that.
