Review of first edition:
"Elektor Electronics: 'Until Battery Reference Book became available... I and many of my colleagues had nothing to refer to but the manufacturers' data sheets."

Review of the second edition:
"Elektor Electronics: 'Battery Reference Book should prove a godsend for designers of all types of battery-operated equipment, battery manufacturers, and electrical and electronic engineers and technicians who use batteries in their work. It should also prove useful to research organizations."

"Battery Reference Book... is probably the most comprehensive battery reference book you'll find... This is a one-of-a-kind book... Clearly written with a slightly English tone, batteryists everywhere should include it in the technical library. Highly recommended." --Jim Hansen
