My name is Victor Mao aka “Mr Mole” and I studied chemistry at Berkeley College of Chemistry.

I have been obsessed with battery technology since I was 10 years old when I made my first DIY battery with my father. This gave me my love for chemistry.

Initially, I was going to publish my papers on Batterymole but decided they would be too advanced for 98% of people wanting to learn about batteries.  I then decided to build a site to educate people about battery technology and basic chemistry.

Beginners Guide to Battery Technology

Guide to Smartphone Battery Technology

If you would like me to cover any battery-related topics, please get in touch via my contact page.  I am also looking to collaborate with any Youtube creators who have science-related channels.

If you are interested in learning about battery technology from research papers, here are a few I would recommend starting with:
