He began investigating storage batteries as early as the 1880s, but it was the advent of automobiles in the late 1890s that spurred him to develop a storage battery to power them. Electrical power would, Edison felt, be a much better solution than gasoline. He stated, "Electricity is the thing. There are no whirring and grinding gears with their numerous levers to confuse.
