In this TED Ed by Adam Jacobson, we travel back to the late 1700s where a professional disagreement between Luigi Galvani and Alessandro Volta eventually led Volta to invent an early version of an electric battery.

Of course, today you might know Volta’s name from the words volt and voltage. Galvani is also honored for his contributions.
