  1. 1. Thomas Davenport’s Electric Car
  2. 2. Inventor’s Biography <ul><li>Thomas was born July 9, 1802 to a poor family in Williamstown, Vermont. He received 3 years of apprentice to a blacksmith when he was 14 years old. In 1831 Davenport went to Penfield Iron Works. He was amazed at the electromagnet that was created by Joseph Henry and was intrigued by this. That is when Davenport wanted to experiment with something alike on his own. In July 6, 1851 Davenport sadly died three days before his birthday. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Electric Car <ul><li>Thomas Davenport invented the electric car in 1835. Thanks to this invention with electricity, it has helped improve the way of transportation by making it easier to transfer items and people themselves. The cost of batteries were to big and the transportation use of the motor was not yet practical. Even though his invention was only useful for a little while it helped improve our way of transportation in a major way. Years later, the electric car was improved by other inventors. Davenport’s electric car never caught on only because his batteries were not rechargeable . </li></ul>
