Provided herein is a lead-acid battery for which the risk of breakage of a current collecting lug part of a plate while in use is eliminated by simple means. At least a positive plate group of the lead-acid battery includes: one or more plates each including a current collector having a current collecting portion formed by expanding or punching a lead alloy sheet manufactured by cold rolling, and one or more current collecting lug parts unitarily formed with the current collecting portion; and a strap formed by a cast-on strap casting method and coupled to the one or more current collecting lug parts. The current collecting lug part is formed with an elongated protrusion extending in a direction away from the current collecting portion. The elongated protrusion continuously extends in a direction toward the current collecting portion of the plate from inside the strap.

A thin film is used in a metallic collector in order to increase the volume energy density. However, the strength of the thin film is low, so when a negative plate or a positive plate is directly joined to a terminal base portion, even an insignificant load might cause damage, such as cutting of the metallic collector. Even in a structure where the metallic collector is joined to a highly-conductive plate-like metal or a highly-conductive plate-like resin, and where the collecting plate is joined to a terminal base portion, the connection between the collecting plate and the terminal base portion affects the battery properties. The present invention provides a rechargeable battery including an electrode group in which a metallic collector having a negative active material layer formed on a surface, a separator retaining an electrolyte, and another metallic collector having a positive active material layer formed on a surface are alternately disposed in a layered manner into a strip shape such that the separator is interposed between the two kinds of metallic collectors, and electrode plate tabs formed at ends of the two kinds of metallic collectors are joined to each of metallic collecting plates by a predetermined number, and the metallic collecting plates are joined together with pressing plates, by fitting between a bolt and a nuts, to a terminal base portion having a through-hole for the bolt.
