Electrol was organized in 1917 by Horace M Williams who became president, after moving here from New Jersy.


Electricl World April 15, 1922

Electrol was invented in Providence in 1918 by Edward Hacking from Central Falls. We have seen Edward Hacking before. He and his brother Edwin also started the Sahara Battery company in Providence. In 1918, Edward invented a new battery electrolyte used in batteries called Electrol. This substance was poured into the battery as a liquid and then sets to various degrees of hardness.
