Abstract

In this article I follow the voltaic battery as it was appropriated by the network of people centred on Thomas Beddoes and the Pneumatic Institution in Bristol. I use the case to explore the vicissitudes of a quite special ‘hybrid object’: I consider what we can learn from the trajectories that objects such as the battery describe when they travel across expert communities.
