What is a zinc-carbon battery?
- Dec 17, 2018 -

Carbon-zinc battery, also known as carbon-zinc dry battery, carbon battery, carbon battery, the outer shell is made of zinc. It can be used as a container for batteries or as a negative electrode for batteries. Carbon zinc batteries are developed from liquid Leclanché batteries. A "super" battery or a "high energy" battery refers to a zinc chloride battery, which is an improved version of a cheap battery that is generally used. The positive electrode of the battery is mainly composed of powdered manganese dioxide and carbon. The electrolyte is a paste solution formed by dissolving zinc chloride and ammonium chloride in water. Carbon-zinc batteries are the cheapest primary batteries, so they are the first choice for many manufacturers, because the batteries sold by these manufacturers often need to be distributed. Zinc-carbon batteries can be used in low-power devices such as remote controls, flashlights, toys or transistor radios.
