Dry Cell Battery Characteristics

Dry cell batteries have a metal electrode or graphite rod covered by an electrolyte paste, all within in a metal container. In an acidic dry cell, the electricity-generating reduction reaction typically takes place in a paste comprised of ammonium chloride and manganese dioxide. In a longer-lasting alkaline dry cell, potassium hydroxide or sodium hydroxide are used in lieu of ammonium chloride. Other batteries might use silver oxide, mercuric oxide or nickel/cadmium. Dry cells can be either primary or secondary cells.

Dry Cell vs. Wet Cell

Wet cell batteries must generally be kept upright to prevent leaking. Dry cells on the other hand can be operated in any position, which makes them to better option for applications such as remote controls, flashlights and other handheld devices. Dry cells are typically used as primary cells, and these batteries can handle long periods of storage because they lose their charge more slowly than secondary batteries. Lithium-ion batteries represent a type of dry cell battery well-suited for use in cell phones, due to its high energy density, or its power stored versus weight. This means a small compact, durable battery can deliver a large amount of power.

Wet cell batteries are typically used as rechargeable secondary batteries. This makes them ideal for use in motor vehicles, where the car’s alternator recharges the battery after starting. For the amount of power that they supply, and their durability, wet cell batteries are fairly affordable. If properly maintained, wet cell batteries also have a high number of charge-discharge cycles. They are also less likely than other batteries to suffer damage from overcharging.

Working closely with our supply partners and organizations including the Electrochemical Society and NAATBatt International, we help lithium-ion battery manufacturers worldwide commercialize ambitious new technologies for the energy storage market.
