Example text

However, it is interesting to note that these batteries could still be profitably used in the above devices if coupled to other power sources as supercapacitors (see page 221). Indeed, the latter could take care of current pulses, thus prolonging the life of the alkaline battery. In 1999, premium alkaline cells have been commercialized. They are capable of even better performance at high discharge rates than the standard models. This has been made possible by a further reduction of the cell resistance through: coatings applied to both the negative and positive current collector; using a finer graphite grade; and, packing more MnO2 into the space available for the cathode.

Cell Materials and Construction The anode is formed by high surface area Zn powder mixed with the electrolyte and, in some cases, a gelling agent. As Zn converts into ZnO during reduction, a volume increase ensues. Therefore, a portion of the volume occupied by the anode has to accommodate this expansion. 9): the holes allow air access; the air diffuser layer distributes O2 uniformly over the cathode; the hydrophobic Teflon layer is O2permeable but limit water vapor access; the air cathode is formed by a metallic mesh supporting the catalyst layer (carbon blended with Mn oxides and Teflon powder).

0 volts and a variety of sizes. 8. Continuous discharge curves of a Zn/Ag2O cell (rated capacity, 165 mAh) at room temperature. (From Ref. 5. Zinc/Air Batteries Zinc/air batteries, in their button form factor, are primarily designed to provide power to miniature hearing aids. In most hearing aid applications, these batteries can be directly substituted for Zn/Ag2O batteries and will typically give the longest hearing aid service of any common battery system. 3 V) • More stable voltage at high currents than silver oxide miniature batteries • Essentially constant internal resistance • Activated by removing covering (adhesive backed tab) from air access hole • Constant capacity vs.
