A Brief Description of Zinc-Carbon Batteries

The Zinc-carbon battery is packaged in a zinc can that serves as both a container and anode. It was developed from the wet “Super” or “Heavy Duty” batteries, technically called zinc chloride cells, are an improved version from the cheaper “General Purpose” variety. The cathode is a mixture of manganese dioxide and carbon powder. The electrolyte is a paste of zinc chloride and ammonium chloride dissolved in water.

Zinc carbon batteries are the least expensive primary batteries and thus a popular choice by manufacturers when devices are sold with batteries included. They can be used in remote controls, flashlights, toys, or transistor radios, where the power drain is not too heavy.

Through continuous technical improvement, our carbon batteries are environmentally friendly, do not contain mercury and lead, and comply with the EU’s ROHS certification.

we use the thicker zinc can, purer manganese dioxide, imported glue, and use the most advanced production lines in the word, The leakage resistance of our battery is very good, very suitable for some high-end and low-power electrical appliances.
