Category: Carbon-Zinc

A carbon-zinc battery is a type of primary battery that uses a zinc-carbon reaction to produce electrical energy.

It consists of a zinc anode, a carbon cathode, and an electrolyte solution of ammonium chloride or zinc chloride. Carbon-zinc batteries are a low-cost and popular option for use in low-drain devices such as clocks, remote controls, and flashlights.

However, they have a shorter lifespan and lower energy density compared to other battery types.
