Maxell Unveils Advanced Silver-Oxide Cell

Maxell Corporation of America, a technology and marketing firm, has released a new, improved silver-oxide, which maintains battery life similar to traditional silver-oxide cells. The environmentally friendly cell decreases the amount of lead and mercury present in the cathode material to zero.

Silver-oxide cells employ an alkaline solution for the electrolyte, zinc for the anode electrode and silver-oxide for the cathode electrode. These long-life cells are employed in wristwatches. Less quantity of lead and mercury are utilized in conventional silver-oxide cells for anti-corrosive property. This feature reduces the gas generation and improves long-term reliability. The company was able to accomplish the production of zero-lead, zero-mercury cell using a corrosion-resistant zinc alloy and an innovative cathode anti-corrosion technology.

Maxell manufactures battery and data storage products and the new silver-oxide cell represents the company’s commitment to develop and market environmentally friendly products. It also produces a complete range of electronics care, maintenance, and other accessory products such as sound bars, headphones and flash media.
