Silver oxide (Ag2O) is used for the active cathode material, and Specially processed fine zinc-alloy powder is used for the active anode material. Potassium hydroxide is used for high drain type silver oxide battery as a electrolyte, and sodium hydroxide is used for low drain type.
Battery discharge reactions are follows
With open circuit voltage of approx. 1.55V, the battery voltage is extremely stable and impedance remains low during discharge.
- 60°C 20-days and 60°C 40-days storage conditions are equivalent to 1 years and 2 years, respectively, at room temperature.
- Excellent long-term reliability
- After storage, decrease in discharge time is minima1.
