Abstract : It is the purpose of this invention to provide a battery which has a long-life operation and a low leakage current and a low internal resistance and which is capable of providing a relatively constant voltage output over its long life. Another object of the invention is to provide a battery wherein the reaction components produced during operation thereof do not interfere with its continuing operation. Yet another object of the invention is to provide a sea water activated battery wherein corrosion of nearby metal parts is reduced. Still another object of the invention is to provide a compact sea water activated battery including an internal volume suitable for receiving electronic components which can be connected to utilize the battery as a power supply.
