Abstract : The patent describes a salt package which is provided for use with mechanically rechargeable primary metal-air cells. The salt package is formed from a binder-salt mixture spread as a dry solid on a portion of the nonconductive webbing which serves as a cell separator and which surrounds the replaceable metal anode. The binder, which rapidly disintegrates when wetted, is selected to be nonreactive with cell components and to provide a durable solid when dry. Means for simultaneous insertion of the salt package and replaceable anode are provided.
