Is well known that alkaline batteries have unpleasant feature - some of them are beginning to run out the electrolyte. In 55% of cases the cause of this is the residual zinc in the fully discharged batteries, which is beginning to react, accompanied by hydrogen. To the gas is not destroyed building batteries, it usually provides the vents, but sometimes through them, along with hydrogen released and chemically aggressive electrolyte. The company Hitachi Maxell said that she was able to solve this problem by using a special material called mikrotsink-alpha, in a drastically reduced amount of residual zinc in the rarefied battery. The manufacturer claims that he was able to solve the problem of the transfer of electrons through the oxides of zinc, formed in the process of the element. Reported that one of the most significant modifications have been some changes in the structure of the surface, but more detailed explanation of steps the company did not disclose. According to Hitachi Maxell, better use of zinc has increased the life of new batteries for 5%. In addition, the company announced an unprecedented guarantee for such batteries - in the identification of leakage at the time they use it pledged to free not only to replace the batteries, but also to repair/replace the device damaged spilled electrolyte. Home sales are expected from 1 April this year, the planned monthly sales volume - about 10 million of AA and AAA in the month, with the name of the family will not change, as well as other battery Hitachi Maxell, will be the new name of Voltage.
