Title: Electrochemical cell and cell assembly process

Abstract: An electrochemical cell and method of assembling electrochemical cellhaving a container, an anode, a cathode, and a separator. The anodeincludes rounded zinc flakes coated on one surface with an absorbentgelling agent and disposed in the container. An electrolyte solution isadded to the container so that at least some of the electrolyte isabsorbed by the absorbent gelling agent.
