A new nickel plated mild steel with inner dimensions of LR6 cell and with a detachable bottom plug has been designed for the evaluation of manganese dioxide particularly for alkaline cells. The technique has been standardized for rapid evaluation, by optimizing graphite content, at a discharge current of 125m.A.G-1 simulating 1 ampere load of LR6 cell. The cell can be used for evaluation of other active material also for characterization of Mno2 with respect to compatability, conductivity, porosity, density, volume change in electrolyte and alkali adsorption.
