Unlike silver oxide batteries that use the precious metal, silver, the alkaline battery features good cost-performance because it uses low-cost manganese dioxide as its active material.
Superior leakage* resistance
Like silver oxide batteries, the LR battery is manufactured using the Maxell’s original leak-resistant processing that suppresses the electrolyte from rising up and seeping out — a basic phenomenon of alkaline electrolytes.
* Leakage is defined as an unintended escape of liquid from a battery.
Excellent heavy load characteristics
The LR battery offers excellent heavy load characteristics and employs a separator featuring low internal resistance, good liquid holding properties and high-drain characteristics.

The Maxell’s LR battery is a compact, light and economical alkaline battery having a nominal voltage of 1.5V. The LR battery is less expensive than silver oxide batteries and usable with a wide variety of equipment, ranging from electronic calculators to electric toys.
Based on many years of experience and know-how in the field of silver oxide batteries, the LR battery boasts high quality and high reliability.
- Principle and reaction
The button-type alkaline battery uses manganese dioxide (MnO2) as its positive active material and zinc (Zn) as its negative active material. Potassium hydroxide (KOH) is used as an electrolyte.
