Murata Icon X Feature

  • Excellent cost performance
    High cost performance has been achieved owing to the use of manganese dioxide as a cathode material.
  • Excellent stable discharge and high-drain pulse discharge characteristics
    Stable voltage output is available during the high-drain pulse discharge.
  • Excellent leakage resistance
    Murata-unique sealing structure, coupled with special sealing- material treatment, has helped accomplish the excellent leakage resistance.
  • RoHS  directive・European Directives
    This product does not contain Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd), nor Lead (Pb), and conforms to EC regulation values (Directive 2006/66/EC, 2013/56/EU).

Murata Icon X Principle of Alkaline manganese Battery

Manganese dioxide (MnO2) is used for the active cathode material, and specially processed fine zinc-alloy powder is used for the active anode material. Potassium hydroxide is used as an electrolyte.
Battery discharge reactions are follows
Principle of Alkaline manganese Battery

With open circuit voltage of approx. 1.50V, 
the battery voltage is extremely stable and impedance remains low during discharge.
