The Fuller mercury bichromate battery, Fig. 1, is a most excellent one for any or all of the uses to which strong carbon batteries are adapted. Having all the powerful qualities of any of the various forms of carbon-electropoion batteries, its two great advantages consist in its being self-amalgamating from the supply of mercury in the porous cell, and in the great amount of sulphuric acid and bichromate (electropoion) capable of being held in the outside jar, thus giving much longer action than can be sustained in other acid batteries. At the same time its quantitative effect
