Batteries of the Partz Electric Company.
In a recent issue we published a description and illustration of the acid gravity battery of the Partz Electric Company, of Philadelphia, and in this issue we present two views of other excellent batteries manufactured by this company. In Fig. 1 is shown their open circuit battery for annunciators, telephones, gas burners, etc. This battery can be easily restored by the user, the electrolyte consisting simply of a neutral solution rich in oxygen. The initial electromotive force claimed for this battery is 1.6 volts per cell, and strength of current 2.8 amperes. By slotting the carbon cathodes their surface has been increased and double anodes are used, as shown, rendering the battery particularly effective. The cells are easily closed, and there is but slight evaporation.
Fig. 2 is a view of this company's medical battery, which has become popular among the users of this kind of battery.
