patent description
Battery electrodes with desirable discharge performance comprise manganese oxide and magnetic particles. Corresponding power cells have improved specific discharge capacities. Furthermore, magnetically modified manganese dioxide electrodes are found to have significantly improved cycling properties that suggest the possibility for improved performance in secondary batteries.
