In Batteries That Is....

a: Electrode ~
b: a piece of foil

What: "Traditionally, flat-stacked batteries have been difficult and expensive to produce. "An electrode is like a piece of foil, but thinner than what you use in the kitchen," explains Feaver. "The separator is even thinner yet and can behave like the kitchen plastic wrap you use to cover bowls, sticking to itself or wrinkling. In a cell, the electrodes and separator must be aligned very precisely, which is exceedingly difficult and time- consuming with these thin materials."
