Methods are herein described for the assembly and electrochemical characterization of Zn|MnO 2 and nickel|metal-hydride (Ni|MH) alkaline batteries incorporating single microparticles of the active materials. As evidenced by the data collected, the voltage-time profiles for constant current operation for both types of devices were found to be similar to those of commercially available batteries involving the same chemistries. These results open new prospects for the development of aqueous primary and secondary micropower sources for application in a variety of technical areas.
