The structure of a cell for a metal-gas battery is disclosed in which the cell components comprising the electrodes, separators, and electrolyte reservoirs are substantially planar structures, circular in shape and having a hole at the center. These components are stacked on a common axis perpendicular to their planar surfaces to form individual electrochemical cells. Individual cells may be similarly stacked to form a battery. The stack of flat ring-shaped components comprising a cell is enclosed in a plastic insulating cell case member providing a reactant gas manifold space at the inner circumference of the cell stack components inside the plastic enclosure. The cell or battery is enclosed in a conventional pressure vessel having conventional electrical connections.
