The demand for improved energy storage systems has increased greatly with the evolution of new equipment requiring new and improved battery systems as a power source. Critical characteristics that power sources must accommodate are low cost, high energy density, light weight, and good storability. The present magnesiummanganese dioxide electrochemical system provides high energy density at low cost. A magnesiummanganese dioxide electrochemical cell that has been stored following partial usage is improved by increasing the cathode moisture content at the time of making the cell to reduce the self discharge and increase the operating capacity after the cell has been stored following partial usage.
