Dry Cell vs Wet Cell-Difference between Dry Cell and Wet Cell
This page compares Dry Cell vs Wet Cell and mentions difference between Dry Cell and Wet Cell.
• An electrochemical cell which has low moisture electrochemical electrolyte is known as dry cell. Hence dry cells are less prone to leakage. Due to this reason dry cells are used for most of the portable applications.
• An electro-chemical cell which has liquid electrolyte is known as wet cell. The wet cells are used as energy source for motor vehicles and cars.
The figure-1 depicts Dry Cell and Wet Cell. Following table describes difference between Dry Cell and Wet Cell.
