Extending the shelf life of Acetic Acid battery

    Why do Acetic Acid Battery power devices only for short periods of time? Does it have to do with Capacitance?

    Capacitance is a property of a capacitor, not battery. In the case of battery we speak about its capacity. Basically the more electrode material inside the battery, the higher the capacity.

    What is the acetic acid battery? What is the reaction responsible for its working? What are the amounts of electrode materials present?
