Inside of battery-operated devices requiring the batteries to be stacked end-to-end, how come the batteries in the middle don’t quickly neutralized when the electrons from the negative cell flow through the positive?
For anyone that doesn’t know, and I hope I’m not relaying incorrect information, a regular voltaic battery like a Duracell or Energizer has a negatively charged end where electricity flows through the device it’s being used for, powering the device, before completing its circuit to the positively charged end and the charges cancelling out/neutralizing. The battery is dead when the there’s little to no charge difference between the cells.
When batteries are stacked end-to-end in like a flashlight, won’t the negatively charged ends in the middle flow through the positive end of the next battery? Why aren’t they more quickly neutralized then?
