A dry cell is a galvanic electrochemical cell with a pasty electrolyte. A common dry cell is the zinc-carbon battery sometimes called the dry Leclanché cell, with a nominal voltage of 1.5 volts, the same nominal voltage as the alkaline battery. Multiple cells are commonly connected in series within a single case or battery compartment within a device to form a dry battery (or dry cell battery) of greater voltage than is provided by one cell. A wet cell, on the other hand, is a cell with a liquid electrolyte. Structure: zinc outer casting (anode)-layer of NH4 aqueous paste-mixture of powdered carbon & manganese IV oxide around a carbon rod (cathode) Mn is reduced from oxidation state of +4 to +3 A dry cell is realtively cheap and is the most common. It was the first commercial battery and therefore it had a big impact on society as it contributed to the development of things such as torches and portable radios. Dry Cell's formation Part of the band formed in 1998 when guitarist Danny Hartwell and drummer Brandon Brown met at the "Ratt Show" on the Sunset Strip. They later met up with then-vocalist Judd Gruenbaum. The original name of the band was "Beyond Control". After forming, the guys caught the attention of a Warner Brothers A&R Executive, Jeff Blue (responsible for Linkin Park), who then signed the band to a development deal. He also found a new lead singer for the band in Jeff Gutt from Detroit. In an interview with the website, "The A&R Online", Mr. Blue described Dry Cell (at the time tentatively called "Impúr") as: "they're like Metallica meets Incubus meets Linkin Park but heavier. No DJing, no rapping, very melodic and the kids are just phenomenal musicians". Mr. Blue also goes on to tell how he discovered the band: "A friend of mine told me about the drummer who was 11 at the time and said how amazing he was. I ended up hearing a demo that wasn't very good but because I was right down the street from where they were playing I went up and saw them and was actually very impressed. I made a development deal and have now been working with them for over a year and a half. I'm with them six hours, six days a week. I have them in a rehearsal room right next to Warner Brothers".

Signed to Warner Brothers Music, the band went to work recording their debut album titled, Disconnected. The 12 track album was due to be released on July 16, 2002 which was then later pushed back to August 27, 2002. Ultimately, one of the band member's fathers got into a heated argument with Mr. Blue regarding the size of the band's promotion budget, the result of months of behind-the-scenes disagreement. Within 48 hours the father took his complaints to Warner, and two days later they released Dry Cell from their contract. The only place Disconnected was ever sold at was during the "Locobazooka Festival" in 2002. These were the final Warner pressed copies complete with artwork. On extremely rare occasions copies are sold on eBay. However, advanced copies of the album which come in a paper sleeve cover and contain different artwork, can be found more regularly. The band always stated there was no chance of releasing the album, even if they were to sign a new record deal.  After Warner Brothers After their departure from Warner Music, Dry Cell continued on. Supposedly, Dry Cell had signed with Epic Records in March of 2003. But for reasons unknown, nothing further eventuated. In early 2004, Dave Wasizrski was named as the band's new vocalist, after Jeff Gutt departed to form his own band named "Acrylic". At the time, 8 new songs had supposedly been completed. With vocalist Jeff Gutt re-joining the band, they recorded four new demo tracks in 2005. The two songs released to the public were titled "New Revolution" and "The Lie". In late 2005, band members Jeff Gutt and Danny Hartwell quit, and the group has since disbanded. After their split, two other tracks titled "Into Oblivion" and "Find a Way" were made available for download via their MySpace site. Vocalist Jeff Gutt has since formed two new projects; "Band With No Name" and "Punch". Drummer Brandon Brown is now part of a group named "Katsumoto".
