Why have mercuric oxide batteries disappeared from the market?

Answer:

Although mercury batteries were characterized by relatively high voltages and a low internal resistance, they contain 30% of the environmentally harmful heavy metal mercury. Therefore, it has been decided to discontinue the global production of these battery types. In contrast, for a small number of these batteries a replacement zinc air battery entered the market.
