We've discussed starting batteries here before, so here's what I found.
I had a dead "Pairdeer" 1.5V battery (like this one)
Starting batteries Pd4r2510
so i pulled it apart and found 4 cells in parallel, probably alkaline.
Starting batteries 100_4513
I suspected that the current No.6 type bell batteries,
Starting batteries At-1_510
originally a single cell carbon, was probably the same, with multiple cells, but I was surprised to find this.
Starting batteries 100_4514
Starting batteries 100_4515

So there you go, the No.6, or at least the locally available ones, are still a single cell carbon.  I was surprised.  I can't say they last any better or worse than the square "Pairdeer" type, but the last one I got did seem to die pretty quickly.  I think they last equally well.  Both cost about $10 each AUD.

That's nasty looking , Never seen the atomic before !? I liked the battery box that I think it was Lieven made very simple and light weight https://www.coxengineforum.com/t4864-home-made-battery-box?highlight=starter+battery in this thread $

Yeah, the No.6 battery was getting pretty sick and all corroded, but the picture was just to prove that it was just a single carbon cell inside. You can see the large carbon rod up the centre with the black "electrolite" caked around it. I'm sure there are others on the market that use mul;tiple cells packed in a No.6 style case, but this is what I found with the local one.
The Atomic battery is sold by Model Engines, a local Aussie seller. It's made in China so I'm sure the same battery is sold under a different brand elsewhere.
