an·ode

 (ăn′ōd′)
n.
1. A positively charged electrode, as of an electrolytic cell, storage battery, diode, or electron tube.
2. The negatively charged terminal of a primary cell or of a storage battery that is supplying current.

[Greek anodos, a way up : ana-, ana- + hodos, way.]

a·nod′ic (ə-nŏd′ĭk), a·nod′al (ə-nōd′l) adj.
a·nod′i·cal·ly, a·nod′al·ly adv.

anode

(ˈænəʊd)
n
1. (General Physics) the positive electrode in an electrolytic cell
2. (General Physics) Also called (esp US): plate the positively charged electrode in an electronic valve
3. (General Physics) the negative terminal of a primary cell. Compare cathode
[C19: from Greek anodos a way up, from hodos a way; alluding to the movement of the current to or from the positive pole]
anodal, anodic adj

an•ode

(ˈæn oʊd)

n.
1. the electrode or terminal by which current enters an electrolytic cell, voltaic cell, battery, etc.
2. the negative terminal of a voltaic cell or battery.
3. the positive terminal, electrode, or element of an electron tube or electrolytic cell.
[1834; < Greek ánodos upward path =an- an-3 + hodós way, road]
an•od′ic (-ˈɒd ɪk) adj.

an·ode

(ăn′ōd′)
1. The positive electrode in an electrolytic cell, toward which negatively charged particles are attracted. The anode has a positive charge because it is connected to the positively charged end of an external power supply.
2. The negative electrode in a voltaic cell, such as a battery, toward which positively charged particles are attracted. The anode gets its negative charge from the chemical reaction that happens inside the battery, not from an external source. Compare cathode.

anode

1. Electrode carrying the positive charge in a solution undergoing electrolysis.
2. A positive electrode.

When a stack is shut down and isolated from the fuel supply hydrogen in the anode will slowly defuse out or be oxidised by oxygen that defuses through the membrane.
If you use the practice of marking diodes with a (+) on the anode, we don't have any more information than if you didn't mark it at all.
Recharging the battery reverses the process, and the ions travel back and stick onto the anode. But when they do, the ions don't attach evenly.
Most recently, they have purchased and relocated to an 18,000 square foot warehouse and office space at 569 Main Street in Hudson, Massachusetts: a new, permanent base of operations for "The Online Superstore for Zinc Anodes."
If you replaced the magnesium anode rod with a similar one, the problem has recurred.
Replacements for both the anode rod and dip tube can be found at most plumbing supply houses.
In addition, it was possible to significantly accelerate the process of bottling blister copper from the anode furnace.

Using different anode materials allows tuning of the emitted eV energy.
Silicon anodes are one part of the multi-variable materials technologies pushing to improve LiB energy density, but the latest generation of high-energy anode and cathode systems rapidly degrade traditional LiB electrolytes.
During operation, Li-ions move from the anode to the cathode during discharging, and in the reverse direction during charging.
