What is the function of carbon rod in dry cell?

The carbon rod in a dry cell doesn’t take part in the electrochemical reactions that occur in a cell to produce an electric current. However, the carbon rod simply allows the flow of electrons. The carbon powder increases the electrical conductivity of the Manganese dioxide (Mn02) and retains the moisture of the electrolyte.
