A continuous-feed electrochemical cell with a cell body having a cell cavity defined by at least two cavity walls. One of the cavity walls is a cavity wall that is inclined to vertical. A series of barriers are connected to the cavity wall that is inclined to vertical. Electrochemically active particles are contained within the cell cavity. An electrolyte solution is also contained within the cell cavity. A cathode current collector is operatively connected to the cavity wall that is inclined to vertical, to the electrochemically active particles, and to the electrolyte solution. An anode current collector is operatively connected to the cavity wall that is inclined to vertical, to the electrochemically active particles, and to the electrolyte solution.
