(2) E<sub>lj</sub> is the potential of the liquid junction between the given electrolyte and the electrolyte with the activity of chloride of 1 mol/kg.''
The electrode has many features making is suitable for use in the field:
* Simple construction
* Inexpensive to manufacture
* Stable potential
* Non-toxic components
They are usually manufactured with saturated potassium chloride electrolyte, but can be used with lower concentrations such as 1 [[Concentration#Molality|mol/kg]] potassium chloride. As noted above, changing the electrolyte concentration changes the electrode potential. Silver chloride is slightly soluble in strong potassium chloride solutions, so it is sometimes recommended the potassium chloride be saturated with silver chloride to avoid stripping the silver chloride off the silver wire.
