restricting dry cell current leaks
So i have all this material and am constructing a few dry cells, had an idea for minimizing the current leakage. Wondering if anybody has tried this or has any ideas...

Typical dry cells you have 2 holes drilled, one upper, one lower, straight through all the plates and one end wall. My first question is, if i go this route, how big do these holes need to be(or really how small can i get away with)??

My idea was instead of having the upper and lower holes straight through, stagger them, so say your solution comes in in the bottom right, first plate has a hole in the bottom right, next plate has a hole in the bottom left, next has a hole in the bottom right, so on and so fourth. Same thing with the gas outlet holes on the top.

It would seem to me that in this configuration the leaking current would have to pass through much more electrolyte(longer distance) and therefore reduce it.
