Does a graphite rod from a battery live longer than the battery's shell in sea water?

I'd found small graphite rods on the beach and wonder where they come from. I did a search online and found that they look very much like the graphite rods extracted from batteries, only that there is no sign from any other material on the graphite, nor was anything similar to a battery found on the same beach. So, I wonder what a battery's circle of life would be once disposed in the sea.
Btw, I know one is supposed to properly recycle batteries.
Tnx.

'ye olde' Zinc Carbon dry cells are actually a bit more complex in real life than just an anode, cathode and gel. For starters there is the tinned steel outer casing, then usually a polyethylene inner liner to stop it leaking and the electrolyte is ammonium chloride in a manganese dioxide matrix. Then there is the zinc anode and graphite cathode. Large concentrations of batteries disposed on in coral reefs have been shown to kill the coral and reduce biodiversity in the locality. This situation occurs particularly where divers use dry cells in their dive torches to go spear fishing and then dump their batteries irresponsibly. [happens a lot in small island communities].

When disposed of the outer shell corrodes fairly rapidly, adding Tin and iron to the local environment. The tin is toxic. The manganese dioxide is a powder so falls away but is slow to dissolve so it produces a local toxic hot spot. The Ammonium Chloride dissolves rapidly so is no real problem. The polyethylene shield does not react or dissolve and just adds to the plastic refuse burden of the sea, being soft and light it will separate from the battery and be broken up eventually. The graphite rod is inert, and moderately hard. It does eventually get eroded but you will find them getting washed up on the beach often some distance from where the dry cells were disposed of. Remember seeing thousands of them on the beaches of WW2 landing sites such as Palmalmal, and Kokopo/Vunapope and elsewhere.
