There's a great science fiction story called "The Survival Game" by Colin Kapp, where the protagonist finds himself stranded with three others, and uses his knowledge of electro-chemistry to provide for them all - Kapp was an electrochemist and really knew his stuff. He synthesises sodium hypochlorite, sodium chlorate, oxygen & hydrogen and saves the day.

Umm. What kind of Cell are you trying to make? A Daniel cell perhaps? Cause wether you even need Salt of any kind depends on what you are making. Also do you have a instruction from somewhere or are you just messing around?
Remember chemistry can be dangerous and in some cases like PeterCD bluntly puts it lethal byproducts can be formed. Remember to always check that you are using the proper material and perform experiments in a well ventilated room.
