Abstract : Development of a Mg/MgBr2/MnO2 flat cell battery was undertaken. Areas of investigation that re ceived special attention were conductive coating of magnesium alloys, cathode mix formulations, duplex electrode and cell assembly techniques. Increased capacity was obtained through adequate venting of hydrogen gas and proper choice of sealing materials. Capacity data on the effects of various parameters studied were obtained.
