Abstract : A secondary battery utilizing lithium and silver chloride electrodes with a nonaqueous electrolyte was shown to be feasible. The lithium-silver chloride cell has an open circuit voltage of 2.9 volts, was operated at an energy density of 25 watt hours per pound, and indicated reversible operation at up to 10% depths of discharge. Continued investigation of the lithium-silver chloride system was performed with the fabrication of a long life, high energy density secondary battery for aerospace applications as its goal.
