Abstract : A continuation of efforts to increase cathodic efficiency in the A battery cell lead to the development of a wrap cell geometry which resulted in an output of 1.90 watt hour/cu in. This represented some degree of improvement over the previously recorded peak for this material combination (1.47 WH/cu in). The first successful single cell performance after a prolonged activated stand was observed in connection with the use of a recently examined separator material. This performance overshot design goals considerably and shows decided promise for incorporation into the B battery design. Major improvements were made in the activator design for the A battery with respect to the ammonia transfer mechanism. This modification involves a modified bellows principle and has to date shown increased efficiency of operation and a high degree of reliability. Full stack cell assemblies were tested in the C battery design employing both single and double cathodes. Performance specifications were met at all temperature levels. (Author)
