Abstract:

MgMgClO42 CuO reserve cells were characterized on high rates using a cell design previously developed. Several voltage variations, caused by the heat evolved, were noted during discharge. A research study was initiated to determine the mechanism by which the heat evolved influences the voltage behavior of the system. Shelf-life programs were initiated to study the delayed action, impedance, and capacity retention characteristics of the MgMgClO42 MnO2 and MgMgClO42CuO dry cells. Initial delayed action, impedance and capacity data are presented for the MnO2 cells.
