Abstract:

Environmental tests of ten 2HN and ten 6TN type nickel-cadmium batteries were conducted while installed in test and facility vehicles operated over various types of terrain at Yuma Test Station, Yuma, Arizona. Cell vent release plugs failed to function at prescribed pressures resulting in cell failures in all the batteries. It is recommended the durability of the nickelcadmium battery be considered satisfactory when the deficiencies in the cell vent plug are corrected and that the configuration of future batteries be improved to make them more compatible with the battery boxes of existing ordnance vehicles.
