Analyses of cycle life test data on fully assembled elements disclose that multiple layers of membrane type separation sufficiently resist oxidation by, and retard migration of, the Ag ion. Capacity measurements of positive and 5370, Proj. 3A99-09-002 Unclassified report DESCRIPTORS Electrolytic cells, Wet cells, Storage batteries, Cadmium compounds, Silver compounds, Oxides, Battery separators, Seals, Materials, Design, Tests, Temperature.Analyses of cycle life test dative active materials were continued. The measurements cover the temperature range of -60 to 120 F. Charge efficiency data disclose that maximum capacity is obtained by subjecting either plate to 30 overcharge, regardless of the temperature at which the plates are charged. It was shown that the amount of electrolyte contained by a cadmium - silver oxide cell has considerable influence on capacity efficiency and rate of recombination. Apparent positive and negative plate density studies are discussed. Author
