Abstract:

Facilities for producing flat cell type BA2270U-XLT-1 batteries at a pilot line level were activated. Fifty preproduction batteries were made for Signal Corps testing and approval. Five hundred production batteries were then constructed of which 310 were in-plant tested and 190 submitted to the Signal Corps for testing. In-plant performance results, up to and including 24 months delay, are reported for the BA-2270U battery of a flat cell construction. Discharge testing was conducted at 70, -20 and -40 F. Problems of electrolyte leakage are discussed along with their effect on performance. Author
