Abstract:

A better understanding has been obtained of the factors contributing to the previously observed slower practical activation of the -53 C batteries as compared to single cells under ideal conditions. Tests indicate a larger percentage of the batteries activate in less than 3 seconds, with several about 1 second. A new high-rate cathode possibility silver sulfate has been found. Permion 300 separator has been found much better than cellophane for limiting the silver diffusion in the low-rate, long duration application.
