Progress is reported on a reliable sealed cadmium - silver oxide battery. Effort is directed toward the development of both cadmium - divalent silver oxide and cadmium - monovalent silver oxide cells, and studying the performance characteristics of each system. Of the major problems en countered, probably the most important is the relative inconsistency of available separator materials, including both areal resistance and cycle life measurements. Continuous overcharge at rates up to C10 have been attained, but only at a loss in capacity efficiency of approximately 35. Problems of this nature must be surmounted before reliable cadmium - silver oxide cells can be produced.
