Abstract:

The use of palladium in the positive plate appears to increase the cycle life of silver zinc cells when cycled at 25 depth of discharge. The operation on the monovalent silver level during charge and discharge appears to be exhausted anywhere from 400 to 1000 cycles. Additional cells are under construction with 2 palladium in the positive plate to determine if operation on the monovalent voltage level can be extended in cycle life and if higher depths of discharges 40 can be accomplished for at least 500 cycles.
