Abstract:

Research, development and design efforts have been directed toward the attainment of a reliable sealed cadmium - silver oxide battery. Among the areas investigated and discussed are improvement in separation, capacity efficiency, overcharge characteristics, retention-of-capacity at temperatures from -65 to 165 F, and hermetic seals. In addition, the voltage, capacity, self-discharge, charge efficiency, and life characteristics of cells utilizing the positive plate at both the divalent and monovalent capacity levels are discussed. Sufficient data have been accumulated to allow the construction of sealed cells with acceptable performance characteristics suggesting that the program be advanced to the applied and production phases.
