Abstract:

The magnesiummagnesium perchloratemercuric oxide battery system exhibited good capacity and voltage tolerance for most of the discharge rates at 75F. Low temperature and high temperature studies of these batteries, conducted at the same discharge rates, demonstrated that this system operates at high efficiency over a temperature range of 40F to 125F. An activated stand of one week with less than 10 capacity loss can be expected from a mercuric oxide cell utilizing AZ 31.
