Abstract:

The report describes the significant accomplishments made on the research and development of magnesium magnesium perchlorate batteries. Data are presented concerning electrical characteristics from -40F to 125F of magnesiummercuric oxide six-cell batteries at low, medium and high rates. The variation of freezing point depression within the concentration range of 1 N. to 6 N. magnesium perchlorate was determined experimentally. Preliminary tests on manganese dioxide cathodes showed promise that further development can produce low cost cathodes with the same or better energy output as the costly mercuric oxide depolarizer.
