Abstract:

The work was concerned with the development of pasted silver and pressed cadmium electrodes. Three cells, 15 ampere-hour capacity, were built using the new electrodes. Available test data show the cells with the pressed cadmium oxide electrodes to yield superior performance over the cadmium metal electrode. The two cells with the cadmium oxide electrodes performed satisfactorily when subjected to the capacity and cold temperature discharges. During the seven day charged storage test at 160F, the two cells gave 11.6 ampere-hours, just short of the 12.0 ampere-hours specified. New tests are being conducted with an improved cadmium oxide mix electrode to improve capacity after high temperature storage. Author
