Abstract:

A literature search of magnesium cell technology was conducted to determine which formulations, ratios, and materials give maximum battery performance and minimum delayed action in the magnesium-manganese dioxide electrochemical system. Bench and oven testing was also carried out to determine the most suitable raw materials for the first series of batteries. Two lots of batteries, one lot using magnesium perchlorate electrolyte and one using magnesium bromide electrolyte, were assembled with each battery containing five flat cells using magnesium anodes. Initial performance figures on BA-399, continuous and intermittent drain discharge tests are given. Author
