The purpose of this development contract is to design a practical magnesium wafer battery which performs satisfactorily after storage for various periods at ambient temperatures up to 160F. The initial phase of development includes the design of a cell and the resulting battery systems which perform reliably after being subjected to storage at 70F and 113F. Batteries are being constructed using both eight and nine cells in a series. Discharge results indicate it is possible to reproducibly build nine cell batteries and predict their performance after storage at 70F and 113F. Capacity results after storage at 130F are erratic and, for all practical purposes, there is no performance after storage at 160F. Author
