Electrochemical investigations were directed toward evaluation of 1.0 A.H. and 4.0 A.H. cylindrical NiCd sealed cells presently manufactured. Cell performance with respect to energy density per unit of weight and volume was determined over the temperature range of -40 to 160F charge rate was five hours for temperature above 0F, and ten hours for below 0F. Data with Viskon and Pellon separators are given at 80F, 160F, and -40F and at discharge rates of C5, 1C, 2C, and 3C. Sintered nickel positive plates containing Ni OH2 5 Co sintered nickel negative plates containing Cd OH2, and pasted negative plates of CdO are also investigated. Mechanical findings on cell proportions, plate areas versus plate arrangements, etc. on a 4.0 A.H. cell were evaluated. Battery configurations on three proposed batteries using cylindrical cells are also discussed and illustrated. Author
