Abstract:

Testing and evaluating the performance of primary alkaline cells was completed. The cells are of the zinc-alkaline-mercuric oxide system-- the 1R, 12R, 42R, 502R, 625R, 640R, 650R, 1438R and 1450R cell-types. The reported areas of performance are EMF over 36 months of 70F storage initial-discharge service from 12 to 100-hour rates and at temperatures from -20 to 200F and storage reliability and delayed-discharge service for storage temperatures of -20 to 160F and periods of storage up to 36 months. This for all cell-types. Also, 1000-hour rate delayed-discharge service for the 42R with storage from -20 to 160F and up to 36 months in length and service after cyclic-temperature storage for 12R, 625R and 640R cells. Better performance was found in the 42R and 502R for EMF the 502R and 650R for initial discharge at high temperatures the 1438R and 1450R for initial discharge at low temperatures the 42R, 502R, 640R and 650R for storage reliability and the 42R, 502R, 1450R and 650R for retention of service hours with storage.
