The purpose of this contract is to evaluate the Sohio molten salt secondary battery for vehicle propulsion. The Sohio battery uses a molten lithium chloride-potassium chloride electrolyte, activatable carbon cathodes with special additives to increase capacity and lithium alloy anodes. Test results on Sohio cells indicate that a 100 WHlb. battery is possible if a 50 improvement in cathode performance can be achieved, if a stable electrode spacer is developed which allows tighter unit cell packaging, if container and seal weights are reduced and if life of cathode is extended.
