Abstract:

The report describes the work performed to improve the low temperature performance of zinc-mercuric oxide batteries for transceiver applications. Described is a cell employing two anode and depolarizer parts arranged as nested concentric annular cylinders with interposed separator and absorbent layers as prewound tubes. Maximum electrode surface area was thus developed. A non-woven mat of polyamide nylon fibers was selected as an absorbent, and four acceptable separator materials were screened from a group of fifteen, the final selection depending on material adaptation to cell configuration. The cells design and performance are examined. Author
