Abstract:

Twenty ampere-hour and 32 ampere-hour ZincAir cells were tested on the PRC-70 radio high rate regimen using air flow achieved by natural convection and by means of a blower. Performance data are presented for both cell types. Research on the Yardney platinum catalyzed air electrodes is given. The results of endurance tests on air cathodes are summarized. The effect of expanders and additives on the zinc anode performance was investigated. A BA-525 ZincAir Battery 20 cells, 20 AH engineering prototype was fabricated in order to evaluate the capability of the system on the PRC-70 radio test regimen.
