Abstract:

The construction and performance details for 4 cell sealed nickel-zinc batteries are presented. The batteries evaluated contained non-sintered positive nickel-hydroxide electrodes, Teflonated zinc oxide negative, AgHg oxygen recombination electrodes and inorganic separators containing a Teflon binder. Initially the capacities of the batteries were about 8.2Ah and yielded an energy density of almost 30Whlb. The swelling problems of the nickel hydroxide electrode were investigated.
