Abstract:

The report describes the design, development, and fabrication of the BA-535PRC-70 battery which is adaptable for use as either a 12.0 or a 24.0 volt system. The unit has a rated capacity of 20 ampere hours at 24 volts and 40 ampere hours when discharged at 12.0 volts. The batteries make use of the bi-cell dual cathode system and are designed to be activated by the addition of water. Since the BA-535PRC-70 is a primary system, it is to be used once and then discarded. Although the battery was primarily designed for use with the PRC-70 Field Radio System, it has been tested at other operating regimes. Modified author abstract
