Abstract:

The chemical method of charging the nonlamellar cadmium electrode of an alkaline battery can be made more efficient if the electrode is soaked in a solution of nickel chloride before processing in the reducing solution, and if hydrazine is used as the reducing agent. Using this method, the nominal capacity of the electrode can be obtained on the first discharge.
