This report describes experiments to devise means for rapidly raising the specific gravity of the cells of submarine main storage batteries from the peace-time to the war-time gravity of 1.280. Of the methods employed, the old M.E.I method proved the slowest, the Naval Research Laboratory method requiring special equipment the fastest, while the new Bureau method discharges omitted proved nearly as fast as the latter. The report recommends that the new Bureau method be used.
