Abstract:

Hermetically sealed SO2 D cells were fabricated and tested to improve safety during useabuse conditions. Variables evaluated were wrap configurations, cathode processing, cathode density, lithium content and SO2 concentration. At 2A constant current, at -20 deg F and room temperature, respectively, no venting occurred to 200 of the theoretical SO2 content. Discharge efficiency had the most influence on the safety and cathode development contributed most to improving the overall cell efficiency. Autho
