A lightweight and improved nickel-hydrogen cell composed of a plurality of parallel connected cell plates is provided by making the conductor leads from each of the plurality of plates to the electrical terminals of the cell have substantially the same electrical resistance, and contain the minimum amount of material. The problems encountered with the relatively new exotic batteries and the restrictions placed upon them in their usage in outer space environments are novel. It is in the critical and extremely important areas of weight and cell life with which this invention further advances the art.
