Aluminum cased cells were tested for leaks, with a Helium leak detector, before filling. Hull cell experiments showed best lithium deposition 10 to 4 ma per square cm for lithium chloroaluminate solutions. Silver chloride solubility was 10 to the 10th power times more insoluble in propylene carbonate than in water. Heat of reaction for lithium-silver chloride was found to be 67.5 1 K calmole. Lithium-silver chloride cell cycle life was improved at high temperature. The nickel chloride utilization initial discharge in a lithium-nickel chloride cell was found to be 20 for a voltage end point of 1.88 volts. Author
