Abstract : The invention concerns itself with a heat-activated battery that employs an aluminum electrode and a non-aqueous, fusible electrolyte comprising aluminum chloride saturated with sodium chloride. The entire cell is filled with the electrolyte. It is further divided into two compartments by means of a porous membrane. The first compartment contains an aluminum electrode, while the second compartment contains an inert electrode plus finely divided carbon. The porous membrane permits the free transport of the electrolyte from one compartment to the other.
