Abstract : Research was directed toward the attainme of a reliable sealed cadium - silver oxide battery. Among the areas investigated and discussed are improvements in separation, capacity efficiency, overcharge characteristics, and hermetic seals. The voltage, capacity, self-discharge, charge efficiency, and life characteristics of cells utilizing the positive plate at both its divalent and monovalent capacity levels are discussed. Although the ultimate in performance was not attained, sufficient data were accumulated to allow the construction of sealed cadmium - silver oxide cells with reliable performance characteristics.
