Abstract : Moderately high rate organic electrolyte batteries were recently developed. A program was conducted to evaluate their performance in comparison to the fairly well-established magnesium-manganese dioxide system with an aqueous magnesium perchlorate electrolyte which, as a reserve type battery, is being investigated for use as a lightweight, all temperature power source for modern communications equipment, notably the AN/PRC-62. Batteries of both systems were evaluated under a range of conditions to establish general feasibility for the AN/PRC-62 application.
