Abstract : The possibility of developing a water activated, lead acid battery is discussed. Chemical systems are described to which water may be added in a dry charge battery to produce sulfuric acid electrolyte. These include concentrated sulfuric acid immobilized in the form of gels or powders and chemicals that can hydrolyze to form sulfuric acid. It is indicated that experimental programs of varying length and complexity are needed to establish the feasibility of any of the more promising approached. The approach that appears to be immediately most promising involves the use of concentrated sulfuric acid immobilized with pure silicon dioxide. (Author)
