Abstract : The objectives of this program was to cycle life test vented silver-cadmium cells, in four sizes with a common base area. The rated cell capacities, at the five-hour discharge rates, were: 7.0 ampere-hours, 15.0 ampere-hours, 22.0 ampere-hours, 31.0 ampere-hours. The report gives the cell capacities for each of the 112th manual discharge cycles, following 110 successive automatic and one manual cycle at 62-1/2% depth of discharge. The automatic cycling regime consisted of a 6 hour orbit, 3-1/2 hours of charging, and 2-1/2 hours of discharge. The report gives data on cell capacities for a total of 1008 cycles. (Author)
