Abstract : The fabrication of prototype organic electrolyte cells having wide operating temperature range and high energy density is proceeding. Testing of these cells has yielded energy densities of 40 watt hours per pound at -30C. This energy density is attained during a 400 hour discharge. Tests on developmental cells at room temperature have given energy densities over 70 watt hours per pound during discharge extending over 1600 hours. Tests on developmental cells at 0C have run over 800 hours and are continuing. (Author)
