Abstract : Sealed zinc-oxygen cells attained 100 cycles with a 15-25% reduction in capacity. Several basic approaches were taken to reduce the rate of zinc shape change, which is the major failure mode of the zinc-oxygen system. Little success was attained by these approaches. Several basic approaches are suggested for resolving the zinc shape change problem in future zinc-oxygen cell designs. (Author)
