Abstract : Nine Type CR-6-3000 charge-retaining batteries have been built. These batteries were designed and built to yield an uninterrupted, unattended two-year service cycle. This report summarizes the work that has been done over the past six years, beginning with the initial development stages and culminating in delivery of batteries to the Coast Guard for both laboratory testing and actual buoy service.
