Abstract : Work has continued using the standard size D cell as a test vehicle to improve the hermetic cell design with regard to venting and fusing. Passivation studies were also undertaken using three different approaches. Partially discharging the cells before storage gave mixed results, casting doubt on this method for improving the delay. Etching the anodes prior to assembly and cathode pretreatment also proved inadequate for improving the voltage delay. (Author)
