Abstract : There is no practical alternative to the use of primary batteries to power man-portable electronic equipment for communications, surveillance, target acquisition, and Night Vision applications. For an increasing percentage of such newly-developed equipments, power and energy density requirements are so high that only the most energetic electrochemical couples can be considered for the purpose. Cells utilizing sulfuryl chloride as the cathode reactant are the latest and most energetic of the 'liquid cathode cells' resulting from research initiated at the Electronics Technology and Devices Laboratory in the early 1970s.
