Abstract : The results of this effort indicate that no correlation could be established between any particular charging mode and any resulting enhanced cell capacity, all tested cells being considered. A further result was that the cells exhibited high variability of performance when compared to one which had outstanding stability under all test conditions. Further study is recommended to investigate the actual performance of batteries, using mini-nickel cadmium cells produced for field use. As a result, new standards for sealed mini-nickel cadmium cell performance should be evolved for future rechargeable battery systems. (Author)
