Abstract : A bipolar electrode having, between active materials, a heat sink fabricated from a porous electrical and heat conductive material, such as sintered silver, and impregnating the porous material with a phase-change heat absorbent material having a high heat of fusion, such as beeswax, provides an electrode having a very large thermal capacity for a high discharge current density battery.
