Abstract
Despite problems with leakage of electrolyte, disintegration of the separator material and air starvation at the cathodes, batteries gave four hours of discharge at 3A, while maintaining the battery voltage between 20-30V at temperatures between -40 and 49C. Suggestions were made for improvements in the battery design.
