Abstract
Investigation of the causes of poor low temperature charge acceptance of the lead acid battery at DREO has been primarily directed towards understanding and improving positive electrode characteristics. However, studies of the negative electrode, of electrolyte and electrode additives, of electrolyte composition, and of charging and heating methods for improving charge acceptance are also discussed. Previous research and recent advances are reviewed. Possible improvements are suggested. Recommendations for further research and development are made, based on the encouraging results of the current work and on the accumulated knowledge represented by the work reviewed.
