Abstract
The study employed both vibrationally damaged, commercial Li/SO2 cells (Duracell LO29SX) and model cells designed to closely simulate the vibrationally damaged commercial cells. In most cases, the commercial cells were discharged as part of a four cell, serially connected battery using a fixed 200 Ohm load. Model cells were discharged using a constant current of 250 mA. The somewhat higher discharge current was employed because the surface area of the anodic lithium in the model cells was about four times larger than that in the typical damaged commercial cell. In both model cells and commercial cells the cell voltage exhibited an unsteady, fluctuating discharge profile. Reference electrodes in the model cells showed such fluctuations to be attributable to processes involving the anodic lithium.
