Abstract
An expanded zinc anode suitable for use in a reserve-primary zinc/air battery has been developed. Various mesh sizes and electrode configurations have been investigated and the effects of amalgamation studied. When samples of the optimized amalgamated electrode were discharged in zinc/air bicells at a current density of 16 mA/square cm, zinc utilizations of from 34% at -40C to 72% at 50C were recorded. The low temperature performance of this electrode is significantly better than that of a porous zinc anode previously developed.
