Abstract
A set of measurements has been found useful in the laboratory at DREO for characterizing nickel/cadmium aircraft cells. It is thought such measurements would also be useful in the battery shop to aid in the making of decisions on the need for reconditioning or for discarding cells which are no longer safe or satisfactory. Most of the experience at DREO has, however dealt with old or rebuilt batteries. Recently one new 22Ah battery from Marathon and two new 36Ah batteries from SAFT were obtained. Results of the measurements on these are therefore of special interest. The paper briefly outlines the measurements and presents the data obtained.
