Abstract
The relative merits of nickel/cadmium (Ni/Cd), nickel hydrogen (Ni/H2) and silver/hydrogen (Ag/H2) batteries as sealed units for satellite use have been examined. At the present time it appears to be much more cost effective to improve the reliability and life of Ni/Cd batteries than to try to replace them with high energy per lb Ni/H2 batteries.
