- A number of Type HS40-7 sealed silver-zinc cells and experimental 40AH sealed silver-zinc cells were fabricated. Cells of each experimental group contained one variation from the standard configuration (HS40-7) cell. Cells from each of five experimental cell groups and cells of the standard configuration were tested to characterize voltage and capacity performance at various discharge rates. The test cells were then subjected to 100 percent DOD Cycle Life Testing at 22 C. Results indicate that material and/or process variations are available which will improve both performance and cycle life of the existing 40 ampere-hour sealed silver-zinc cell configurations. The average cycle life to 50 percent loss of nominal capacity in cells from two (2) of the experimental groups was 150 - 165 cycles. A series of 12 ampere-hour cells was fabricated and tested as part of a program to incorporate the 40AH sealed silver-zinc cell fabrication technology into a cell of smaller size. Base-line configuration cells and experimental variations were produced using the HS40-7 cell fabrication and processing methods adapted to the smaller cell size.
