Research and Development on Lithium-nickel Fluoride Batteries for Mine Life Support Equipment.
For Reference Only At Bureau Libraries :94 pages
This final report describes the work performed by gulton battery corporation on lithium-nickel fluoride batteries for mine life support equipment. The lithium-nickel fluoride couple was chosen for this investigation because of its high theoretical energy density, its ability to operate at ambient temperature, and the fact that it showed promise as a secondary system. The theoretical energy density of the lithium-nickel fluoride couple is ten times greater than that of the widely used lead-acid battery and three times greater than the silver-zinc battery which has the highest theoretical energy density of the commercially available secondary systems.
