High Energy Primary Batteries

  • Ralph J. Brodd

Abstract

Perhaps we should start by defining what we mean by high energy primary cells. High energy density means different things to different people. Energy density is expressed as the energy per unit volume or the energy per unit weight, and high is a relative term compared to low. For the purpose of this discussion, we will be talking about commercial applications, so that the energy density, watt hours per cu. in., is the most important term. The energy density per unit of weight is of lesser importance for commercial primary batteries. However, given two batteries with the same energy density per unit volume, the choice would be the lighter battery.

Keywords
