All of them belong to the class of thermal batteries (see below). 1. 1. Nickel-Hydrogen Batteries The Ni-H2 cell utilizes H2 as a negative electrode, while the positive electrode is NiOOH. This system has specifically been developed for aerospace applications and has been in continuous development since the early 1970s. 11. Best discharge, charge and storage conditions for the main rechargeable batteries. 25 V. Float charge can be prolonged. Fast charge is not possible. Slow charge: 14 h. Rapid charge: 10 h Constant current, followed by trickle charge.

The anode is Li foil, while the cathode is Teflon-bonded acetylene black. The solvent is CH3CN in which LiBr and SO2 are dissolved. The overall reaction is: 2Li þ 2SO2 ! Li2 S2 O4 Li2S2O4 (Li dithionite) precipitates into the pores of the carbon cathode. The stability of this cell (and of other cells with a soluble cathode) is connected with the formation of a passivating film on the Li surface as soon as Li is exposed to SO2. The film growth rate increases during storage of partially discharged cells.

In this case, safety devices, such as a vent and a fuse are incorporated to prevent accidents stemming from overpressures or short circuits. Overpressure can be reached on overdischarge: the temperature may rise to 115°C and the pressure to 140°psig in cathode-limited cells. In the spirally wound configuration, the energy output is reduced (there is more inactive material inside the cell) and the shelf life is also shortened (the reactivity increases with cathode surface area). Furthermore, the upper limit of the operating temperature range cannot overcome $85°C.
