DAVID LINDEN has been active in battery research, development, and engineering for more than 50 years. He was Director of the Power Sources Division of the U.S. Army Electronics R&D Command. Many of the batteries and power sources currently in use, including lithium batteries and fuel cells, resulted from R&D programs at that Division. Mr. Linden is now a consultant on the development and application of new primary and rechargeable
batteries. He is a member of national and interntional groups establishing standards for these new technologies.
Detailed information is given on the properties, performance characteristics, and applications of all major battery and fuel cell power sources currently being manufactured. The basic concepts, comparative features, and selection criteria that apply to all battery systems are first discussed. Comprehensive coverage is then given to primary batteries, secondary batteries, advanced secondary batteries, reserve and special batteries, and fuel cells.
