Abstract

Disclosed is the use of a high copper content Cu/Ni alloy (75 percent Cu, 25 percent Ni) for battery terminals. This alloy is easily solderable, is mechanically robust, is chemically inert, and may be used for both the anode and cathode terminals.

      Disclosed is the use of a high copper content Cu/Ni alloy (75
percent Cu, 25 percent Ni) for battery terminals.  This alloy is
easily solderable, is mechanically robust, is chemically inert, and
may be used for both the anode and cathode terminals.

      What is claimed is a battery whose anode and/or cathode
terminals may be made of an alloy consisting of 75 percent copper and
25 percent nickel.  Alternatively, variations that may be used are:
Monel 450 also known as Cupro or Alloy 715 (70 percent copper and 30
percent nickel); or Ferry Metal (55 percent copper and 45 percent
nickel).
