Two volts, three plates lead-acid cells with lead-calcium alloys were studied. Pure lead, lead-silver and antimonial lead grids were also included for the purpose of comparison. Except the latter alloy, all others showed poor life cycle performance. Hence to improve the cycle life of lead-calcium alloy cells, additives like antimony sulphate to the positive active material and phosphoric acid to the electrolyte were added separately and in combination. The performance with the additives was equivalent to that of the lead- antimony alloy cells
