The conventional lead-acid batteries contain antimony as the alloying element that poisons the negative plate thereby facilitating premature evolution of hydrogen gas from the surface of the negative plate requiring periodical maintenance by way of adding distilled H2O. In order to eliminate these effects, either low antimony-low cadmium or antimony free alloys are employed resulting in low maintenance or maintenance-free batteries that are presently in use in large quantities for various applications. In this paper, the authors compare the performance of flooded lead-acid cells with grid substrates containing Pb-low Sb-low Cd, Pb-Ca and a combination of both for positive and negative plates by subjecting the assembled cells at 5 hr discharge rates at different temperatures
