The cell type selection is determined by the required discharge rates
- cells of all types (KPL, KGL, KPM, KPH) provide the full delivery of the nominal capacity at 0,2 Cn discharge current during 5 hours to the cell voltage 1,0 V, if the discharge current is increasing, the output capacity will be decreasing;
- the cells of KPL and KGL types are designed for the long discharge rate at the current to 0,5 Cn;
- the cells of KPM types are designed for the medium discharge rates at the current to 1,0 Cn;
- the cells of KPH types are designed for the high discharge rates at the current to 5,0 Cn, in the pulsed mode — at the current to15 Cn, , under the drop in voltage to 0,65 V on cell.
