    The effect of undesirable phenomenon is defined as `an apparent reduction in capacity to a predetermined discharge voltage cut-off point (usually one volt) resulting from repetitive use patterns'. The suspected cause, and the reasons for its rarity, are explained after a brief discussion identifying the main components within a sintered-plate cell. View full abstract»
