Title: Containers for use in a self supporting assembly

Abstract

This invention is directed to a container having side walls and end walls forming a body having a generally rectangular cross-section. Means for restraining lateral and rotational movement of the container relative to an adjacent container while allowing relatively unhindered movement perpendicular to the side walls is also included. The lateral and rotational movement is restrained in a plane parallel to the side walls. The means include a projection connected to at least one of the side walls and extending outwardly therefrom to engage the adjacent container. Also part of this invention is an assembly of containers which includes a plurality of the above described containers arranged side by side with the end walls generally coplanar and the side walls generally parallel. Means for restraining movement perpendicular to the side walls of the plurality of containers is also included. Each of the containers may house a plurality of battery electrodes.
