4.3. (Class B) One or two person portable: A Field Day station set up and operated by no more than two persons. Other provisions are the same for Class A except it is not eligible for a GOTA or free VHF station. One and two person Class B entries will be listed separately.

4.4. (Class B - Battery) One or two person portable: A Field Day station set up and operated by no more than two persons. All contacts must be made using an output power of 5 Watts or less and the power source must be something other than commercial mains or motor-driven generator. Other provisions are the same for Class A except it is not eligible for a GOTA or free VHF station. One and two person Class B - Battery entries will be listed separately.

1. When running as (Class 1B - Battery) do you say the word "Battery" on SSB for 1B - Battery? On CW?
2. Can 2 people run (Class 1B) in the daytime with 50 watts
and (Class 1B - Battery) at night with 5 watts? or is that considered a separate entry?

1) no need to say "battery". You will specify power source when you submit your entry.

2) The same station cannot submit two FD entries. You would only file as "Battery" if ALL of your contacts were made using battery power. Likewise, you can only claim the 5W power multiplier if ALL your contacts are made at 5W or less.
