Lithium Thionyl Chloride (LiSOCl2)
LiSOCl2 cells come in a wide range of sizes from ½ AA to D cells. This chemistry offers high energy density (long life) and voltage in a very small format. This disposable (primary) cell is designed for commercial applications for meters, military equipment and some medical equipment. This chemistry is ideal for very low continuous current and/or moderate pulse currents.
a. Two types of lithium thionyl chloride cells are available:
Bobbin Construction: Designed for applications with long operating cycles and low-pulse requirements. Examples include: gas meters.
b. Spiral-Wound Construction: Designed for applications with long operating cycles and high-pulse requirements. Examples include: RF Transmitters.
