Primary Lithium Batteries

At Advanced Battery Systems we carry only high quality market leading products. This stays true with the Primary Lithium batteries we carry. We stock Saft’s primary lithium batteries to provide quick service to our customer base. Saft is the industry leader in manufacturing these cells. They have three distinct technologies which are Lithium-Thionyl Chloride (Li-SOCl2), Lithium-Sulfur Dioxide (Li-SO2), and Lithium-Manganese Dioxide (Li-MnO2). These batteries are made with high quality cell construction out of Saft’s plant in France. These construction features include stainless steel or nickel-plated cans, laser welding & glass-to-metal seals, safety vents (for spiral designs), built-in fuses or PTC (for spiral design), and shutdown separators (for Li-MnO2).

There are 3 models of primary lithium batteries manufactured by Saft. They are:

  • LS/LSH – 3.6 V Lithium-Thionyl Chloride (Li-SOCl2) cells
  • LO/G – 2.8 V Lithium-Sulfur Dioxide (Li-SO2) cells
  • LM/M – 3.0 V Lithium-Manganese Dioxide (Li-MnO2) cells

Below is a list of the features for the Saft Primary Lithium batteries:

  • High and stable operating voltage: Above 3 V for LS/LSH cells and above 2 V for LO/G and LM/M cells
  • Wide range of current capabilities: A few microamperes base current to more than 10 A pulses for some LO/G and LM/M cells
  • Wide range of operating temperatures: – 60°C to + 85°C (+ 150°C for the LSH 20-150)
  • Long Shelf Life: Less than 1 % to maximum 3 % annual capacity loss in storage at + 20°C
  • Extended Operating Life: 5 -20 years depending on the application
  • High energy densities: 3-10 times greater than non-lithium systems
  • Excellent behavior in humid environments: Corrosion-free, hermetically-sealed cans
  • Safety: UL and IEC standards are met and are UN transport certified
