Lithium Thionyl Chloride Battery Specifics

Lithium thionyl chloride (LI-SOCl₂) batteries are a variant of lithium batteries that are commonly found in devices that only need low amounts of power. This is due to their extremely long shelf life, which can last up to 10 years. Unlike lithium-ion batteries, these batteries are not rechargeable.

Lithium thionyl chloride batteries contain a liquid cathode, and are able to sustain extremely low temperatures. You can find higher-current versions of these non-rechargeable batteries in some vehicle and military applications.

Lithium Thionyl Chloride Battery Comparisons

The cells in lithium thionyl chloride batteries have the highest energy density of any form of lithium battery. They also produce limited emissions under abusive conditions, which is an advantage over other battery chemistries that use liquid to produce a gas by-product.

These batteries also exhibit a extremely low self-discharge, usually under 1% a year. This efficiency has made them a popular choice for devices that require only a low, sustainable charge. However, due to their high cost and safety concerns, you will not find these batteries in normal civilian applications. One of the largest safety concerns associated with them is that the battery can explode when shorted.
