Lithium Thionyl Chloride Batteries Can still Be Used for Their Intended Purpose After Ten Years.

After 10 years, lithium thionyl chloride batteries can still be utilized for their intended purpose.

It is possible to use lithium thionyl chloride batteries for a period of ten years while consuming a little amount of power. These batteries were developed to monitor a large number of devices that are connected to the main power supply for wireless communication. Over the course of a few years, the majority of batteries will degrade on their own without any load, rendering them completely unusable.

Currently, batteries are the source of power for wireless sensor networks. Temperature and other environmental data can be wirelessly transmitted through wireless sensor networks, which are used to distribute sensors across a large region. This makes lithium thionyl chloride batteries the best option for acquisition equipment because they do not need to be replaced when they are used as a source of power.

When it comes to performance, the internal structure of a lithium thionyl chloride battery is what ultimately determines its performance.

In most cases, an electric current is produced by a battery by means of the attachment of a load and the movement of electrons from the negative electrodes to the positive electrodes respectively. In lithium thionyl chloride batteries, the electrons that are produced within the negative electrode as a result of the ionization of lithium (Li) travel through the load and arrive at the positive electrode. This interaction results in the formation of lithium chloride (LiCl, S, SO2), which is formed when sulfuryl chloride (SOCl2), which is receiving electrons at the positive electrode, interacts with lithium ions. A membrane that is placed between the positive and negative poles allows lithium ions to move from pole to pole as a consequence of this. In other words, the energy that is stored in the lithium thionyl chloride battery is derived from the chemical energy that is generated as a result of the chemical interaction that takes place between lithium and thionyl chloride, which forms lithium chloride.


Up until the very end, the output voltage is maintained at 3.6 volts and does not change!

In comparison to other commercially available disposable batteries, the lithium thionyl chloride battery has the greatest output voltage (nominal voltage) on the market, which is 3.6V. In spite of the fact that it continues to discharge, it is still able to maintain a steady voltage until it discharges completely. When building the power supply, it is necessary to take into consideration the fact that it is difficult to obtain a large current from such batteries, and that the voltage drops during the brief period of time when the current is initially passing through the battery.

Which types of lithium thionyl chloride batteries are there to choose from?What are the primary applications of it?

Various Subjects / Written by Louis Ellis

An in-depth discussion of the lithium thionyl chloride battery is presented here:

The lithium thionyl chloride battery has a rated voltage of 3.6V, and its working voltage varies depending on the load. In general, the working voltage ranges between 3.0V and 3.6V, making it the single battery with the greatest voltage of all single batteries at the moment. With a mass specific energy of up to 500 watt-hours per kilogramme and a volume specific energy of up to 1000 watt-hours per liter, this battery is the most powerful of all the batteries now available.

It is possible to categorize it into three distinct types based on its application: the capacity type, the power type, and the high temperature type.

Batteries made of lithium thionyl chloride are particularly well-suited for discharges that last for an extended period of time. The load voltage is quite stable, and more than 90 percent of the capacity may be discharged, even when the voltage is virtually always at a high platform.

The annual self-discharge rate of the battery is less than 1% at room temperature, and the storage life can be up to 15 years below 35 degrees Celsius. Lithium thionyl chloride batteries can be used in environments that are extremely harsh. Conventional batteries can be used in environments ranging from -55 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius, while special batteries can be used in environments up to 150 degrees Celsius.

Principal applications:

It is possible to use lithium sulfuryl chloride batteries in a variety of applications, the most common of which are smart card meters (water, electricity, and gas meters), computer support power supply, medical equipment, wireless communication, oil drilling, portable communication equipment, scientific research instruments, remote control data acquisition system, special applications, and other electric equipment.
