Lithium thionyl chloride (LiSOCl2) batteries are used to power devices working in harsh environmental conditions. These batteries are also used in medical RFID tags that must withstand the prolonged heat of autoclave sterilization cycles, as well as data in loggers that must work continuously in the cold chain. Lithium high energy density is due to its large electric potential, which exceeds that of other metals, and which produces the high voltages typical of lithium batteries. Lithium cells use a nonaqueous electrolyte, which enables certain LiSOCl2 batteries to operate in extreme temperatures. Spiral wound LiSOCl2 cells feature an energy density of 800 Wh/I, a temperature range of 55 to 85C, and a maximum service life of approximately 10 years. While capable of delivering high current pulses, their multiple wound layer design increases surface area, resulting in higher current draw and higher self-discharge than comparable bobbin-type cells, which feature higher energy density, higher capacity, a wider temperature range, and longer service life due to very low self-discharge.

New applications are emerging continuously as RF communications converges with other technologies such as real-time locating systems (RTLS), Wi-Fi, and wireless sensor networks (WSN). Each successive generation of RF device uses smaller form factors yet demands increased power for greater product functionality, creating inherently contradictory design challenges for developing optimized power management solutions. LiSOCl2 cells are constructed two ways: bobbin-type and spiral-wound. Bobbin cells consist of an outer cylinder made of lithium metal and an inner electrode that is reminiscent of a bobbin of thread. Spiral-wound cells use flat sheets of metal wound around a core, providing a large surface area that can create high currents. The greater number of layers within the spiral-wound cell reduces the volume of electrolyte these batteries can hold, whereas bobbin cells can hold more electrolyte, enabling them to deliver about 30% more energy than spiral cells of equivalent size.

Tadiran has developed the TLM series of high-power lithium metal oxide batteries to meet the high-power lithium metal oxide batteries and long-life batteries. The TLM series of high-power lithium metal oxide batteries are being used in a variety of military and aerospace applications. This new generation of high-power lithium batteries is generating significant interest among military and aero design engineers based on performance attributes, such as long shelf life, high-rate power, instantaneous activation, and high survivability in extreme environmental conditions. These batteries use COTS technology to deliver high-current pulses and high-rate energy, with up to 20 years of storage life, due to an annual self-discharge rate of less than 1% per year at room temperature. These cells are available in three standard cylindrical configurations, such as AA-size, CR-2 size, and 20-mm length. Source

A 25-year service life is becoming an international standard for long-term battery performance in wireless sensor applications. However, achieving this milestone is often difficult to prove, because primary (non-rechargeable) lithium batteries cannot be easily tested in conditions that accurately simulate actual in-field use, differentiating superior quality batteries from inferior quality batteries.

Advanced lithium battery chemistries enable self-powered medical devices to become smaller while delivering uncompromised performance. Primary lithium batteries deliver the highest specific energy (energy per unit weight) and energy density (energy per unit volume) of any battery chemistry, with a non-aqueous electrolyte, and a nominal open circuit voltage of 1.7 to 3.9V. BioAccess, a surgical device manufacturer, now offers lithium metal oxide batteries as an optional power supply upgrade for a surgical drill that was previously powered by alkaline battery packs. The alkaline batteries performed well and offered excellent reliability, but added unnecessary weight. Use of the optional lithium metal oxide battery pack enables faster drilling speeds, more active drill time, more instantaneous power, and greater stall torque for more efficient drilling cycles with less operator fatigue. A portable, automatic torque limiting surgical screwdriver by Pro-Dex permits neurosurgeons to insert titanium screws into titanium plates at just the right depth in the skull. Source
