Abstract:

In recent years there has been considerable research and development on ambient temperature, high energy density lithium cells. A particularly promising system is based on thionyl chloride, SOCl2. In this case, SOCl2 serves both as solvent and depolarizer for the cell. D cells have delivered 100 Whrlb and 40 Wlb at the 2.5 hr rate and, as usual, have delivered higher energy densities at slower discharge rates. The purpose of the present program is to study the feasibility of an all-inorganic electrolyte lithium primary battery operable and storable over the temperature range of -40 F to 160 F. The desired energy density is 150 watt-hours per pound of total battery weight and the desired power density is 50 watts per pound.
