Abstract:

Lithium Thionyl Chloride Batteries were investigated for three potential applications and their performance measured under simulated loads. The problem of passivation during storage was investigated and additions of 5 weight percent sulfur dioxide was found beneficial in reducing the effects of passivation. Some preliminary capacity retention and safety data were generated. Three sizes of cells 1.6, 165, and 350 ampere hours were fabricated and tested. Performance was 130 watt hourslb and 11.8 watt hourscu in. for the 1.6 Ah cells. The large 531 ampere hour cells delivered over 280 Whlb and 19 Whcu in. Some information was generated on the nature of the film formed on the lithium electrode during storage. Author
