Product Details

RS PCB and Radial Mounting Lithium Thionyl Chloride Cells

All cells are hermetically sealed in stainless steel cans (low magnetic signature and superior resistance to atmospheric corrosion)
For series or parallel connections of more than one cell refer to the data sheet - do not solder directly to the cell - used tabbed versions instead.
Operating temperature -60゚C → +85゚C

Main applications:

Utility metering
Automatic meter reading
Alarms and security devices
Tollgate systems
Memory back-up
Tracking systems
Automotive electronics
Professional electronics


Pin arrangement is 2 pin - Positive, 1 pin- Negative
Due to the high terminal voltage 3.6V they are not suitable as direct replacements for other battery technologies in the same can sizes


Compliant with IEC 60086-4 safety standard


  • Fire, explosion and burn hazard
    Do not recharge, short circuit, crush, disassemble, heat above 100゚C (212゚F), incinerate
