About lithium thionyl chloride cells

Lithium-thionyl chloride (Li-SOCl2) cells have a metallic lithium anode (the lightest of all the metals) and a liquid cathode comprising a porous carbon current collector filled with thionyl chloride (SOCl2). They deliver a voltage of 3.6 V and are cylindrical in shape, come in 1/2AA to D formats, with bobbin construction for prolonged discharge.

Advantages of Li-SOCl2
