Primary Lithium thionyl chloride Battery AA Size 3.6V 2400 mAh?
« on: September 04, 2007, 12:40:50 AM »
Has anyone tried using Lithium thionyl chloride AA Size 3.6V 2400 mAh Batteries?

like these: http://www.batteryspace.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=1617


My only concern is that dispite the high mAh rating they seem to be listed as for "low power items over a long period of time".

The still confused by all this electrical stuff...

Looks interesting.

I might think about getting some of these as a backup for my Ultrasaber, assuming Ultra gives them the okay....

 AA Size 3.6V 2400 mAh (ER14505) Primary Lithium thionyl chloride Battery (non Rechargeable)

Unless being non rechargeable doesn't matter to you...

Yup... non-rechargable is fine... just interested in knowing if these would be a viable power option and if anyone has tried using them.

What you whant is high mah ratings on battery packs. that determs run times.

This is what I've thought, but people keep warning me about some of these batteries that they have "misleading" mAh values.  I've not found this to be true yet with my 9v Lithium, but I've not begun using it to drive a lux... only the driver, sound, and aux leds... but it seems very happy.

I've just been curious if anyone has tried to investigated these Lithium's and if they are true to the mAh values for reference.

"Max. Continuous current: 100mA Max "

These won't do well for Luxeons.

AH!!! This is the info that doesn't seem to be documented for us non-electric idiots. :)

So... What IS a good Max Continuous current rating then?

Thanks for that info.

I wish these things were clearly posted around the net for people doing electrics projects.  I guess people just assume you are going to use a "stock" battery and not look for something different.

Battery Space just wants to sell you batteries  :-\

However, the builders in this forum are more than happy to share their knowledge with you.

Even high power Lithium thionyl chloride "M"series batteries that "say" they put out 1 amp  ::)
they don't work well enough, so don't waist your money on them.

however they are supposedly good to power a computer clock or memory back up for 10 years or more :D
