Product Spotlight: Lithium Battery for Military/Aerospace

The TLM 1550 high-voltage/high-rate AA-size battery targets applications needing long life and extended storage, such as military/aerospace systems, automatic external defibrillators and other portable medical devices, communications systems, automatic collision-notification systems, wireless sensors, and other telemetric and remote devices.

The battery packs 2 Wh of energy at 4 V and handles up to 15-A pulses with a 5-A continuous discharge. It has a self-discharge rate of less than 3%/yr at room temperature, and a temperature range of –40 to 85°C. The battery has a safe design so it can be shipped as nonhazardous. Additional features include a glassto- metal hermetic seal instead of a crimped elastomer gasket, nontoxic and nonpressurized solvents, and less-reactive anode material.
