Saft LSH20 data sheet.pdf


The Saft LSH20 is a cylindrical primary lithium cell based on Lithium-Thionyl chloride (Li-SOCl2) chemistry and features high surface area spiral electrodes for maximum current capability.

They are designed for applications requiring continuous currents in the 0.1-1.8 A range, with superimposed pulses as high as 4 A.

Construction features:


  • Spirally wound electrodes
  • Stainless steel container
  • Hermetic and sturdy glass-to-metal sealing
  • Built-in safety vents
  • Individual cells with 5.5 A non-resettable fuse
  • Available as individual batteries or multi-cell battery packs

Main applications:

  • Utility metering
  • Automated meter reading
  • Alarms and security wireless devices
  • Mobile asset tracking
  • GPS
  • Emergency location transmitters beacons (ELTs, EPIRBs)
  • Professional electronics
  • Military radiocommunication
  • Sonobuoys
  • Oil exploration
  • Automotive telematics
  • Telemetry


  • High operating voltage, stable during most of the application lifetime
  • Good pulse capability
  • Wide operating temperature range (-60°C to +70°C), +120°C for some cell versions
  • Good resistance to passivation
  • Non-flammable (and non-pressurized at ambient temperature), inorganic (but corrosive) electrolyte
  • Less than 3% capacity loss per year, during storage at ambient temperature before use
  • Performance independent from cell orientation
  • Up to 25 years of mass production experience
  • Compliant with the European directive RoHS
  • Good safety records

Otherwise known as ER34615M.
