Product Details

RS PRO Pipped Lithium Thionyl Chloride Cells

RS PRO Lithium batteries designed for use in industrial and commercial applications. They are not like typical daily used batteries, they have a nominal voltage rating of 3.6 V designed for use in applications where a device is used for a long period of time such as utility metering, security and alarms.
RS PRO batteries use lithium-thionyl chloride so they have a high energy density, low discharge rate, ideal for lengthy storage periods plus they are fully compliant with IEC60086-4 safety standards.

Why choose these batteries?

• 3.6 V
• Compatible with equipment or instruments designed for this nominal voltage rating

FAQ’s
Are Lithium Batteries Harmful?

Lithium batteries can sometimes leak a substance called potassium hydroxide which is a caustic agent that can cause eye, skin and respiratory irritations. This risk is reduced by not mixing different manufacturer battery types, batteries of different chemistries and by the replacement of all batteries at the same time.

How to dispose of Alkaline/Lithium Batteries?
Recycle responsibly, a wide range of schemes are available.

Safety Advice

Keep out of sight and reach of children

Guidance:
• Always install the batteries correctly as per instruction
• Ensure that the contact points are clean and conductive
• Do not mix different types of battery
• Do not heat or attempt to recharge the battery
• Do not dispose of in a fire

Note

Due to the high terminal voltage 3.6V they are not suitable as replacements for other battery technologies in the same can sizes.
