The SAFT LM/M cylindrical primary lithium cells are based on lithium-manganese dioxide (Li-MnO2) chemistry. They feature high surface area spiral electrodes for maximum current pulse capability and an electrolyte formula for excellent performance in the cold. They are designed specifically for applications featuring continuous currents in the 0.1-5 A range, with superimposed pulses as high as 5 A. They deliver minimal voltage delay, even after long-term storage in uncontrolled temperature environments.

  • High voltage, stable throughout the application lifetime
  • Excellent resistance to passivation, even after long-term storage in uncontrolled temperature environments
  • Safe and reliable high-power performance in potentially explosive atmospheres ATEX (C- and D-size EX cells)
  • Wide operating temperature range (-40°C to +70°C)
  • Low self-discharge compatible with long shelf life and long operating life
  • High capacities at high currrents
  • Released capacity independent of the cells orientation
  • Excellent safety record


  • Nominal voltage: 3.0 V
  • Spiral construction
  • Cylindrical format: 1/3A to DD
  • Capacity range: 0.5 Ah to 33.0 Ah
  • Operating temperature: - 40°C to + 70°C
  • Ex cells compliant with IEC60079-11 Intrinsic Safety for ATEX applications (EC type certification)
  • Non-corrosive electrolyte

Compliance with the European directive RoHS
