Tadiran introduces a high power lithium battery for military/aerospace applications: a AA-size lithium battery that delivers 15A pulse / 5A continuous discharge.


Port Washington, NY – Tadiran batteries, a leading manufacturer of lithium batteries, has just introduced a new high voltage/high rate AA-sized lithium battery, the TLM 1550. Packing 2Wh of energy at 4.0 volts into a AA-size cell, the TLM 1550 is specifically designed for applications requiring high power, 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, as well as other telemetric and remote devices.


The AA-sized TLM 1550 features an open circuit voltage of 4.0 volt, and the ability to handle pulses of up to 15A, with 5A maximum continuous load. The TLM offers very long life in extreme environmental conditions, including a self-discharge rate of less than 3% per year at room temperature, and a temperature range of (-40°C to +85°C). Product features include:


• High operating voltage (4.0V)

• Wide operating temperature range (-40°C to +85°C)

• Safe design, can be shipped as non-hazardous

• Glass-to-metal hermetical seal (not crimped elastomer gasket)


Tadiran’s TLM 1550 battery is also extremely safe, as its solvents are non-toxic and non-pressurized and its anode material is less reactive than that found in other lithium cells. The battery has performed well in a variety of safety tests, including nail penetration, crush tests, high temperature chambers, short circuit and charge tests.


Tadiran manufactures a complete line of lithium thionyl chloride batteries, including a variety of primary cylindrical batteries, Pulses PlusTM batteries for high current pulse applications, coin-sized cells and custom battery packs. Tadiran products are available in a variety of terminations and assemblies. High temperature and high power models are also available.
