Thermal batteries have long shelf-life, short service life and high capacity. They are very reliable. Increasing energy density will allow reducing volume of the batteries. This can be achieved by increase of discharge potential of the batteries via increase in the reduction potential of the cathode. The cathode is based on Li deficient LiMnxMyOz.
- Smaller volume of the batteries
- Cheaper batteries
Applications and Opportunities
- Military: bombs, missiles, ejection chairs, artillery fuses
