Lithium Metal Thermal Battery

Lithium Metal Thermal Battery

Operating within a high-temperature range of 350°C to 700°C, this battery employs lithium metal and molten salt electrolytes for rapid electrochemical reactions. The elevated temperature maintains the electrolyte's molten state, facilitating efficient ion transport and rapidly converting stored chemical energy into electricity. With exceptional energy density and extended shelf life, lithium metal thermal batteries are indispensable in applications requiring high power and energy densities. From aerospace to missions, they reliably deliver potent bursts of energy. However, their non-rechargeable nature and stringent operational requirements necessitate meticulous handling and maintenance. Utilizing lithium metal as an electrode and incorporating refined thermal regulation mechanisms is tailored for demanding aerospace and needs.
