'[EE]: Radio Shack's Energizer 1.5-volt AA-size lit'

   Radio Shack sells a lithium battery (Cat.#23-664) that is AA size and
puts out 1.5 volts.  How do they do that with lithium?

Different chemistry. It's not a 3V cell with voltage drop diode.

AFAIK lithium chemistry is 3V.  How did you manage to pry this info out of
Radio Shack?

It *may* be a catalog misprint *if*and only
if that was the only source of information ...

I have nothing substantive to contribute save
the above and this: A mistake cannot be ruled out
as a chemist/physicists/engineers probably did not
write the 'copy' in this catalog and I can see some
catalog designer seeing "AA" and assuming "1.5V".

It's not a misprint.

Gentlemen, if you will go to: http://data.energizer.com/

and look for the L-91 you will find some fairly sparse technical data on
their
"1.5V" lithium AA cell.

No typical open-circuit voltage given, but the one I have on my desk
measures about 1.8VDC.

The chemistry is given as Lithium/Iron Disulphide (Li/FeS2) vs.
the more typical Lithium/Maganese Dioxide (Li/MnO2) chemistry.

Electrochemical potentials and all that, from first-year Chemistry.

Best regards,

What's the cufuffel about. Eveready and Duracell have had 1.5V lithium
AA cells for some time now... It is a different chemistry AFAIK...

   AFAIK lithium chemistry is 3V.  How did you manage to pry this
   info out of Radio Shack?

AFAIK, Eveready makes the 1.5V Lithium AA cell (2900mAh) and there is data
on their website:

http://data.energizer.com/datasheets/library/primary/lithium/l91.pdf

There are a bunch of different Lithium chemistries.  Your common 3V
batterties are Li/MnO2.  The 3.6V cells commonly used in memory backup
applications are Li/thionyl chloride (Tadarian/etc.)  Li/Ion batteries are
somewhat proprietary still, but use things like lithium cobalt oxide and
provide about 4.1V when fresh.  The 1.5V chemistry seems to be Li/FeS2
