Long life 3.6 V lithium thionyl chloride cells are capable of delivering continuous around-the-clock power for 20+ years in temperatures as low as -80°C. Currently utilized in data loggers and sensors, these batteries provide power to ensure a continuous data stream to verify that consistent temperatures have been maintained in order to preserve tissue samples, transplant organs, and pharmaceuticals that are frozen or packed in dry ice. Batteries modified for the medical cold chain are available in 1/2 AA, 2/3 AA, AA, C, D, and DD cylindrical cells, as well as wafer cells and battery packs.
