We are a global company employing people from 49 countries; 32 percent of our workforce are women (including 23 percent of our engineers and managers). We are the producer of choice for some of the world’s most demanding customers and our batteries, systems and solutions make a difference across a broad range of market sectors.

Saft is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Total.


Saft’s LS and LSH cylindrical primary lithium cells ranges, all based on Lithium-Thionyl chloride (Li-SOCl2) chemistry perfectly suit high-energy and high-voltage requirements in a wide range of temperatures.

The bobbin construction of the LS range enables the maximum loading of active materials and the correspondingly maximum energy. With its remarkably low self-discharge, it perfectly matches long-term (from five to 20 years plus) applications featuring a few µA base currents and periodic pulses, typically in the 5-150 mA range.

The LSH range has a spiral construction and includes specific models that can operate at the very high temperatures found in oil and gas applications, for example. The cells are designed for applications requiring pulses as high as 4 A.

Features & Benefits

  • High operating voltage, stable during most of the application lifetime
  • Highest energy density among primary lithium chemistriesullet point 1
  • Lowest self-discharge for extended shelf and operating life
  • High pulse capability, thanks to well-controlled passivation with limited voltage delay
  • Excellent reliability over extended operating life
  • 20 year+ design with best quality components and materials
  • Wide operating temperature range, matching all environment conditions
  • Up to 40 years of mass production, with fully automated process

The Saft LM/M cylindrical primary lithium cells are based on lithium-manganese dioxide (Li-MnO2) chemistry. They feature high surface area spiral electrodes for high power and maximum current pulse capability and an electrolyte formula for excellent performance in low temepratures. They are designed specifically for applications featuring continuous currents in the 0.1-5A range, with superimposed pulses as high as 5A. They deliver minimal voltage delay, even after long-term storage in uncontrolled temperature environments.
