 (April 2004) Lithium AAAs Really Keep On Going
New Energizer e2 AAA cells have 1.5 Volts/cell and shelf life of 15 years. The cells which are lighter than Alkaline cells will operate with temperatures from -40 0F to + 140 0F. It is estimated that the cells will give 160 more hours of pager operation and will give 400 more flashes in a camera. Availability is to be in the second half of 2004.

(September 2002)Lithium Batteries Boost Power, Expand Temperature Ranges
Designed for the extended requirements of tire-pressure monitoring systems, the Rayovac BR-ETR provides three times the pulse rate capability of conventional BR batteries and operates from -40 0C to +100 0C. It will withstand temperatures to 120 0C. Offered in four coin sizes costing from $0.60 to $1.20 each/M, the BR-ETR will provide 10 mA at -40 0C. The Lithium-carbon-monoflouride chemistry is inherently safe and has 10 year shelf life.
