Product and Services


Saft manufactures three different battery chemistries of non rechargeable primary technologies:

  • Lithium-thionyl chloride (Li-SOCl2) in LS/LSG/LSH/LST 3.6 V cells
  • Lithium-sulfur dioxide (Li-SO2) in G/LO 3.0 V cells
  • Lithium-manganese dioxide (Li-MnO2) in LM 3.0 V cells

This unique situation allows Saft to offer metering OEMs tailored energy density, high and stable operating voltage, flexible current capacity, long shelf-life and resistance to extreme temperatures with exceptional standards of reliability and safety.

Saft’s primary lithium cells are manufactured in four sites:

  • Poitiers (F) for Li-SOCl2 batteries of the LS and LSH ranges
  • Zhuhai (China) for LSG batteries
  • South Shields (UK) for Li-SOCl2, Li-SO2 technologies of the LST and LO ranges
  • Valdese (USA) for Li-SO2 and Li-MnO2 technologies of the G and LM ranges
