The Saft LS14500 lithium 3.6V cell is a long life choice for the Shearwater Research dive computers and controllers, among others. Saft batteries are particularly recommended for cold water diving, where their lithium chemistry will significantly outperform alkaline and rechargeable. In the Shearwater Perdix, the battery life of the Saft battery is typically 130 hours of diving at medium brightness offering performance under the widest conditions with the longest service life. Saft is the world leader in the manufacture of primary lithium batteries. Rated at 2.45 Ah, the LS14500 is UL Recognized, and its R6/AA size has no transport restrictions.
Note this is a primary lithium chloride (Li-SOCl2) chemistry battery, NOT a rechargeable lithium-ion chemistry, and thus does NOT have the safety concerns of the lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.
