These robust batteries can be modified to operate in the cold medical chain, where wireless sensors must endure temperatures as low as -80°C. Examples are in the transportation of medical tissue, pharmaceuticals and organs. They can also tolerate high temperatures of up to 125°. This may be required where electronics are used in hot and challenging environments.

Lithium Thionyl Chloride – Li-SOCl₂ lithium thionyl chloride (Li/SOCl2) cells feature greater energy density, up to 710 Wh/Kg, and 1420 Wh/I.
