David, i guess you're right here. I haven't ever found a published discharge curve on the AA Lithiums, so I'm in the process of making my own at the moment: though it's still early, the curve looks very flat so far.

I don't know what the chemistry of the Lithium AA is; at 1.5 volts, it can't very well be LiMNO or LiSO (LiMNO is the chemistry used in 3 volt lithium camera batteries). Does anyone know just what the 1.5 volt lithium chemistry is and how (or if) it relates to other lithium batteries?

Richard,

I didn’t realize the 3v button lithiums taper off as much as they do. I was surprised as I figured they were similar to the AA lithium batteries.

Regards,
