Gp 9V Lithium Battery
Gp 9V Lithium Battery
10 Year Smoke Alarm Life
9V LITHIUM SMOKE ALARM BATTERY – TEN YEAR SHELF LIFE
CR9VC1 is the model number for the long-life Smoke Alarm 9-volt battery. The battery encased in an aluminum housing. The aluminum housing reducesthe amount of moisture that can enter the battery over time, which enhances its life. It is also slightly larger than a regular alkaline battery, and may present a tighterfit in a small number of devices with smaller battery compartments that were originally designed to match the dimensions and shape of an alkaline battery, which has more rounded edges.
The CR9VC1 is designed for applications in which the battery must either last a long time, such as in smoke alarms, or where it may be exposed to low temperatures or uncontrolled heat and humidity conditions, such as in electronic parking meters or other outdoor applications such as automatic watering systems and dog training transmitters.

What exactly is lithium? How is it used? Is it safe? Theanswers may be surprising to any-lithium and lithium compounds are used in a large number of products that touch people’s daily lives.
Light, but Tough
Lithium is a naturally occurring element — number three on the Periodic Table, for anyone who remembers high school chemistry. It is mined primarily from brine deposits in the Andes Mountains of South America, and from the ore of a mineral called spodumene in North America and Australia. Lithium can also be extracted from sea water. In all, more than a dozen countries, from Argentina to Zimbabwe, produce over 6,000 tons of lithium compounds each year.
Lithium is the lightest metal — indeed, the lightest solid substance — on earth. It also has the greatest energypotential of any solid. In addition, materials coated with lithium-based compounds can withstand extreme forces and temperatures.
From Batteries . . .
With this unique combination of light weight, high energyand temperature endurance, lithium is an ideal material withwhich to make batteries. 9-volt lithium batteries, for example, last up to four times longer than alkaline 9-volt batteries, and is the only 9-volt battery warranted for ten-year life in critical applications such as smoke alarms.Lithium batteries are also used in search-and-rescue transponders, medical equipment, wireless microphones, and abroad range of other portable electronic devices. The 9-volt lithium battery has even been used to power experiments aboard the space shuttle. Lithium is also the key ingredient in the most common photographic batteries — the kind that power almost all of today’s automatic cameras and flashes. .
. . . to Cookware . . .
The ability of lithium-based compounds to resist extreme forces and temperatures makes lithium a key ingredient in tough, resilient surface coatings. Such coatings have a widevariety of uses, from the most commonplace products to the highest-technology applications. In the kitchen, for example, lithium is found in stovetops and ceramic cookware.In the living room, the glass in color TV tubes contains lithium. Outdoors, lithium compounds are found on the soles of shoes and in photo-chromic eyeglass lenses that get darker when the sun shines. Duffers can thank lithium for helping DuPont™ invent Surlyn™ the “cutproof” golf ball cover. And NASA scientists can count on lithium to help rocket nose cones survive the stratosphere. .
. . . to 7-Up?
Lithium is remarkably versatile. In addition to its industrial uses, it has significant therapeutic value. Back in the 1940’s, the beverage known today as 7-Up was called “Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda” and promised “an abundance of energy, enthusiasm, a clear complexion and shining eyes.” In modern medicine, lithium is the primary treatment for manic depression. Medical research indicates that lithium compounds are effective in treating aggression, alcoholism, epilepsy, premenstrual syndrome, andschizophrenia as well. Combined with other chemicals, lithium also helps keep swimming pools and air conditioners clear of health-threatening bacteria.
Serious About Safety
Because lithium is flammable and requires careful handling, a great deal of planning and technology goes into the safe storage, shipping, recycling, and disposal of the material. For example, waste containing lithium is sealed inreceptacles with nonflammable mineral oil, staged in a secure area away from occupied buildings, and shipped to a licensed disposal facility for incineration. Note: lithium combustion does not release toxic materials into the air.
