Hey im hoping this is the right place to discuss this.
Im currently working with Lithium Thionyl Chloride Bobbin Cells and was wondering what the impact of temperature is on these batteries? Ive noticed on our suppliers datasheet that low temps = less capacity as expected. But if our temperature fluctuates because we are outdoors, do we loose some capacity forever after a cold snap? if we load the battery while its cold is it drawing more current and therefore loosing more capacity per unit time than when warm or is it draining the same amount so that when it warms back up we are back to 100% rated capacity? and if cold capacity is say 50% of rated and ive already drained 50% capacity while warm, does that mean my battery instantly dies when it reaches its cold temp?
any info on this subject would be much appreciated!
