Double C 3.6 volt lithium battery

Because non-rechargeable lithium batteries have over twice the voltage of alkalines we created a "Double C", a single cell twice as long as an alkaline C cell with 3.6 volts. This battery replaces two C cells in series. For systems that cannot accept the higher voltage of 3.6 volts we offer the 3.0 volt lithium manganese type cells.

  • From 2.2 to 6 times the capacity of two C cells in series
  • Much better voltage hold-up during discharge
  • Extremely long shelf life--up to 20 years
  • Welded steel shell, cannot leak
  • We have sold over 2000 cells for this application and have many happy repeat customers

  • Peak currents are not as high as alkaline C cells, but are great for most purposes such as trenchless transmitters.
  • Cannot be charged under any circumstances without danger of explosion.
  • For use in pairs to power "4 alkaline cell" systems use the PowerStream exclusive DoubleC-CR which is a 3 volt chemistry. Trenchless transmitters may not accept the higher voltage 3.6 volt cells when used in pairs, so this is the perfect cell for 4 cell systems.
