Apr. 08, 2022 Update Data sheet for high-capacity cylindrical type CR battery “CR17500AU” added
Feb. 17, 2021 News Maxell develops cylindrical type lithium manganese dioxide battery “CR17500AU” with industry’s highest capacity suitable for IoT devices
High energy density
High energy density has been achieved by optimizing the filling rate of the material by means of a unique electrode structure.
Long-term reliability lasting more than 10 years*
The employment of a heat-resistant gasket and a laser-seal structure prevents water intrusion and electrolyte evaporation, ensuring long-term reliability that lasts more than 10 years*. The self-discharge rate is about 0.5% per year.
- Designed lifetime at 20 deg. C when not yet used. Actual lifetime will vary depending on conditions such as discharge current and temperature.
Stable discharge characteristics
The original negative electrode material maintains low internal resistance even at high depths of discharge and ensures stable discharge.
Superior low-temperature characteristics
High safety due to internal short-circuit prevention structure
Supports various package design configurations
Package design proposals are available according to the customer’s needs. We have designed a wide range of packages for 1 to 35 batteries.
35 parallel batteries for outdoor usage

Principle and Reactions
The cylindrical type lithium manganese dioxide battery uses manganese dioxide (MnO2) as its positive active material and lithium (Li) as its negative active material.
|Positive reaction :||MnO2+Li++e- → MnOOLi|
|Negative reaction :||Li → Li++e-|
|Total reaction :||MnO2+Li → MnOOLi|
If misused, this battery may deform, leak (the liquid inside the battery may leak to the outside), generate heat, explode, or ignite.
Since such misuse may cause injury or equipment failure, please be sure to read and observe [Warnings and Cautions].
