Tadiran lithium batteries deliver
PROVEN safety and performance required by
animal tracking devices

Tadiran TLI Series rechargeable batteries can operate for up to 20 years.

Application shown at left is Cattlewatch, a wireless mesh network application that equips cows with remote sensors and then connects to the Iridium satellites so  ranchers can remotely manage their herd.

Animal tracking research demands small, powerful, long-life batteries.


Animals equipped with monitoring devices need to be treated as humanely as possible, so the tracking devices they wear must be designed to be as small and as lightweight as possible to ensure maximum safety and comfort. In many cases, the tracking device is designed to fall off at the conclusion of the research program, so the use of more environmentally friendly batteries is also an important consideration.


Tadiran lithium thionyl chloride (LiSOCl2) batteries have been chosen for animal tracking research programs due to their high capacity and high energy density, which translates into reduced size and weight and the smallest possible footprint. In addition, the fail-safe design and environmentally friendly chemistry utilized by Tadiran batteries provides added safety protection and helps reduce long-term harmful effects on the environment.


Cattle watch units use Tadiran TLI Series rechargeable Li-ion batteries to capture harvested energy.

Tadiran TLI Series rechargeable Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are also utilized to track the location and status of cattle and other domesticated animals. Unlike consumer grade Li-ion batteries, TLI Series batteries can operate for up to 20 years and 5,000 full recharge cycles, with an extended temperature range, and the ability to deliver the high pulses needed to power wireless communications, thus allowing farmers to remotely manage their herds to enhance the safety and well-being of the animals.
