Abstract : The usefulness of tetrahydrofuran (THF) as a cosolvent with 2-methyltetrahydrofuran (2Me-THF)/LiAsF6 for improving the low temperature rate capability of rechargeable Li cells has been explored. Li/TiS2 cells utilizing 2Me-THF/LiAsF6 blended with 15-50 volume-percent THF have shown substantially improved rate characteristics at 0 and -10C. In addition, the Li electrode in such cells has exhibited practically useful cycling efficiencies. (Author)
