Abstract : The patent discloses batteries in which the cathodes are electronically conducting lamellar compounds of graphite. Fabrication is carried out by preparing a discharged battery having a reinforced pyrolytic graphite cathode, a nonwoven polypropylene cloth separator, an anode substrate and an electrolyte solution of a suitable lithium salt in either dimethyl sulfite or propylene carbonate between the cathode and anode and then charging the battery to cause an electronically conducting lamellar compound of graphite to be formed as the cathode and lithium to be precipitated as the anode on the anode substrate.
