Abstract : This invention relates in general to a lithium electrochemical cell and in particular, to a lithium electrochemical cell including lithium as the anode, non-stoichiometric (ns)-V6013 as the cathode, and a solution of lithium salt in a mixed organic solvent of a non-aqueous aprotic solvent and a dialkyl carbonate as the electrolyte. The general object of this invention is to provide an improved lithium electrochemical cell including ns-V6013 as the cathode active material. A more particular object of the invention is to provide an intercalating solvent system for ns-V6013 that produces high energy lithium cells.
