Solid electrolyte lithium cells

Several solids, such as lithium iodide, are electronic insulators but reasonably good ionic conductors and can be used as the electrolyte in solid electrolyte batteries. Such batteries are characterized by extremely long service life at low drain currents, even at high temperatures. They are eminently suitable for applications such as heart pacemakers, and for preserving volatile computer memory.
