Lithium batteries developed by French firm Saft have been instrumental in a moon probe being able to beam information from space four times longer than its original design specification.

A combination of primary and rechargeable lithium batteries developed by the battery design and manufacturing company enabled LuxSpace’s Manfred Moon Memorial Mission (4M) mini-probe to transmit data back to earth.

A battery pack comprising 28 Saft super robust LSH20 HTS 3.6V Primary lithium-thionyl chloride (Li-SOCl2) size D spiral cells delivered 4.5W of power to the 4M probe - the first privately funded moon mission.
