Title: Lithium halide primary cell having end of life indicator means

Abstract

The present invention relates to a lithium halide primary cell having means to indicate its end of life. The cell includes at least one lithium anode and a cathode in contact with a major surface of the anode wherein the indicating means comprises a stepped portion on the major surface of said anode which is not in contact with the cathode. The stepped portion of the anode comprises a surface area of from about 40 to 60% of the area of the major surface in contact with the cathode and about 15 to 5% of the total thickness of said anode.
