[size=+2]UPDATE found my answers with a little bit more searching.[/size]

Was randomly browsing looking at Li-ION cells and came across these. Would like your thoughts?

They're for very long duration of very small discharge.
Capacity loss sets in at 15mA.
At 200mA (0.2A) capacity is reduced to 30% and rated maximum peak current is 0.25A.

Hi RA40,

Questions about 3.6V primary lithium batteries (SAFT, TADIRAN, etc.) are fairly common on the forums. It seems that every new flashaholic eventually encounters them and wants to know how suitable they are for flashlight use. Since you just found some of the info by searching, you could do CPF a big favor by summarizing the info available and providing links to it. :)

Saft's Lithium Sulphur Dioxide (Li SO2) cells are more suitable for flashlights since they can handle higher currents. However they are 3V and have lower capacity.
