As of September of 2009 Saft has combined the LS, LST and LSG cell series and these products will now be labeled as the LS Series. Below is an excerpt from Saft:
"Description of the changes made:
Until now, the small Li-SOCl2 bobbin cells manufactured by Saft were coming with different names and specific technical and commercial documents (datasheets, standard specifications, etc.). As everyone knows:
- the LS cell models (LS 14250, LS14250C, LS 14500, LS14500C), are made in Poitiers-France,
- the LST cell models (LST 14250, LST 14500), are made in South Shields-UK,
- the LSG cell models (LSG 14250, LSG 14500), are made in Zhuhai-China.
After a series of developments, the size and performance of these cell models have been harmonized. They are now interchangeable in dimensions and capacities with 1.2 Ah for the ½ AA cells and 2.6 Ah for the AA cells.
Following this, and starting September 2009, the above T and G suffixes will disappear and the concerned batteries will all bear the same generic LS name.
At the same time, the cells produced in Zhuhai and South Shields will reach nominal capacities of 1.2 Ah and 2.6 Ah . The cells produced in Poitiers have been using this harmonized design since August 2008.
Considering the narrow performances reached between the new generation of the standard cells compared to the C version, the LS 14250 and the LS 14500 cells in their new generation appear as the natural successor of the current C version."
