Using impedance spectroscopy to assess the degree of discharge of lithium primary (non-rechargeable) batteries produces highly informative results. In order to make the results of impedance spectroscopy more correct, a method is proposed to determine the parameters of preliminary galvanostatic pulse that transfers lithium battery in a reproducible condition, which is largely determined by the state of the passive film of the lithium anode. The proposed technique can be helpful in combination with other methods for diagnostic of lithium batteries.
