Various features of creation of the lithium­-fluorocarbon power sources were considered. The electrochemical characteristics of the electrodes, which were manufactured using various compositions of fluorocarbon and silver vanadate, were studied. It was found that the electrodes based on the mass ratio CFx : SVO 82.5 : 7.5 show the best properties. The composite electrodes have significant advantages in discharge potential, capacity and stability compared with the fluorocarbon ones.
