It sounds like most LiMnO2 aren't suitable for outdoor use? Also the ones I am seeing have a very low discharge current rating.

Where are you getting LiSOCl2 batteries with a good current output? Here's one that is under 200mA, may not work for ESP32.

We are currently using FANSO ER26500M in our devices (max continuous current 1500mA). There is also AA-sized FANSO ER14505M (max continuous current 400mA). Try to look for similar products from brands like EVE, Saft, Xeno.

We are sourcing the batteries from https://www.tme.eu/en/
Not sure if they ship to US.
