Lithium Battery. Increasing my voltage.

My disposable lithium battery has a starting voltage of 3.6V. But, when I connect the battery to my resistor and an LED light, the battery loses voltage. Quite a bit each day I check actually.

Is there any way in which I can attempt to increase the voltage?

Thanks.

But, could that happen? Or am I just confused here?

I always thought voltage could drop continuously. There was an odd singular day where it looks as though my voltage increased due in part to nothing I had attempted. Why might this be the case?

Look at the load through each step. But, remember, the load is not static when an LED is present.

What happens if you change the load of the battery?

The battery will continue to decrease voltage under any load down to a voltage level of the battery open circuit fully discharged level.

For a safer battery consider switching to the Lithium IRON LiFePO4. Commonly called LFP. It has a much flatter discharge curve than other Lithium ION based based batteries.
