What is a "pile Lithium"?

I have a battery here that is marked as a "ENERGIZER PHOTO E lithium". Another place on the battery it sayes "123 3.0v lithium pile". but nothing about amps. Another place on the battery sayes 2010, I think the "2010" might refere to a part #. It came out of an old Kodak DC20 digital camera. Thare is a label on the camera that sayes 3.0V-----2.7W does that mean anything? Anyway I want to try to use this camera again (it has been on the shelf with the battery in it for about 3 years) the battery still has life in it. It will trun the camera on. My volt meter sayes it has 2.96v. My question is can I recharge this battery on my Triton, not knowing the amp rating for this battery? And what is a "lithium pile"? And what about the 3.0v marking on the battery and the lowest charge voltage I can get on the Triton for a single cell is 3.6?
Thanks for any help
BTW I don't mind "chucking" this battery out. and buying a new one.

Pile is the 1800's name for battery.

No, you cannot charge this type of battery with ANY type charger.
It is a lithium primary battery.

"What's a Pile Lithium" ?? ....... If after you "plop" down hard on the sofa, and later on can't find your battery pack.....you might have one....... and then might need professional medical attention............kw
