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.
