Abstract Close to converged energies and expectation values for e+ Li are computed using a ground state wave function consisting of 1200 explicitly correlated Gaussians. The best estimate of the e+ Li energy was -7.532 895 5 hartree which has a binding energy of 0.002 482 hartree against dissociation into Ps+ Li+ . The 2γ annihilation rate for the spin singlet state was 6.996× 109 s-1 . The annihilation rate for the triplet state, taking into account core annihilation and the 3γ decay, was 9.36× 106 s-1 .
