Lithium-ion Battries 

Lithium-ion Battery is also known as Li-Ion Battery and abbreviated as LIB. These are the type of rechargeable batteries due to which these are commonly used in portable electronics and electronic vehicles. Extending lifetime, increasing energy density, improving safety, reducing cost, and increasing charging speed, are the research areas of the batteries among others.
