    “Li ion” is an abbreviation for “Lithium-ion”. “Li” is the chemical symbol for lithium, which is a metal with atomic number 3. “Ion” refers to an atom or molecule that has an electric charge, either positive or negative, due to the loss or gain of one or more electrons.

    Lithium-ion batteries use lithium ions as the charge carriers between the anode and cathode, allowing for the battery to be rechargeable. The lithium ions move from the cathode to the anode during discharge and from the anode to the cathode during charging. This movement of ions is what allows the battery to store and release electrical energy.
