♦ These batteries are used in most mobile phones, smart phones, tablets, laptops and power banks, and other devices.
♦ Today, most electric vehicles (EVs) also use lithium-ion batteries, but they are gradually reaching their theoretical limit, which can provide approximately 300 watt-hours of electrical energy per kilogram of energy.
