What is a Lithium-Ion battery made of?

In order to understand what a Lithium-Ion battery is, we need to understand what it has under the hood. The Li-Ion battery contains two electrodes inside with one being positively charged cathode and the other being negatively charged anode. These are separated by a thin sheet of microperferated plastic that prevents these two from touching each other.

When you are charging your device, the Lithium ions are pushed by electricity from the cathode. These are pushed through the microperferations in the separator along with electrically conductive fluid to the anode. On the other hand, when the battery is discharging then the opposite happens with the Lithium ions flowing from anode to the cathode. Smartphones have a single lithium-ion cell and those used in laptops have between 6-12 lithium-ion cells. You can connect with the Kaspersky Technical Support experts to know more about how these functions to provide the necessary juice to your smartphone or laptop.
