The battery is a galvanic cell, an electrochemical cell that derives electrical energy from spontaneous redox reactions taking place within the cell. Each cell contains a positive terminal, or cathode, and a negative terminal, or anode. Electrolytes allow ions to move between the electrodes and terminals, which allows current to flow out of the battery to perform work.
Lithium batteries have lithium metal or lithium compounds as an anode in the battery. The most common type of lithium cell used in consumer applications uses metallic lithium as anode and manganese dioxide as cathode, with a salt of lithium dissolved in an organic solvent.
