Defined narrowly, the lithium-ion battery (LIB) is “a secondary battery using nonaqueous electrolyte with carbonaceous material as a negative electrode and a metal oxide compound containing lithium (usually LiCoO 2) as a positive electrode [ 1].” The LIB’s electrochemical system is shown in Fig. 1.
