How should I carry lithium batteries when traveling by plane?

Instructions for carrying lithium batteries on airplanes:
As airplanes become an important choice for people to travel, airplane travel safety is very important. When people travel by aircraft, they inevitably carry digital cameras, mobile phones, camcorders, laptops, tablets and other devices with built-in lithium batteries. There are some precautions regarding carrying these devices containing lithium batteries, which are listed here for your reference:
1. Please confirm the specifications marked on the lithium battery before taking a flight. Lithium battery specifications are calculated in rated energy (WH). If the rated energy is not marked, please calculate it with the following formula: rated energy (WH) = battery capacity (Ah) X nominal voltage (V)
2. Please note that spare batteries are not allowed in checked baggage. Please put it in your carry-on suitcase and take it with you.
3. Lithium batteries not exceeding 100Wh do not need to be declared. Cameras, computers and other equipment can be checked in. However, a certain number of spare batteries can only be carried in carry-on luggage.
4. If the lithium battery in the equipment is greater than 100Wh but less than 160Wh, it should be declared to the airline and approved by the airline before registration before it can be carried on board. No more than 2 lithium batteries or spare lithium batteries of this specification can be used.
5. Lithium batteries or spare lithium batteries exceeding 160Wh are prohibited from being checked in or carried in carry-on luggage. If you are carrying lithium batteries exceeding 160Wh or lithium batteries exceeding your own needs, please report it to the airline for consultation before shipping.
6. During the flight, please turn off the power of the lithium battery equipment you carry and be careful to prevent the equipment from starting accidentally. And take measures such as individual packaging to protect the electrodes of individual spare batteries. Prevent friction, collision, etc. from causing spontaneous combustion or explosion.
