How to carry lithium batteries when traveling by plane?

Instructions for carrying lithium batteries on airplanes:
With airplanes becoming an important choice for people's transportation, the safety of airplane travel has become very important. When people travel by plane, they inevitably carry devices with built-in lithium batteries such as digital cameras, mobile phones, cameras, laptops, tablets, etc. There are some precautions for carrying devices containing lithium batteries, which are listed for reference:
Before boarding, please confirm the specifications marked on the lithium battery. Lithium battery specifications are calculated based on rated energy (WH). If the rated energy is not marked, please calculate it using the following formula: rated energy (WH)=battery capacity (Ah) X nominal voltage (V)
2. Please note that spare batteries are not allowed to be placed in checked baggage. Please carry it with you in your suitcase.
3. Lithium batteries with a capacity not exceeding 100Wh do not need to be declared. Cameras, computers, and other equipment can be shipped. But a certain amount of spare batteries can only be carried in a portable suitcase.
If the specification of lithium batteries in the equipment is greater than 100Wh but less than 160Wh, they should be declared to the airline and approved by the airline before being carried on board. This specification of lithium battery or backup lithium battery cannot exceed 2 pieces.
5. It is prohibited to check in or carry lithium batteries exceeding 160Wh or backup lithium batteries in hand luggage. If carrying lithium batteries exceeding 160Wh or exceeding self use needs, please declare and consult with the airline for cargo transportation.
During the flight, please turn off the power of the lithium battery device you are carrying and be careful to prevent accidental startup of the device. And take measures such as separate packaging to ensure the electrode protection of individual backup batteries. Prevent self ignition or explosion caused by friction, collision, etc.
