Is there a difference between lithium-ion batteries and lithium battery cells?

Lithium ion batteries are mainly composed of two large parts, the battery cell and the protective board (PCM). The protective board is mainly composed of a protective chip (or management chip), MOS tubes, resistors, capacitors, and PCB boards; The battery cell is equivalent to the heart of a lithium-ion battery, and the management system is equivalent to the brain of a lithium-ion battery. The battery cell is mainly composed of positive electrode material, negative electrode material, electrolyte, separator, and outer shell. Lithium battery cells are an important component of lithium-ion battery components.
Lithium ion batteries are semi-finished products and cannot be directly used as batteries. They only provide power and need to be equipped with a protective circuit, combined with the outer packaging to form a finished lithium-ion battery.
Lithium ion batteries are a type of battery that uses lithium metal or lithium alloy as the negative electrode material and non-aqueous electrolyte solutions. Due to the highly reactive chemical properties of lithium metal, the processing, storage, and use of lithium metal have very high environmental requirements. So, lithium-ion batteries have not been applied for a long time. With the development of science and technology, lithium-ion batteries have become mainstream now.
Lithium ion batteries can be roughly divided into two categories: lithium metal batteries and lithium-ion batteries. Lithium ion batteries do not contain metallic lithium and are rechargeable. The fifth generation product of rechargeable batteries, lithium metal batteries, was born in 1996. Their safety, specific capacity, self discharge rate, and cost-effectiveness are all superior to lithium-ion batteries.

In 1912, lithium-metal batteries were first developed by Gilbert N Lewis proposed and studied. In the 1970s, M S. Whittingham proposed and began researching lithium-ion batteries. Due to the highly reactive chemical properties of lithium metal, the processing, storage, and use of lithium metal have very high environmental requirements. With the development of science and technology, lithium-ion batteries have become mainstream now.

Due to its own high-tech requirements, only a few companies from different countries are currently producing this type of lithium metal battery.
