What is the difference between Lithium batteries and Lithium Ion batteries?

A:There are several important differences.

The practical difference between Lithium batteries and Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries is that

 most Lithium batteries are not rechargeable but Li-ion batteries are rechargeable.

From a chemical standpoint Lithium batteries use lithium in its pure metallic form.

Li-ion batteries use lithium compounds which are much more stable than the elemental lithium used in lithium batteries.

A lithium battery should never be recharged while lithium-ion batteries are designed to be recharged hundreds of times.
