How lithium batteries work

During charging, lithium ions are driven out of the positive electrode lattice by the electric field, and are inserted into the negative electrode lattice through the electrolyte.

When discharging, the process is exactly the opposite of the return of lithium ions to the positive electrode, and the electrons are recombined with the lithium ions by the external circuit from the external circuit to the positive electrode..
