lithium polymer

A rechargeable battery technology introduced in the late 1990s that stores less energy per pound than lithium ion, but is more flexible. Lithium polymer (Li-Po) uses a gelatinous electrolyte rather than liquid. Instead of requiring a steel can, lithium polymer cells can be manufactured in thin, pliable shapes and custom sizes for special requirements. See lithium ion and batteries.
