Over the past few decades, portable electronics have been playing a prominent role in daily life, including Micro- Electromechanical Systems (MEMS) and Nano-Electromechanical Systems (NEMS) (Lee et al., 2003; Albano et al., 2007; Muntaser et al., 2015; and Muntaser and Buaossa, 2021). These devices, among many others, require a reliable energy storage and conversion device in order to function properly, the typical device being a battery. Many batteries are available for these applications, but the most promising proves to be Lithium-Ion Batteries (LIBs), mostly due to their ability to provide high voltages and large energy storage densities (Tarascon and Armand, 2010). LIBs have a very wide range of applications, including environment-friendly electric vehicles (Muntaser et al., 2016; and Elwarfalli et al., 2019) and rechargeable phone batteries (Kitaura et al., 2011; Elwarfalli et al., 2016; and Muntaser et al., 2017).


The main advantage of LIBs (Li-ion) is their high energy density. They have a long cycle of life. Li-ion does not suffer from high selfdischarge rate, and memory effect of Nickel-Cadmium (NiCd) and Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries. Unlike Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) and NiCd, LIBs do not contain toxic heavy metals. The main disadvantage of LIBs is that they require careful attention to safety; overcharging, overheating or short-circuiting a charged LIB can result in fire or explosion (Isaacson et al., 2000).
