What are Mobile/Laptop batteries and chargers?

Laptop Battery - A hardware component that supplies power to a device, enabling that device to work without a power cord. Laptop batteries are often capable of powering a laptop computer for several hours depending on how much power it requires. Only lithium ion batteries are part of these certification requirements.

Laptop Charger/Power Adapter - A power supply for electronic devices. Also called an “AC adapter” or “charger”, power adapters plug into a wall outlet and convert AC to a single DC voltage. Computers use multiple DC voltages, and the power adapter is the external part of the power supply for a laptop.

Mobile Phone Wall Charger - The wall charger generally has an adapter and is more efficient for charging. Most manufacturers, provide a USB cable and a wall charger with a USB port along with the cell phone. However, among these, the USB cable is not part of these certification requirements.

Mobile Phone Car Charger - A cell phone car charger is a portable device that can be connected to the car's cigarette lighter socket, which contains one or more USB connectors to charge mobile phone or tablets.
