What is a Prismatic Battery ?

Prismatic batteries are batteries which are shaped in a rectangular or a square format.  These batteries are thin and are thus ideal for mobile phones and laptops.  

In prismatic batteries, the anode and the cathode are made in the form of sheets with the separator sheet between them.   Prismatic batteries are being made with higher power ratings aimed at the hybrid vehicle market.  They are, however, less efficient than the cylindrical battery.
