I appriciate your quick response but there is an inconsitency between the data on the LG.com site in the Sprint site documention. I'm still hoping that the Sprint docs are the ones that are wrong becuase the Li-Polymer battery is one of the major features of the Optimus G, or at least I thought it was.
Please refer to the LG web site and click on the Sprint tab here: http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/optimusg/index-sprint.jsp
In case that does not work for you here is th edirect link to the PDF for the Sprint Spec sheet (note: this files is uniuqe for Sprint and not a copy of the AT&T PDF.) : http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/optimusg/eSpecSheet_LG_Optimus_G_Sprint.pdf
Since Sprints data and LG data are both from legit sources then one or the other source has typos. Which docs are correct?
A member of our Product Development Team provided some clarification on this and did confirm it is a Lithium Ion Polymer battery. We will be submitting corrections to the information soon, thank you for bringing this to our attention.
It's almost certainly a Lithium Polymer battery (cell?)
That article is a little dated, I've worked with LIPO cells that were 0.009" thick.
CoolDave thanks for you additional data and link because it halps me better understand or confirm Shane_M's answer: your article confirms for me that "Lithuim Ion Polymer" is a correct description of the battery technology.
