For a battery to work, it needs an electrolyte to act as a bridge and carry ions from the anode to cathode and back again. However, batteries come in all shapes and sizes, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to battery electrolytes. For example, electric vehicles and "smart" phones are both powered by rechargeable lithium ion batteries, but because the demand on the battery is so different, they require different electrolytes.
