also: Lithium-ion polymer batteries, polymer lithium ion, Li-poly, Li-Pol, LiPo, LIP, PLI or LiP
Rechargeable batteries which have technologically evolved from lithium-ion batteries. Ultimately, the lithium-salt electrolyte is not held in an organic solvent as in the lithium-ion design, but in a solid polymer composite such as polyethylene oxide or polyacrylonitrile. The advantages of Li-poly over the lithium-ion design include lower cost manufacturing and being more robust to physical damage. Lithium-ion polymer batteries started appearing in consumer electronics around 1996.

Full River is one of the pruducer of Lithium Polymer Batteries. You can find it in many online shops for model making and micro electronics.
Tenergy is also a Lithium Polymer battery producer.
Lithium-ion batteries can rupture, ignite, or explode when exposed to high temperature environments e.g. in an area that is prone to prolonged direct sunlight. Short-circuiting a Li-ion battery can cause it to ignite or explode and any attempt to open or modify the casing or circuitry is dangerous.
You need a charger and balancer (it is also called Protection Circuit Module) for Lithium Polymer Batteries to prevent over charge or over discharge. You can buy a LiPo battery with PCB already connected, or already assembled PCB. There are many online shops that sells such product. Here is some example.
