Is charging our phone batteries electrolysis or a galvanic example? Can someone provide an example of electrolysis and an example of a galvanic reaction?

Phone batteries are more complex than the examples we've been using. While a lithium-ion battery is charging, it can be considered an electrolytic cell.

A non-rechargeable battery is an example of galvanic cell
