Same is true of lithium. The prohibited quantities are very high, something on the order 300 W-H total batteries, with no battery bigger than 100 W-H. That's 25 DSLR batteries, or 6 high-capacity laptop batteries.

Those size limits are for carry-on. Lithium batteries of any kind cannot be left in checked luggage unless installed in equipment. Spares must be in carry-on. This requirement is to allow the flight crew to quickly notice and handle any problems that might result.

See the first paragraph on this page:
