"The picture in TalkNow! is showing [cylindrical] AA-Batteries that you use in a walkman." [Lieven, 7/31/2013]

All the Enterprise's power is channeled through six fist-sized dilithium crystals.  When they burned out the ship had to rely on battery power, which could not sustain its orbit for more than a day. (TOS "Mudd's Women")

{'aplo'} seems to refer to a small(ish) container (e.g. cassette, case, box, etc.). Examples include {wab qoSta' 'aplo'} [audio] cassette (TNK), {'ul 'aplo'mey} batteries (TNK), {ngaS 'aplo'} contents [i.e. of the Monopoly game box].
