Default Battery technology

https://www.army.mil/article/221700/

Claimed capacity figures equate to approx. 1.6kj/g energy density. Compare to TNT at approximately 4.2kj/g. 40g (approximately the weight per round of a 7.62mm bullet including magazine) is about 65kj. Some quick and dirty maths suggests that this could vapourise 1 mol of water and expand it to about 0.05m3, which is a pretty decent steam explosion.

Note that assumes a 100% conversion efficiency in a hypothetical energy weapon. However, it does suggest that this energy density is enough to power a man-portable energy weapon if such a technology was developed.
