Presentation Summary

The forthcoming smart electronics/IoT era drives the relentless pursuit of high-performance power sources with various form factors. From a battery design point of view, conventional rechargeable batteries have suffered from lack of variety in design diversity, thus imposing formidable challenges on their integration into electronic devices. Recently, printed batteries have garnered considerable attention as a crispy power source with exceptional form factors, process simplicity and monolithic integration with devices, which lie far beyond those achievable with conventional battery technologies. Here, we overview the current status and future outlook of flexible/wearable power sources, with a particular focus on printed batteries and their potential use in newly emerging electronics.
