Safer and Flexible Lithium Ion Batteries: Dream or Reality?
M. G. Buonomenna,
Lithium ion batteries are the key components of the portable, entertainment, computing and telecommunication
equipment required by today’s information-rich and mobile society. Highly flexible batteries would free product designers
from the constraints of rigid and predetermined forms. In addition, powerful and light-weight batteries made from
inherently safe materials could facilitate quickly advance development of electric vehicles and other transportation
applications. In this mini-review, some advances on flexible and light-weight batteries are reported and discussed.
Keywords: Lithium ion batteries, Polymers, Polymer membranes, Polymer gel electrolytes, Nanostructured polymer
electrolytes, Conductive polymers.
