Title: Recent Advances in Flexible Zinc-Based Rechargeable Batteries

Abstract

Flexible Zn-based batteries are regarded as promising alternatives to flexible lithium-ion batteries for wearable electronics owing to the natural advantages of zinc, such as environmental friendliness and low cost. In the past few years, flexible Zn-based batteries have been studied intensively and exciting achievements have been obtained in this field. However, the development of flexible Zn-based batteries is still at an early stage. The challenges of developing flexible lithium-ion batteries are presented here. Then, a brief overview of recent progress in flexible zinc secondary batteries from the perspective of advanced materials and some issues that remain to be addressed are discussed.
