Abstract

To meet the rapid development of flexible, portable, and wearable electronic devices, extensive efforts have been devoted to develop matchable energy storage and conversion systems as power sources, such as flexible lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), supercapacitors (SCs), solar cells, fuel cells, etc. Particularly, during recent years, exciting works have been done to explore more suitable and effective electrode/electrolyte materials as well as more preferable cell configuration and structural designs to develop flexible power sources with better electrochemical performance for integration into flexible electronics. An overview is given for these remarkable contributions made by the leading scientists in this important and promising research area. Some perspectives for the future and impacts of flexible energy storage and conversion systems are also proposed.
