The demands for advanced energy storage devices have dramatically increased during the past years. They are fostered by a variety of different needs in multiple technologies like portable and miniaturized electronics, Internet of Things (IoT), transportation, and reliable power supplies for grid and off-grid needs. These needs are the current driving force to develop energy storage devices, with batteries being the leading player, rooted in the blooming of smart mobile devices developed during the present information revolution. Although LIBs are the critical enabler of the current success of mobile devices, they are quickly becoming one of the major bottlenecks in downscaling of the self-powered microelectronic devices. The battery technology has been unable to keep pace. Advances in materials and manufacturing methods have improved the available energy density and decreased the unit prices. While this is not a problem when scaling upwards, the miniaturization has proven to be much more problematic. As the battery size decreases, inactive components such as the separator or the protective casing become more critical, reducing the volumetric energy density.
