Printable batteries, that sounds really very futuristic, but it is not scifi now. Advanced Materials Innovation Center is developing these batteries already. These batteries are based on lithium polymer and they really can be printed. This printable battery is developed to be used with solar batteries or displays and can be also attached to curved surface. Together with solar panel it can be used as power generator and power storage device. Because this battery will be manufactured using technology of printing, it will be possible to reduce the thickness of the battery and its cost since it will be possible to produce it by mass production method.
There will be two types of this battery, 4V and 2V. The batteries with an undisclosed capacity have a thickness of amazing only 500μm. That sounds really like technology of the future.
