The basic fabrication of a printable battery includes electode formation and battery packaging. Here I use a Li-ion battery as an example. The first step is the electode fabrication, which includes slurry preparation, coating, cutting of electrode, electrode calendaring, electrode slitting, and t...

For our printable robots, we are planning to integrate printed battery as on-baord power. Currently, we choose Na-ion battery given the relative high voltage, low resistance, low cost, and high drain current, etc. There are two main types of Na-ion battery, i.e. sodium/sulfur battery and sodium/meta...
