All-solid-state lithium-ion batteries employing solid-state electrolytes promise higher operational safety, enhanced temperature stability, potentially higher cell voltages, and consequently higher energy density compared to traditional batteries with liquid electrolytes based on flammable organic solvents. We discuss recent advances and challenges on the path towards a competitive high-power all-solid-state battery technology.
