Recently, as flexible and wearable electronic devices have become widely popular, research on light weight and large-capacity batteries suitable for powering such devices has been actively conducted. In particular, graphene has attracted considerable attention from researchers in the battery field owing to its good mechanical properties and its applicability in various processes to fabricate electrodes for batteries. Graphene is classified into two types: flake-type, fabricated from graphite, and film-type, synthesized using chemical vapor deposition. The unique processes involved in these two types enable the fabrication of flexible and stretchable batteries with various shapes and functions. In this article, the recent progress in the development of flexible and stretchable batteries based on graphene, as well as its important technical issues are reviewed.
