With the ever-growing interest in ubiquitous smart electronics and the Internet of Things, the demand for high-energy-density power sources with aesthetic versatility has increased tremendously. High energy density Li-metal batteries have attracted considerable attention for fulfilling the high energy density requirement of smart electronics. To obtain form factor-free Li-metal batteries with both design diversity and electrochemical reliability, printed solid-state electrolytes are required as a key component because of their viability for the printing/solidification-based fabrication process and electrode-customized chemical/physical properties. This review presents an overview of printed solid-state electrolytes for form factor-free Li-metal batteries with a focus on materials chemistry and fabrication requirements. In addition, their structural/physical/electrochemical properties were discussed in terms of compatibility with Li-metal batteries.
