Application of Li-ion batteries with liquid electrolytes at elevated temperatures (above 60°C) is limited due to the decomposition of the electrolyte. Stable solid state electrolytes can solve this problem, but the conductivity of these electrolytes are relatively low, the interfacial contacts with the electrodes are poor, and the charge transfer kinetics in the electrodes are limited. Solutions for these problems by using composite electrodes and electrolytes have been investigated and the results are described. A new concept for making all-solid-state Li-ion batteries that can be applied in the temperature range between room temperature and about 150°C will be presented.
