The continuous use of wearable devices for diverse applications requires flexible and stretchable energy storage devices. The book discusses flexible and stretchable supercapacitors and batteries, stretchable and self-healing gel electrolytes and hybrid wearable energy storage–harvesting devices.
The author describes the challenges and solutions in design concepts, fabrication methods and mechanical and electrochemical performances for energy storage devices. The book has an interesting title and a beautiful cover and designs, but it is not as comfortable to read (especially for elderly academics!) because the lines are very close together. It contains an extensive list of references.
This book will appeal to researchers in academia and industry, as well as to students.
