With the recent advancements in the field of flexible electronics, there is growing interest in thin, lightweight, and flexible energy storage devices. Active radio-frequency identification tags, integrated circuit smart cards, rollup displays and wearable devices require bendable or flexible batteries for durability in daily use. Zinc based rechargeable batteries can be a potential power source of the flexible devices NCFlexE, IIT Kanpur has successfully demonstrated flexible printed batteries. Current emphasis is on the development of flexible and stretchable electrodes, electrolytes and other battery components. Electrodes based on graphene, MXene are being developed for battery applications
