Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Flexible aqueous batteries and supercapacitors have attracted a great deal of attention due to their unique advantages and application prospects in fast-growing portable and wearable electronics. These flexible energy storage devices are based on aqueous electrolytes instead of organic electrolytes, which makes them safer and more environmentally friendly. In addition, they offer high power density, superior cycling stability, excellent mechanical flexibility and high safety, which makes them suitable for various applications, including wearable electronics, electronic skin and flexible displays. The development of novel flexible aqueous batteries and supercapacitors is of high significance for flexible and wearable electronics and related fields.

The aim of this Special Issue titled “Novel Flexible Aqueous Batteries and Supercapacitors with High Safety” is to promote research developments and contribute to the sustainable growth of next-generation flexible energy storage devices with high safety. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Aqueous supercapacitors;
  • Aqueous zinc batteries;
  • Aqueous lithium batteries;
  • Aqueous sodium batteries;
  • Aqueous potassium batteries;
  • Aqueous aluminum batteries;
  • Aqueous ammonium batteries;
  • Aqueous magnesium batteries;
  • Aqueous hybrid batteries;
  • Aqueous metal–air batteries.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Batteries is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
