Metal–oxygen batteries have attracted significant attention due to the high theoretical capacities of some chemistries. This chapter summarizes the history of metal-oxygen batteries and reviews the current status of room-temperature, non-aqueous systems. Emphasis is given to the operating mechanisms, unsolved challenges, and new approaches associated with the Li–O2 system.
