Abstract

This paper gives a detailed insight on a revolutionizing and gratifying solution of energy storage through Paper Batteries and provides an in-depth analysis of the same. A Paper Battery is a flexible, ultrathin energy storage and production device formed by combining grapheme/silver nano-particles with a conventional sheet of cellulose-based paper. A Paper Battery can function both as a high-energy battery and super capacitor, combining two discrete components that are separate in traditional electronics. The promising fabrication technique allows the Paper Battery to provide both long-term steady power production and self-life. Being environment friendly, flexible, biodegradable, light-weight and non-toxic, flexible Paper Batteries have impending adaptability to power the next generation of electronics, medical devices and hybrid vehicles, allowing for radical new designs and medical technologies. This paper is aimed at understanding and analyzing the electrical properties and physical characteristics of Paper Batteries; to study its advantages, potential applications, limitations and disadvantages. This paper also aims at highlighting the construction and method of fabrication of Paper Battery and look for alternative means of massproduction.
