Increasing demand of the renewable and clean energy sources and the rapid depletion of fossil resources have been increased the interest in different and new alternative energy production and energy storage systems. Among the electrochemical energy storage systems, next-generation thin film batteries are so attractive because of their long cycle life, stability, high capacity, portability and decreasing prices. The integration of solid parts as electrode or electrolyte in Li-based batteries brings to safety that’s why causes no leakage or explosion and prevents thermal runaway. The current studies are intended to reduce the difference between theoretical and practical specific energy densities of these batteries. It can be realized that using micron (less than 5 μm) or nano thickness microbatteries in the practical applications with moderating the battery weight. Thin film reduces diffusion length of electrons/Li ions and Li dendrite formation so expected rate performance is obtained. In this review, thin film batteries (TFBs) were studied in detail. Especially, 3D microbatteries were investigated depending on their flexibility or printable. Additionally, their performance as electro-active components was investigated compared to their traditional counterparts. It is also planned to be a guide for inspired similar studies in the future direction.
