We describe a route to make a robust and stretchable array of batteries using the direct ink writing (DIW) additive manufacturing method. All components of the batteries are created using direct ink writing in atmospheric conditions. The individual batteries consist of lithium iron phosphate cathodes, lithium lanthanum zirconium oxide electrolytes, and lithium titanate anodes. The encapsulation is stretchable silicon with silver wiring printed around the components, creating an array of batteries with tailorable voltage and current and a form-factor specific to any given application, including stretchable and flexible surfaces. Novel ink compositions are synthesized and characterized to provide the most facile printing and robust battery. Electrochemical characterization is conducted to ensure longevity and performance characteristics.
