Fig. 1 Graphical summary of challenges currently faced by Li/air batteries. The four main hurdles are the poor rate capability (top left), i.e. the ability of Li/air cells to deliver enough power; the high charge overvoltage (top right), which leads to low Coulombic effi ciency; the decomposition of the active materials (bottom left), which causes a low cycle life; and the reactivity of the lithium metal anode (bottom right), which poses serious safety threats.
