Lithium-ion batteries are so abundant in our daily life, that it is very difficult to imagine a world without them. All portable electric devices are powered by them, and they are by far the most promising technology for the future of automotive mobility. Particularly solid electrolytes are highly investigated in literature right now, as they are inflammable and the battery thus less prone to explosion. Currently, a quest for the best solid electrolyte, which most importantly needs to have a high lithium-ion conductivity, takes place in science. Lithium thiophosphates are a promising material class, containing cheap and earth-abundant materials.
