All-solid-state lithium batteries have become an important focus due to their high energy density, long cycling life and excellent safety. As the key part of all-solid-state lithium batteries, solid electrolytes include oxide, sulfide, polymer and composite. The key issues for developing all-solid-sate lithium rechargeable batteries include the design and preparation of solid electrolytes with high ionic conductivities, and solution of the interface resistance between solid electrolytes and electrodes. In this article, the recent developments and relative issues concerning the solid electrolytes and the interface stabilities are reviewed, and the key issues and development direction on all-solid-state lithium batteries are prospected.
