Scale up micro-solid-state batteries to large EV cells?

Every other scientist in the battery world seems to be working on commercializing large-scale solid-state batteries for use in EVs. The potential for technical and safety benefits is substantial, so there will be a big pot of gold for those who first make real advancements on the automotive level. 

Using solid electrolytes in batteries isn’t all that new, however. For example, there are some smaller applications that have already commercialized micro-solid-state batteries—integrated into the circuit boards of your laptop, or in other electronic applications. 

The conventional wisdom, however, is that the process used to make those types of solid-state batteries cannot be cost-effectively scaled up to large-format EV batteries.
