The simultaneous decrease in electronic device form factors yet increase in functionality has motivated a shift in energy storage design and manufacture to accommodate novel and unconventional materials, new device geometries, and nontraditional fabrication methods. We are developing a simple, low-cost, solution-based method for integrating custom energy storage components directly onto a device. A direct write dispenser printing system is used to pattern solutionsbased materials into multilayer devices. Along with this fabrication method, we discuss the materials design and device characterization of two printed energy storage devices: a carbon electrochemical microcapacitor and a zinc-metal oxide microbattery. The two components will be used as a hybrid energy storage system, capable of providing an energy dense storage buffer while also being able to address high power pulse loads, all within a limited footprint area.
