Here we report an ‘injection’ strategy to introduce transportable Li-ion in the metallic Li free sulfur-graphite (S-G) pouch type full cell, which could alleviate the safety issues from Li dendrites. A novel process with organolithium reagent is used to reduce S to Li2S rapidly during assembling the pouch type full cell. The sublimation property of the side product enables the in-situ injection in the pouch type cell, which will not introduce impurities. In addition, this ‘injection’ strategy avoids the drawbacks from the instability of the Li2S to moisture, which could largely reduce the production cost and improve the practical energy density of the cell. The injected Li2S-G battery shows quite stable cyclability with a capacity of 640 mAh g−1 at 0.1 C rate. This in-situ ‘injection’ method provides an effective and practical way to produce Li metal free sulfur Li-ion battery with alleviated safety issues.
