Aqueous zinc-ion batteries are realistic candidates as stationary storage systems for power-grid applications. However, to accelerate their commercialization, some important challenges must be specifically tackled, and appropriate experimental practices need to be embraced to align the academic research efforts with the realistic industrial working conditions for stationary storage. Within this commentary article, both the open challenges and the good experimental practices are discussed in relation to their impact on the future development of the aqueous Zn-ion technology.
