It is critically important to develop miniature energy harvesting and storage devices in modern electronics, for example, for portable and foldable electronic facilities. In this review article, novel miniature solar cells, electrochemical capacitors and lithium-ion batteries as well as their integrated devices are carefully summarized. Particular emphasis has been paid to wire-shape energy devices that exhibit unique and promising advantages such as being lightweight and weaveable compared with the conventional planar architecture. Recent new materials and attractive designs are highlighted for these wire-shaped energy devices.
