From 60 solvent electrolyte combinations tested, we find that Li metal anodes, tested in 1 M LiFSI in DOL:DME exhibit an outstanding cycling performance (>500 cycles) even at high current densities (3 mA cm−2). The excellent performance is ascribed, at least in part, to a low Li nucleation overpotential and a low charge transfer resistance during cycling.
