The shortage of resources such as lithium and cobalt has promoted the development of novel battery systems with low cost, abundance, high performance, and efficient environmental adaptability. Due to the abundance and low cost of sodium, sodium-ion battery chemistry has drawn worldwide attention in energy storage systems. It is widely considered that wide-temperature tolerance sodium-ion batteries (WT-SIBs) can be rapidly developed due to their unique electrochemical and chemical properties. However, WT-SIBs, especially for their electrode materials and electrolyte systems, still face various challenges in harsh-temperature conditions. In this review, we focus on the achievements, failure mechanisms, fundamental chemistry, and scientific challenges of WT-SIBs. The insights of their design principles, current research, and safety issues are presented. Moreover, the possible future research directions on the battery materials for WT-SIBs are deeply discussed. Progress toward a comprehensive understanding of the emerging chemistry for WT-SIBs comprehensively discussed in this review will accelerate the practical applications of wide-temperature tolerance rechargeable batteries.
