Composites of a Li+ ion-conducting ceramic powder in a polyether-based elastomeric electrolyte matrix are described. At 66 wt.% of ceramic the composite can be prepared as a paste and cured into a coherent material having useful elastic and tensile properties. The total conductivity of the composite was found to be (1.9±0.2) × 10-4 S cm 1 at 40 °C which was approximately 1 order of magnitude higher than the polymer electrolyte component alone. The result was also approximately 1 order of magnitude higher than the total conductivity of the ceramic powders tested in this work.
