Polymer solar cells have shown good prospects for development due to their advantages of low cost, lightweight, solution-processable fabrication, and mechanical flexibility. Each polymer solar cell shows huge potential as a flexible and portable power generator. This device can offer good mechanical durability with high conversion efficiency which is applicable in appliances. Scientists developed highly efficient and mechanically favorable polymeric solar cells based on the polymer donor and the polymer acceptor. Moreover, polymer solar cells can show drastically enhanced power and flexibility in comparison with polymer/Phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl systems. This article reports a short review of recent development on flexible polymer solar cells which can easily bear more resistance and can be used as preferable for applications in flexible and portable appliances.
