Here we present a perspective on in-situ studies of high temperature batteries. We focus on a primary battery technology- the thermal battery- which possesses a molten salt electrolyte. We discuss aspects of sample environment design, data collection and will briefly look at some case studies. We aim to highlight the importance of using in-situ techniques in studying electrochemical devices such as high temperature batteries.
