A fully printable perovskite solar cell (PVSC) is demonstrated using a blade-coating technique under ambient conditions with controlled humidity. The influence of humidity on perovskite's crystallization is systematically investigated to realize the ambient processing condition. A high power conversion efficiency of 10.44% is achieved after optimizing the blade-coating process and, more importantly, a high-performance flexible PVSC is demonstrated for the first time. A high efficiency of 7.14% is achieved.
