The lithium ion battery, with its high power density and low reduction possible, continues to enchant researchers plus dominate the landscape of power storage systems development. Nevertheless , the demands of technology in modern society have begun to disclose limitations of the lithium power revolution. A combination of protection concerns, strained natural resources and geopolitics have inspired the research for alternative energy storage plus delivery platforms. Traditional liquid electrolytes prove precarious in large size schemes due to the tendency for leakage, the potential meant for side reactions and their rust nature. Alternative electrolytic materials in the form of solid inorganic ion conductors and solid polymer bonded matrices offer new possibilities to get all solid state batteries. In addition to the engineering of novel electrolyte materials, there is certainly the opportunity to employ post-lithium chemistries. Utility of multivalent cation (Ca2+, Mg2+, Zn2+ and Al3+) transportation promises a decrease in cost and increase in safety. In this particular review, we examine the current research concentrated on developing solid electrolytes making use of multivalent metal cation charge companies and the outlook for their application in most solid state batteries.
