Gel polymer electrolytes (GPEs) have received global attention as a viable substitute for liquid and solid electrolytes. They consist of a salt/solvent mixture encapsulated within a suitable polymer. GPEs have been immensely used for various found to be creating some adverse effects for the performance were carried out on a gel

This value together with the good mechanical properties proved the suitability of the GPE to be employed for energy storage applications. The sample was purely an ionic conductor. The electrodes but not on stainless steel electrodes. electrolytes.
