Keywords: Sodium ion Battery, Pouch cell, Prussian Blue Analogues, Faradion


Sodium ion batteries (SIBs) have recently emerged as a promising alternative to lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) due to their abundance, cost-effectiveness, and similar electrochemical properties. This review provides an in-depth analysis of the science behind it and the technology to explore, the scope for commercialization, prospects, advantages, and disadvantages of SIBs in the realm of energy storage technology. Through a critical examination of current research and developments, this article elucidates the potential of SIBs in revolutionizing the energy storage landscape.
