Zwitterionic electrolytes such as N-methyl-N-(n-butanesulfonate) pyrrolidinium are added to electrolyte compositions such as polyelectrolytes, ionic liquid electrolytes and molecular solvent electrolytes (for example, lithium hexafluorophosphate) to improve conductivity of the ion species, such as lithium, in the electrolyte. This has application to lithium based energy storage devices such as batteries and supercapacitors.
