Super iron battery
The Super-iron battery is a new class of rechargeable electric battery.
"Super-iron" is a moniker for a special kind of ferrate salt (iron(VI)), this is, potassium ferrate (K2FeO4) or barium ferrate (BaFeO4), used in this new class of batteries.
As of 2004 chemist Stuart Licht of the University of Massachusetts in Boston was leading research into a Super-iron battery.
It uses the same zinc anode and electrolyte as an alkaline battery, but its capacity is around 50% higher.
Additional recommended knowledge
Iron rust is nontoxic, preferable over mercury, cadmium, manganese and nickel oxides.
