Organic Proton Battery Charges in Minutes

Organic Proton Battery Charges in Minutes
This experimental proton battery is made entirely with organic components, making it more environmentally friendly than most.

Batteries like the lithium-ion battery are created with metals that need to be mined and refined, causing a lot of environmental harm, not to mention how to dispose of them safely.

The active material in the proton battery is a group of organic compounds called quinones that are used by bacteria and plants in processes like photosynthesis and cellular respiration.

While this proof-of-concept battery is only a small button cell battery, it is very quick to charge, reaching full capacity in just 100 seconds and has a substantial 500 charge/discharge cycle.
