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.
