Yao, who is also a principal investigator with the Texas Center for Superconductivity at UH, and his colleagues tested organic quinone polymer cathodes with a magnesium metal anode using the chloride-free electrolyte. They reported up to 243 W⋅h/kg was delivered, with a measured power of up to 3.4 kW/kg. The battery stayed stable through 2500 cycles.
