Volumetric energy capacity of the batteries tested in this study are 62%-435% more effective than lithium air batteries depending upon the materials used. These molten air batteries use air, a molten electrolyte, are quasi-reversible (rechargeable), have the capability for multiple electrons stored per molecule, and have the highest intrinsic electric energy storage capacities. This study introduces the principles of a new class of high-energy batteries and their fundamental chemistry is demonstrated.
