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)): potassium ferrate or barium ferrate, as 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.
- "…the new cathode employs salts of an unusual ionic form of iron — hexavalent or superoxidized iron — that readily accept three electrons per ion, Licht explains. The more electrons the cathode can accept, the more electricity the battery can supply." —Peter Weiss
