In this work, we have researched the existence and importance of the ion-ion correlation effects on the relaxation of electrical conductivity of doped AgI crystals with Lithium Iodide at close temperatures and below the superionic transition.
With the addition of water and the use of lithium iodide as a 'mediator', their battery showed far less of the chemical reactions which can cause cells to die, making it far more stable after multiple charge and discharge cycles.
