The basis for my strategy

A project log for Potassium Sulfur Silica Battery

In the future lithium reserves may not be as easy to mine as they are today, Potassium could be an alternate alkaline metal for batteries.

This paper entails the opposite of what I am attempting.

I will start with a potassiated cathode so the full cell will be discharged upon assembly, this should increase total amp hours per gram as there will be a perfect amount of sulfur compared to potassium in the cathode.

A slight excess of amorphous silica in the anode will give the potassium ions plenty of space to fully intercalate, this is going to be awesome!
