We report that electrocatalytic water decomposition can be leveraged to enhance the performance of aqueous batteries. Using the NaxFe[Fe(CN)6]ǁNaTi2(PO4)3 aqueous battery as a platform, we demonstrate that electrocatalytic water oxidation can serve as an electrochemical activation approach to achieving higher full cell capacity.
