    They are probably referring to a battery in which the electrodes are replaced by a liquid redox couple. One example of this is the soluble iron/soluble chromium type liquid flow batteries. The two solutions are separated by a membrane that keeps separate the two solutions (a redox couple). A recent development uses vanadium II/vanadium III as the redox couple.
