Polymerized ionic liquids have been recently receiving the attention of scientific community as potential candidates for energy-storage materials in industrial applications  but also as testing ground for polymer research in general. In this work we analyze the variation of charge dynamics in monomeric, oligomeric, and long-chain ionic melts by means of dielectric spectroscopy, rheology, and field-gradient nuclear magnetic resonance. In this respect the length of the positively charged backbone is systematically increased while the type of anions and their concentration are kept invariant. Surprisingly, indications of a clear decoupling between the dynamics corresponding to positive and negative charges occur already for oligomeric chains comprising two to three monomeric units only. Our investigation aims at describing the evolution of transport parameters with the degree of polymerization and also at providing a general picture of the conductivity mechanism in ionic and polymerized ionic liquids .
