The concept of the transport energy (TE) has proven to be one of the most powerful theoretical approaches to describe chargetransport in organic semiconductors. In the recent paper L. Li, G. Meller, and H. Kosina [Appl. Phys. Lett.92, 013307 (2008)] have studied the effect of the partially filled localized states on the position of the TE level. We show that the position of the TE is essentially different to the one suggested by L. Li, G. Meller, and H. Kosina [Appl. Phys. Lett.92, 013307 (2008)] We further modify the standard TE approach taking into account the percolation nature of the transport path. Our calculations show that the TE becomes dependent on the concentration of charge carriersn at much higher n values than those, at which the carrier mobility already strongly depends on n. Hence the calculations of the concentration-dependent carrier mobility cannot be performed within the approach, in which only the concentration dependence of the TE is taken into account.
