A team of scientists led by Dr. Doron Aurbach at the Chemistry Department of Israel’s Bar-Ilan University has developed a rechargeable magnesium battery that can be recycled thousands of times with extremely low capacity fading. The battery, which is non-toxic and non-explosive, has a 60Wh/Kg energy density and demonstrates virtually no-self discharge. It has an operating temperature of -20° C to 60° C and has an almost constant voltage of ca. 1.1V.

Idea One of Clearwater, Fla will market the battery technology.
