Thames & Kosmos 620615 Eco-Battery Vehicles

In this kit, you can build and experiment with a new type of environmentally friendly “fuel cell” to learn about electrochemical cells and BEV’s. The battery is a metal-air electrochemical cell, a type of battery that is widely used in small scale devices. It is ideal for demonstrating battery technology because it does not use any harmful chemicals: it uses only magnesium plates, salt water, and the oxygen in the air to generate electricity. Moreover, magnesium is considered an eco-friendly renewable fuel because it could be harvested cleanly from ocean water.
