The hunt for alternative energy has taken a leap into technology. An air-powered battery has been developed by scientists at Scotland’s University of St Andrews, ushering in a new era of alternative energy.

The battery’s innovative technology is referred to as STAIR. It utilizes oxygen as a re-agent to recharge instead of resident chemicals, making the battery lighter and less expensive to produce.

The battery is also said to last up to ten times longer than conventional batteries, which require chemicals to be recirculated. Stats for Air-Powered Batteries Trending: Older & Mild
