Please read a recent paper published by Neale R Neelameggham in the Journal of Metals - April 2009 issue on Lightweighting lithium ion batterypacks using magnesium. The current battery packs loose the advantage of the 180 to 200 wh/kg of the individual cells down to about 90 wh/kg when assembling them into batteries - by adding excess weight - for heat balance control. The paper discusses how to avoid some of the weight increase by using magnesium. Those interested in this paper can contact the author at
