http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zinc-air_battery

Zinc-air batteries, also called “zinc-air fuel cells,“ are non-rechargeable electro-chemical batteries powered by the oxidation of zinc with oxygen from the air. These batteries have very high energy densities and are relatively inexpensive to produce. They are used in hearing aids and in experimental electric vehicles. They may be an important part of a future zinc economy.

Eh? Eh? Shoot, my battery died again. ;)
Hopefully the cosmos is not trying to reverse the charges.
