An electrochemical cell comprises an ion permeable, liquid and vapor impermeable, membrane made by a solvent casting process. Two mutually insoluble polymers are cast together with the aide of mutually soluble co-solvents. The ion permeable membrane comprises a high molecular weight polyisobutylene polymer structural component. The linearized poly(acrylic acid) polymer ion conducting component comprises which is 4 wt % to 6 wt % of the membrane. The dried ion permeable membrane has a thickness of about 0.1 millimeters. The membrane is hydrated and used for transporting ions in an electrochemical cell. The cell demonstrates good reversibility, i.e. rechargability.
