Standard magnets will not work or will probably not work for this as they are not conductive enough and they are probably not strong enough to suspend the battery in the coil.
The folks at K&J Magnetis have a lot of fun experiments on their site and I did the train one with my 7yr old who enjoyed it a lot. Here is the K&J Magnetis site There is a lot of information in here. I have purchased many magnets from them over the years as I have built a lot of generators and experiments.
Yeah I had the same thought the battery gonna lose charge and energy. I highly doubt anyone is gonna get a perpetual motion machine out of this.

Cant see how when the AA battery will inevitably run out of charge.
Might be wrong all the same but if it was that easy i imagine someone would have achieved it by now.
