Olde battery from modern parts

Just thought I'd share something I made recently and posted about on another forum;

A battery!

Olde battery from modern parts IMGP2332




Made from;

Salt
Water
Copper wire
Zinc coated nails
Lolly-ice maker (or popsicle maker for you yankies Wink)

How? In five minutes that's how Laughing

Mix lots of salt into hot water so you can disolve more into it, atleast two table spoons to one glass.
I also added acid (vinegar) which increased power a little bit but adding alot of vinegar did not increase it (it acctually decreased it) one or two drops per lolly-ice compartment was best.

Next connect one wire to some copper (or just strip a long section of the wire if it is copper inside) and connect another wire to one of the nails, putting the copper in one side of your battery fluid and the zinc nail in the other will give you current flow! Test with a low range meter or LED.

Double or tripple or quadripple up your batteries for more power! This is why I suggest using a lolly-ice maker, lots of nice little compartments which are easily connected between Smile

More pictures Very Happy

I acctually got the LED about twice as bright as in that photograph by experimenting with different concentrations of salt and vinegar but my camera eats batteries like theres no tomorrow so ran out after a few photographs, not even my home made battery was up to the task Wink

I might try all 8 battery compartments filled, I only used 4 that night because I only made 3 short jump cables with copper on one side and a zinc nail on the other and I was too tired to make more Laughing




Anyone care to join me in some maniacal laughter?
MWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Thankyou Herr Doktor, your praise means much to me Smile


P.S. I can safely say I won't be trying that flavour of ice lolly Rolling Eyes
