Lowe's Wall Plate Dry Cell
That's right!

I've been following this guy over at HHO Forums, goes by the name of Painless, and he has built a dry cell out of wall plates! Seven wall plates! Words escape me regarding his build. I would suggest everyone interested in building a dry cell check out this guys thread. He also has a channel over on You Tube by the same user name.

It's just amazing what this guy has done with the knowledge, tools, and talents he's aquired just over the past summer months!

RE: Lowe's Wall Plate Dry Cell
Interesting - not sure I would call it dry cell?

I may have labelled differently as it is two groups of 4 +- cells in series seperated by plexi...but I suppose it is all the same...

Basically 12/4=3V for each sides plate to plate voltage as they are in Parallel

[+-|+-|+-|+-|-+|-+|-+|-+]

Positives wired to the ends and also to the middle two negatives.

Always remember there is a fine line between genius and insanity, so don't cross it.

If all great minds thought alike, we'd get nowhere, the differences can make us all prosper.

Rudagray, look through the entire thread (yes, it's quit long) but about 4 pages through he shifts gears to a dry cell configuration. You might want to also check out his You Tube Videos. I believe he goes by Painless on there as well.

Try this page:

Brillant.

I just got done with one yesterday. Brand new it produced 500mlpm at 5.5amps. temp ran at 105 after 3hrs. The setup I used is +nnnnn-. I used 7 wall plates and 1/8 neoprene. My end plates are HDPE(cutting board)1/2 thick. Works great and it is small.
