New Cell Suggestions?
I have just had some new plates cut on a laser table at work.
The dimensions are 3.5" X 5" with (2) 5/16" holes cut in the middle to mount.

The question is which is the best way to implement them.

Two plate design like wulfram?
Smack booster?
Series Cell w/ 7 containers?

I have a smack booster already. It produces well but gets warm.

I like the 7-cell design but how many plates are best for each cell?
2,3,4?

What about if I wanted to use just one container? What is the best design?

I would love to hear some suggestions as to which direction you all would like to see.

Oh I have 19 plates same dimensions.

5 Cell Series
NaOH electrolyte
3.5" X 5" Electrodes

I would build a series cell where you can deliver around 2 volts per cell while keeping each cell's bath of electrolyte electrically isolated from the others. That way you should see maximum gas production/efficiency and minimum heating.

RE: New Cell Suggestions?
ok I have been thinking that too. Where is the best place to get plastic sheeting to make a box?

I am thinking 3mm gap is the norm right?

How about #of plates per cell? 2..3..4?

How much does that really matter?

My trucks runs with 13.9 v so 7 cells should be right so I get about 1.9 v each.

Or maybe 6 cells for 2.32 v?
