The best, simplest and cheapest single cell I have ever made.
I think the pictures speak for themselves. Please ask if you have questions. And improvements. And please make one yourself and let me know what you think. It's actually completely airtight.

Things I used:
Spokes from a bicycle. It seems to be stainless.
Soda bottle 0,5l
Fishing wire, 0,3mm
Rubber hose, 12mm
NaOH and KOH as electrolyte
Tapwater

Now it's just to build 6 of those and wiring it up in series. I'm excited to see the production then.

One improvement I would suggest is use distilled or rain water instead of tap water.

I don't think the production will be very good just with 2 wires, but if you built several you might get reasonable results. Keep us informed.

RE: The best, simplest and cheapest single cell I have ever made.
Yes, I will. I intend to make 6-8 of those and hook up in series to get the volts down. And the best is that I will not need to spend more money on this. I have spendt too much already on a not working kit from a water4gas distributor!

I get better production with this single cell, than at least 2 cells in series in water4gas style!

I believe it's because this cell uses the effect of the magnetism better than the water4gas one. The pos and neg are much closer each other, and it's easier for the magnetism to move around the round wire than f.ex a plate.

Well, have you ever seen a bike spoke rust? I am not 100 % sure, but I have actually never seen a bike spoke rust. I have runned it over night in NaOH/KOH solution, and I couldn't see any rust.

hey! that condiment cup setup is so cool! you just gave me a shortcut Big Grin ... thanks man

its a pain in the neck to source materials that the other guys are mentioning here... the Home Depot here doesnt carry the items available stateside..

oh i'd have to mention that i'm here in the philippines (which some of you probably have never heard of before Big Grin)
