Although baking soda is very easy and cheap to get it isn't the ideal electrolyte to use as far as I'm concerned in any type of fuel cell.

It doesn't last very long and turns to a brown junk quickly at the bottom of your cell.
Koh or Noah is a much better choice.

A little reading if you want to check it out.

It, 100% lye. Yes it works MUCH better. You can get it a a Ace hardware. It is called (Rooto).

RE: WHAT IS KOH?
My mix is 2 teaspoons in 1 gal of water and I pull 16 amps cold through a PWM. My system is beyond the Water4gas setup.

RE: WHAT IS KOH?
Actually lye is Naoh(sodium hydroxide) and Koh(potassium hydroxide). Naoh is the roebic brand at Lowes. You will need an ammeter to use either of these. Koh is harder to find but is much better to use.

I'm not disagreeing but how or why is KOH much better than NaOH?

RE: WHAT IS KOH?
I can't remember the numbers exactly but Naoh enhanced the water conductivity by like 53% and Koh was like 180%. Those numbers I know aren't correct but the idea was Koh enhanced conductivity so much better. It also did so at a lesser concentration.

If someone knows the exact numbers feel free to post.

The higher concentration of NaOH needed may help with freezing issues if you live in a climate that gets below freezing.
