Gee here we are in the middle of an or a real energy type crisis. With potential to change a lot of peoples attitudes and to open their eyes to other possibilities. But this technology is still in its infancy even sort of hap hazard.
This is far from seamless anything!
The only thing I can recommend from my limited ability or understanding is go to any auto parts store and buy you a battery charger the one I use only puts out 1.5 volt trickle charge. There might be better ones out there but I don't know for sure?
This would be a good time for some one more mechanically inclined to open that mouth! And say there are much better units with such and such out- put? Or some sort of step down transformer from Dc to AC or vice versa.
Which even I feel is just not enough currant for testing or conditioning these cell plates because it only produces gas for a few seconds and then shuts off. Maybe some of these mechanical geniuses on here could losen up their tongues and help out a little more with more detail.
The only other way I can think of to test it would be to hook it up to your car's electrical system temporarily with the engine running and vent the gas away from the car or engine. And then be able to unhook and remove it would be the simplest or cheapest method besides going out and buying all this extra electrical charging equipment or junk.
Really I know or believe this technology can and does work but too many things can go wrong and we have to fight or try to work around systems that are in place and that work against this technology. This is far from a seamless operation the people who really need to know this stuff are mostly mechanic's! But changing their minds is often not such an easy thing either cuz they are caught in between the known or popular beliefs and methods and myths and this seemingly new frontier.
One good thing I have found is the idea that to save gas you have to some how lose peformence when in fact it is quite the opposit many times you gain power and perfomence when everything is working as it should be.
But really the simplest thing just heating your fuel and adding water or simple water injection without the HHO electrolysis can improve power and fuel mileage.
Or in my case finding a way to unhook my AWD transmission even just temporarily would add some power and mileage perhaps all I need to survive this crummy time and gas price gouging!
But several things you need to keep in mind is to make sure you can open up your cell some how because all these plates are going to dissolve over time and need to be replaced.
And I talk about the Hyzor by Eagle research and high consitrations of electrolyte but the Hyzor in this manual is a heavy welded steel box
. He is not talking about some flimsy glass or even plastic PVC cointainer So these guys like the Smack using what seems like small amounts of electrolyte afre more practical.
So me saying this once before was actually "a big mistake"! My apologies! This is a learning process and it is "a totally different animal" then the types of construction using glass or PVC I have been using and or experiemnting with which are the most common plastic or glass !
Because the unit talked about in this Hyzor Manual is not some "flimsy plastic model" but a heavy welded steel container that can handle the extra pressure of a much stronger solution consintration and higher heat and is more rugged and the top or lid is bolted down onto the unit. This would be the optimuim container but probably not the most affordable!
I was also looking at this or his Upside down TEE type PVC electrolyzer "Mini Hyzor" design but doubt if he recommends the same consintrations of solutions. That one is probably closer to what the Smack recommends for solution consintrations.
Really Some guy on another blog stated getting stated getting 60 mpg using a simpler device for his gas on a Honda CRX.
Not having to mess with all this junk. Really what would be nice is some type of currant limiter or adjustment nob that you can adjust on any given electrolyzer.
Instead of relays and fuses and breakers and switches that burn up or wear out or wires come loose or can't take the intense load!
And the newbie idea is good and nothing new as I recommended it myself as a sort of dumb it down type deal show us pictures of tools used and equipment and actual hands on stuff! Show us how to solder or what a PWM looks like how it is used adjusted and set up.
Give us basic diagrams! I found one for hooking up and electrolyzer from a PWM instruction from a kit! That is the only one I have found that i could really understand. And that showed with or without the PWM hooked up from Hydrogen garage.com. Very nice drawings and everything is marked how to hook it all up and what goes where. This almost anyone with a little mechanical knowledge could do and you have a picture right there to help you.

I will probably get shot for this but it is a good simple pic for simple people like me. And it may save people a lot of time money and questions. I don have or use an ameter or voltmeter either though it is probably a good idea. And my system worked very well for a while but I think either the switch keeps shorting out or a circuit breaker. Or my Electrolyte could be too strong as well!
I think the main thing about the plate preperation is to rough up the metal like if you were going to paint them so the primer or paint would stick better. Plus if you buy plate covers like for the Smack from Lowes they are coated in a clear rubber type coating or maybe something else like some chemical treatment. So needless to say you won't get much gas production from plates that are protected or insulated with a plastic or rubber coating.
So this is why they recommend sanding them with as course as possible sand paper or having the sand blasted and tickling them with a center puch and a hammer or even an engraver like the Smack booster recommends.
Some metals like SS plate covers are coated or protected from electricity to reduce the possibility of shock.
I have even used a hack saw blade just to rough up the metal when it seemed like the sander wasn't doing the job. I even think a rough or course grinder would work pretty good.
