A follow up pst I made this morning did not get posted,
I said that putting a copper tube in the can would produce quite a bit more current!
The tub could be close to the size of the can, but must not touch… if it touches, no voltage. Same as a “shorted cell”
The only circuit path is thru the electrolyte, and wires to the utilization circuit.
Using a similar size of copper tube instead of a “penny” will make this 100x stronger. Also using a good electrolyte, instead of the Coke is a great idea, WhirliBird can drink his Coke and STILL Have a Battery!
Drain Cleaner and the copper tubing would make a serious cell.
A “cell” is one set of dissimilar metals and electrolyte. A “battery” is 2 or more “cells”.
Neat article, but the upgrades are quite simple to do!
It could possibly save your life, one day. (Or Mine!)
