    Unlikely as I’d drink it long before it became a battery.

    Interesting. MacGyver would be proud. I wonder how long the battery would last and if you could recharge it?

    Haven’t looked at it yet, but don’t expect much current out of it.

    But they could be paralleled for higher loads.

    I also am not sure about this. May work to get a small current.

    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! :D

    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!)
