Water Powered Batteries with MIT’s Walter Levin lessons


This video proves that energy can be tranformed into a battery, perhaps confirming that it is possible to make a battery with a candle, lime, or potatoes.

Thanks gfcgamer!

    Mouarf. Potatoes battery is just chemical, as the first Volta battery was. No relation with this water battery.

    Zedomax, I watched the video you have linked and it was very interesting, I am guessing here that the static charge is actually provided through the the transfer of a eletrostatic charge (electron transfer) between the water running throught the barrel and plastic tubing. This would allow the water to transfer it’s charge from the friction with the tubing – through the air (made easier with a humid atmosphere”water”) to the smaller (insulated) cans allowing the charge to build up till it can bridge the gap between the two metal rods.
