Batteries/cells
« on: 03/09/2005 13:37:07 »
What is the best way to generate power using no motor, from reactions and stored energy, like lemon batteries, using household goods?

how much energy would it be theoretically possible to create?

The lower the pH the higher the voltage, current comes from the surface area of the electrodes. Different metals give you different voltages, experiment. You'll never get much power though, powering a digital watch may be about as far as you'll get.
