A real crystal cell that doesn't corrode,ever.prick around those 2 layers with the 2 wires and try to get a stable current reading jon.don't put your fingers too near the ends of wire-prongs because we don't want temperature interference

Also one half of your cap should have a thin metallic pole sticking out of it.you can clamp the pole to the positive side of meter while you prick around for current with other wire

Yeah but current is so low I can't even get a full milli amp

Have you been successful with this design?

I've been plenty successful with similar designs yes but I can't get hold of large enough tantalum caps to play around with in this area.you don't realise it but the fact that you're getting steady current is very important scientificaly

I've tried a few times with a few of the same capacitorsize and then once they discharge i lose the current even after adding some water

I'm going to shoot a YouTube video tonight and I'll upload it to this page so you can see where I'm at

and I have to leave my workshop right now because I'm going to my father in laws house  for pumpkin carving with my kids

I think you'll dig the results
