New easy selfmade Solarcell !
The Chemistry Professor David Soranio has invented an easy to build
DIY selfmade Solarcell !
It is based on using ionic liquids to get copper-1-Oxide into solution.

Copper-1-Oxide is a light sensitive semiconductor. This solution is then put in a wick
and as the other electrode he is using coppersulfate together with a copper electrode.
This solarcell puts out at maximum around
about 1.1 Volts.

 Here are his videos about this cell.

...but at what current?

Hope:
Suggest you get your hands dirty and try it and see the current.   Simple and low cost.    He is showing his findings at the ground floor level.  Up to us to develop the science into a usable prototype.

the amperage would be rather low per cell, but could be wired into a string boosting that.
the solar experts here might have a better answer, but it will be milliamps until chained into a string, depending on if they are connected in series or parallel, parallel making it higher in watts rather than amps. the cells can also be wired in a combination of both series and parallel. think i got it right.

hope that helps.

Yes, but with all the no-hopers posting rubbish videos around, nobody in their right mind would be bothered to replicate unless advised as to what that number is, and whether it is worth the trouble.
