salt setup
« on: January 14, 2016, 03:21:07 AM »
hello all, i'm new but I'm here to update what Ive been doing, and passably get some info.

Ive been fiddling with crystal cells and basic battery setups of my own design. I built a collection of 10 prototypes. I connected the cells in series and my meter reads 11 standing volts, sometimes 12 volt. I figure the cells have low capacitance due to the way I made each one. Any how I was wondering if there was a way to use the "slow voltage" in a joul thief or some circuit to modify the available power source to make it usable?   

The small cells have an electrolight made from table salt Epsom salt and ammonia. The taller small cells use just table salt and magnesium shavings with small amounts of water as the catalyst for the salt. The tallest cell is made from a magnesium Brick and a coiled strip of copper in a toilet paper tube and there's a tight wad of paper towel in the bottom to make the tube a cup. The composite in that one was a standard crystal cell recipe.

also the meter reads no continuity. and no ohms.

UPDATE! it doesn't like the cold! The standing voltage doped to 8volts over the course of 3 days in a cold garage.
