Homemade Earth Battery
Here’s how to make a “DIY “Earth Battery“. The Earth Battery is simple to make, and will produce enough power to run a variety of things such as Lcd clocks, watches, pedometers, calculators, LED lighting and more. Here’s what you’ll need to make your earth battery:
Copper wire (from old extension cord etc.)
Several small bolts (screws or nails can also be used)
Ice cube tray
That’s all you need to make a quick and easy battery. The battery works best if it’s made with moist dirt/soil. Tip: Every few days the dirt will “dry out” and the voltage will drop.
TO RECHARGE THE BATTERY simply add 1 or 2 teaspoons of water to each “cell” and the battery will be “recharged”. To get more voltage make more than 1 battery and connect them together.
Note: Try to use “galvanized” bolts, screws or nails. They will work the best. In this video is footage of a bigger outdoor “single cell” homemade earth battery. It was made using a 2′ long piece of copper pipe and a large foot long nail.
