Pennies

Cardboard

LED Christmas lights

And a Lemon

Step 1: Get Five Pennies From 2007-2013

Step 2: Sand Four of the Pennies on One Side of the Pennie

Sand it until one side on the Pennie until it looks silver.

each of the cell with a penny and cardboard produce 0.5- 0.8 volts, so if three penny is used it will produce a total of 2- 2.5 volts.
