First of all, prepare the details for your future hand-made battery. Use vinegar mixed with salt to clean coins (they'll really look as bright as brand new). Leave them in the liquid for a while after you've cleaned them. Meanwhile cut 8-10 cardboard circles the same size as your coins.

Step 2: Making Foil Circles

So, after you have prepared all the details, you can assemble your battery. Put the details one one another in the following order: a coin, a cardboard circle, a foil circle. Do it until all the details are used. On the top of your battery should be a coin.

Step 4: Test With Multimeter
