Introduction: Bleaching Powder Battery
Its a simple homemade battery costs around .92$
Step 1: Materials
500g of ordinary chlorax bleach
×1 clip cable
×10 50ml small container's
×10 aluminum strips
×10 copper strips
Step 2: Cells Construction
Take a knife , make two slits , beware make one small and make one bit large and make a small hole using shouldering iron for drain hole.
Step 3: Electrodes
Fit the aluminium strip to the large slit and copper to small slit.
ALUMINUM - cathode
COPPER + anode
Step 4: Filling Electrolyte
Take one container, fill water until it reaches top, later add a spoon of chloride bleach, stirred it well until it dissolve.
Step 5: Testing Cell
Have a look, each cell produces around 1.35v to 1.45v.
Step 6: Connecting All Cells
Now, I have connected all cells together, it produces 14.30v to around 15v max so I can easily connect to my home theater.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
Is there any issue of small amount of chlorine being developed here? Wow, 14-15 volts from these chlorax batteries! Quite innovative. Well, any metal with a base (bleach contains Lye too) would generate electricity.
Do you know if Hypochorite ions in solution with lye help increase voltage? Electrical Potential Molar of Lye (Sodium hydroxide).
NaOH (aq) >>> Na+ + OH-. Probably the main factor. Hypochorite ions are quite weak for an acid tho.
As a test you should test 1 mole Lye soluton and 1 mole Bleach to see the difference in voltage. That would allow you to see the difference in voltage potential here.
