I think that the reason the aluminum can didn't work is that there is a coating put on the inside of the can to stop the drink corroding the can and to keep the can from contaminating the drink. You probably just need to abrade the coating off of the can. Some fine grit sandpaper ought to do.
Great project, man. I just followed it, but for two AA batteries in a strait line, you know?Two diferences from the one I made:1: The tabs aren't in the sides, but where the battery's poles are. And I made little holes in them.2: I didn't used aluminum foil but aluminum can (to put some pressure). And then... The electricity didn't flow. :|The solution: I put the copper wire in front of it, held down by the batteries. Done. :)I think that the solution would be using a copper foil as strong as aluminum can. :)
