Converting a 12V Lead acid to a hydrogen generator? Answered
Is it possible to take a 12V lead acid battery, remove the acid from all 6 cells and replace with water and connect to a 12V power source, and get H2 and O2 gasses bubbling out the top?
The reasoning behind this question is that the 12 volt lead acid batteries are made of 6 cells, each producing about 2 volts, connected in series. If instead of producing 12V we could (by removing the acid and replacing with salt water) feed it 12V, wouldn't we have 6 hydrolysis cells running at 2V each?
6 cells of 2V hydrolysis cells is nothing new, but has anyone of you ever tried to convert a lead acid battery before?
Is the lead going to be any good as electrodes?
Will the lead oxidize too fast?
Will the there be any chemical reaction that would change the produced gasses?
Should I be worried about lead poisoning for even typing these words?
Should I be asking anything else I haven't thought about?
