I saw a video about charging an iPod with an onion and Gatorade...

Now that has some viability to it. Did you ever see the fruit / veggie powered clocks, etc ? Yep, acid and electrolytes and you can get the chemical reaction for a little power (of course, don't expect this to charge the iPod in half an hour or anything LOL).

Yeah. It's not possible. Let's start with something REALLY basic. A battery is DC. A wall outlet is AC. 'nuff said.

And there is this bridge in Brooklyn that I own, anyone want to buy it? *sigh*

To answer the original question: it isn't (possible) :-)

Kinda guessed so. Kinda a disappointment, though, I guess.

Oh well, the only way to know sometimes, is to make the attempt. Explorers, not theorists, discover new ways to do things :-)

I tried it man. Its obvious and logical that it will not work. but it was so easy and cost me nothing but 2 mins to try. I tried in case there was something at play I didn't understand, which is very unlikely in something so simple. but I would have hated to post negative responses about it when all along it worked. It was easier to try and make sure I was right in my thought then to post and be wrong about it. we all woulda looked pretty schooled if it worked and we all bashed it without trying it. but don't worry all. the propertes of electricity remain steadfast......lol

it's so fake. For many different reasons it out puts dc not ac, transformers require ac the battery has too much internal resistance to even draw enough watts to make that possiable.
