Iron oxide can be produced quite well by letting wet steel or iron sit outside for a while.

But i have heard that the natural process takes days to be completed.
But if i use a power supply to turn the 12 Volt output energy, it could be more efficient.

I looked up on the internet and i found out that the best method for this is to use a 12 volt battery charger.

And i have a few extra pc power supplies.
And i am trying to do this with a pc power supply, and i don't know which one is the positive cable and the negative cable.
