How to Make a Simple Lemon Battery


Introduction: How to Make a Simple Lemon Battery

thin instructerbule will show you how to make a simple lemon battery

Step 1:

first what you will need for your battery

galvinised nail
 a peice of thick copper wire
battery tester

Step 2:

what you will need to do is put your nail into the lemon about 3cm in then grab your copper peice and stick it in (about the same distance in) next to the nail

Step 3:

then all you need to do is use your battery tester to see if its working but it only will put out up to 0.9v which is not that much

also once you do this you can put two lemon batterys just using the wire to conect it together and get more volts

Step 4:

now you are done

plz comment and keep in mind this is my first instructerbule and iv never made one before

    Its awesome dude?

    Capitalize ;)

    Also, a galvanized nail is zinc plated, not aluminum.

    What kind of amperage do you see? Does it change under load (with a resistor in series)? Does it depend on the freshness of the lemon?

    Apart from that (which sounds very negative), good job - next challenge, make your own project with original images.
