A Homemade Battery Using Earth (Soil) – Powers Clocks/Watches/Calcs/LED Lights
We all know that electricity can come in many forms, from dams to chemicals and even fruits. But we never knew that you can make electricity from the actual earth we stand on. Earth Batteries are easy to make and produce enough power to run many items such as Lcd clocks, watches, pedometers, calculators, LED lighting and more. all that’s needed is copper wire (from old extension cord etc.), several small bolts (screws or nails can also be used), an ice cube tray and dirt. That’s it. makes a quick and easy battery. works best if it’s made with moist dirt/soil. Note: every couple of days the dirt will “dry out” and the voltage will decrease.
