Plant Battery Running a SEC
This is Jeanna’s new “Plant Battery” running a Slayer Exciter. The battery is made out of a common Philodendron house plant, a piece of copper, and a piece of magnesium. The two pieces of metal are just stuck into the damp potting soil and the battery instantly puts out 1.2 volts. There is enough power to run a Joule Thief or just barely enough to run this Slayer exciter. It is thought that the plant may aid in the chemistry of the battery. This was easy and fun to build. I will hook up a Joule Thief to it like Jeanna is doing and see how long this will run for. Hers has been running for about a week…..and the plant is still alive.
