Water powered pulse motor + crystal cells
A few recent experiments. An idea for rotors really impressed me, that Magnetman has on his channel. Similar to those by other folks, but he showed an air gap suspension. Here, i’ve increased the air gap distance to a point that it’s still stable, without using overly clunky strong magnets. The first shown, is powered by standard water from a store bought bottle, no salts or anything, any water will do. Electrodes are burnt copper (on the stove til salmon coloured) and galvanized steel. The LED on the sMartCreations2010 circuit flashes only at start up (when auto-starting) but it runs best with a quick push start. Output from the water is 0.79V at 300uA. The other motor shown, uses a solar panel as power source and normally runs near my 13W CFL work area lamp. Comically, Iluzyon1 did the same thing by putting a small R/C heli prop on his, shown in his video yesterday…it helped mine to not wander at quicker speeds and strike the powering coil. Then a rejuvenated salts cell is shown, that fell down the back of the bedroom dresser around Christmas of 2011. It ran out of power a couple of weeks ago, so I added 2 drops of water to the top. it’s flashing away again now 🙂 Finally, the Heater Meals cell. Made mostly from the contents of the bags found in such emergency supply products.
