This potato can produce a battery which is 10 times more potent than raw

This one piece of potato which has been cooked for 8 minutes above can produce a battery which is 10 times more potent than the raw according to some research.

Haim Rabinovicth, a professor of science and agriculture.

The experimentation was transmitted, he took a potato billet and set the positioned between zinc anode and copper cathode. Which were connected with wire. Can use to light, he found out these units using LED light, can illuminate a room for 40 days using this experiment.


It is very useful to others, particularly in the world where technology is not so developing. It gives many chances, possibilities and opportunities.

To make a battery from organic material, all you need is two metals – an anode, which is the negative electrode, such as zinc, and a cathode, the positively charged electrode, such as copper. The acid inside the potato forms a chemical reaction with the zinc and copper, and when the electrons flow from one material to another, energy is released.

This was discovered by Luigi Galvani in 1780 when he connected two metals to the legs of a frog, causing its muscles to twitch. But you can put many materials between these two electrodes to get the same effect. Alexander Volta, around the time of Galvani, used saltwater-soaked paper. Others have made “earth batteries” using two metal plates and a pile of dirt, or a bucket of water.

There are two reasons why potatoes and no other vegetables ? 

First, these potatoes can develop which means can grow in every possible climate, anyplace in the world Then the second you can find them every place.
