The Flood / Thread for my battery shit
« on: March 29, 2024, 06:42:05 AM »
Thought I'd make one. I've been researching two battery cell types over the winter. One which I'll just refer to as a Clarke cell, and the other, a Karpen cell. Karpen is famous for making a battery that's been running for 70 years straight with no signs of corrosion on it. I tracked his patents down and got them translated into english. Guy was nice enough to write a couple of his recipies down and make something that's simpler for somebody who can't afford gold or platinum. He made some big claims due to not having all the info at the time and the scientific community laughed him off as a quack.

Clarke's cell is brass and aluminum sitting in moving or heated water. It's considered a thermo-electric cell. I combined it with Karpen's to see what fuckery I can get up to. I made three cells a month ago. A fat one with sodium carbonate in water that was sealed off. A small one that was concentrated, but could breathe, and one with just plain water that was sealed off.

Here's the two altered ones at the start of the month followed by at the end of the month.

In the large on the aluminum is getting hit by the carbonate, and in the small one the brass is tarnished big time. The big one seems more stable in its corrosion, and sits at 0.5 volts. The small one sits at 1.3 volts.

This is the third one with no alterations but water and an air seal after a month. Hydrogen gas is stuck above the water and it shows no signs of corrosion at all. It demonstrates interesting behavior. On any given day it sits at 0.3 - 0.6 volts. In hindsight I think it's due to the temperature around it. It regenerates its amperage about a minute after you disconnect it from a circuit.

It's not super strong, but if I got it right, it won't decay because everything is sitting in a state of equilibrium and reactions have been stopped. Karpen's cell is suspected to be a thermal cell as well, but it's not known for sure since his can't be taken apart.

It's also easy to make, so some time after a bit more testing I'll see if I can rig more of these up and stack some voltage. I'm also building a generator. I'll drop that abomination in here as I go as well just in case you guys are interested later.

Here's a hypothetical for you lads. Imagine whatever it is big that you have planned or going on in your life. Then imagine life ripping it a new asshole and leaving you with nothing.

My questions are; what do you think you'd do if that happened, and if it already did happen, why do you keep trying?

I know there's a few of you here who've seen shit and shit accessories. Your respective responses are worth my asking the question. I'm gonna take your answers(provided they're legit) and drop them on a fellow I've been holding together mentally for a couple months now. He's not going to make it much farther if nothing changes, and I sure as fuck ain't leaving him to his fate. I couldn't get my camper past the US border if I tried to give him a hand, so I need some answers that show why people earnestly try even if shit's failed over and over again.

Late nights and warmer weather can be slow for me. Ask me shit. Be nice to get to know the five people who frequent this crypt.

The Flood / Cheers lads

Cool place to stop by from time to time. Winter's rolling in quick this year and my computer's reaching inoperable temperatures in my camper, so that's it unless I stop by somewhere and bum some wifi with heat. See you all in the spring if that's not the case. Best of luck to you all with that corona shit. Be safe.

Interesting channel I bumped into, thought I'd share.
