Can you believe this? I surely couldn’t, until I saw the video!
The researcher, Haim Rabinovitch, made a really great discovery! He discovered that a potato cooked for eight minutes creates a battery 10 times more powerful than raw. He placed slices of potato between copper and zinc anode, which were connected with a wire. The results?! It’s amazing, these units could light up a room with LED light, for up to 40 days!
Why potatoes you may ask? Well, it’s because potatoes grow almost everywhere, and you can find them in abundance. That gives the underdeveloped parts of the world whole new meaning and opportunities.
In this particular case, potatoes are not the source of energy, they only act as a connection or the bridge between the metals, allowing the electrons to run through the wire, providing electricity.
