for some reason your gap looks very large between your pipes.

Gap is going to be 1/8. remember I will be using a ton of KOH.

The large gap is to ensure Oxygen stays away from the copper, also to allow good gas flow out of the tubes.

when I tested using a single tube, gas boils out of the cell, needs to have good flow.

looks good jolt.

I don't understand why you are going the electrolysis route tho, it's pretty much a cost/energy ineffective process, and doesn't lead to energy freedom in any regard.

You have the electronics skills, I'd think you'd be in a great position to jump all over Stan's work, and there you only need the 3" cell to get started, which I am sure you can build easier than this beast!. On that note, you could turn around and run this on a VIC and get huge production without chemicals.

Thanks Donald,

Well I don't mean to discorage anyone, but I already spent countless hours experimenting with Stan's work without any good results. So I started to experiment with low voltage and the results look better than when I tested Stan's...

The main Reason I'm building this cell, is to test a new circuit "ERC" Energy Recycling Circuit that I added to my Stable Gated PWM. I beliave we can extract some power from the cell, enouph to power a smaller second cell.

Electrojolt,

You have a very original idea. I like it.
Btw, i modified the ERC circuit.

Thanks Stevie,

Lets see if we can make the ERC perform some Magic. I will not be able to fully test mine until I complete this cell. This cell is not hard to build, even with simple tools (Drill, Hand Saw, Pipe cutter, etc..)  but it is very time consuming.

Cut 84 pipes, Tread 84 pipe ends, need to build a flange for the battery case, need to make 12 brackets to support the tubes, cut 252 spacers, 6 for each pair of tubes... OMG, just thinking about it I'm getting tired.

Little by little I will get it done.

Quick update


Today I built the Flange ( think that is the name for it).

I also open threads on all the SS tubes

Moving along.

Well, Electrojolt,

That is looking good!
Thanks for sharing the updates!

best regards
