Well, my new setup uses 316 wire connected directly to the cell.  We shall see.

Personally, however, that doesn't make sense to me.  The gas flow is too substancial, like there is still an electric force acting on it.

if there is no different metals exposed to the water you will be able to see this difference probably…

there was for me a eureka moment when i discovered that aluminum would give 1v with copper and some amps .. and with that i understood that there is this chemical oxidation potential of the metals and so different metals cause a voltage and if they are in electric contact and with water they will be able to discharge!!

One thing you must remember also is that when you “conditioning” your cell  your certainly transfering ions from one electrode to the other specialy above few volts… since stainless steel is a composition of metals the one with lower strength will go to the other electrode…. and the other electrode also is going to oxide to some extent so you may expect a voltage after conditioning for say… if you short them you may see this bubbles for for a while i guess too.. but will be much less i guess than with the aligator imersed…

my new cell i used some electroplating to solder the copper to the 304 material… i electroplated the tip of the electrode so i could solder with easy… wasnt easy to electroplate thought hahah

Why not use solder designed for stainless steel?  That's what I did.

i wanted to solder a 12awg… here to ask some one to do it with silver would be expensive… i tried and could not get it soldered my self… so i decided the plating would be a easy try … not so easy but i could solder with common iron… it was not easy too.. the layer is very thin and detach easy
but in the end i made 4 and made the cell…

all i used was some batery acid and old copper coils

One thing just occurred to me is that pulsing a transformer is equivalent to modulate its permeability



I mean with combining pulsing with impedance ransformation we get also impedance modulation...

At pulse start zero current maximum impedance

When pulse collapse current is maximum

Impedance is minimum when it takes the collapse pulse int

Than as current goes to zero impedance is modulated increasing after the pulse was dropped into the line

Just some thought passed here just now...

I think a good way to start with this would be with antena coax cable.. maybe 20m is a good start

Just ad a termination and test to find resonance

Than measure the volts and amps in vs volts out on load...

If output voltage is higher than input you get the load with higher impedance than line

Adding a core may reduce the frequency and change this impedance of the cable

With this setup ready we can start making comparisons using a bifilar and go step after step knowing where you going

Let us know how that works out for you.

I did some of this tests already in the past like 6 years ago.. no need to do with more care measuring everything
