Donald Sadoway: The missing link to renewable energy
You know I mentioned a water battery I designed some years ago on teds site and got very little attention. Even tho the battery I designed worked and supplied power for years and its electrolyte was only plain water. But I guess it did not need enough maintenance to be worthy of making money. Seems for a battery to be worthy it must not last long and contain toxic chemicals. Go figure.

A way to get electricity from pure water.
Perhaps Bharath, if you submit to the view water is scarce, when like you said the world is three-fourths water. Rain water will do just as nicely, we get plenty of rain here. The water in the cells is not per say used up, most evaporates and you do half to add a little water once a week or so. The water cells could be made to evaporate far less, but i use open tops at the moment. I have an idea of using a cell in a air tight container,,where electrodes set above the water. Where the moisture which would evaporate and again fall or condense in the container would be enough to keep the foam moist and the cell supplying power. This version would work better in the sense that there most likely would be even less erosion of electrodes. But even as it is now, electrodes will last years.

Well as to impurities in the water,,I cant say,,works with all types of water I use..I first started with aqua fina water by the way,,and it ran just as good as any other..Now aqua fina is supposed to be very pure,,even the salts are supposed to be removed in that kind of water, they state they remove them which other bottling waters leave behind. I still say it uses the hydrogen and oxygen which form on the magnesium electrode in a zillion tiny bubbles. Now could it use one of the gases more then the other for energy,,or is that electrode only producing one gas and not the other,,I cant say. Further test could prove such I suppose. But like I said works with all types of water,,even aqua fina bottled water..

I think your forgetting one little piece to the puzzle,,the energy used in making the batteries. Then maybe you will get the picture. As to how it actually works I was not debating. Thats irrelevant,,changes nothing and it still powers my clock as long as I keep water in the cell. When I say it runs on water,,that means as long as I keep water in the cell it runs,,nothing to complicated there. As to disrespect. You started with disrespect toward me by saying I was a spammer,,and that I was diverting people from more worthy causes,,that my friend is very disrespectful! and as to when and where I post or what topics I get interested or involved in, that is my business, not yours. So dont tell me to get involved or talk elsewhere. And that last remark, where you said you will waste your time no more with me, like every other sensible person,,that if further being disrespectful. So lets all remember who was disrespectful first. Have a nice day.

As to it running on pure water, it will run on any liquid, even bottled water to tap water, to rain water. In fact other liquids used would increase output, but that would also increase electrode erosion. I only use water alone because it causes the least amount of electrode erosion. This way electrodes can last years, or more.

As it is, one water cell can power one wall clock, which normally would use a single AA battery. I dont think I can recharge a car battery with that. I do know that the more water cells used,,increases voltage and amperage. One water cell equals the voltage of a single AA battery but it does not equal the full amperage of an AA battery. But it will run equal things that normally used an AA battery. I run a digital clock on a single water cell as well. I run three led lights that flash, on three water cells. Two will work but three water cells makes it super bright. I run a rotating stand on a single water cell. I found that using more copper increases amperage, but Im out of copper at the moment, maybe next month or so Ill be stocked up again there and continue further improvements. Im sure if the electrodes were large enough,,and enough of them were wired in series it most likely could recharge a car battery. But I dont have enough materials to make them all nor test it at the moment.

First of all,,regardless of who you are, what i said to the best of my knowledge is the truth. And it works as I stated and i have ran several things using only water for over a year. As far as spam, you seem like the typical attitude I have received from many. I did not say I will sell you what I know, I told what I know, how I think it works,,and it works like I said. As to the no ip thing, I did not even put that there, but to use the No-ip service they place it there. If you know anything about home servers or dns then you would know that. As to defraud, if you are saying the water cell cant be improved or doesn't benefit the world then you obviously spreading disinformation, anything can be improved. And thats why I ask for help to further it. There is nothing wrong with asking that, nor with improving the water cell. And as to benefiting society,,I have benefited from this by buying less batteries and polluting the land fields a little less by doing so, which benefits the environment. I mean after all, most everything around us is built on top of land fields even if from ages past. I dont really like the idea of that,,all that pollution right under us, nor the concept Im adding more pollution to a land field, which some day someone will build upon. There is nothing wrong if others want to do the same, and save a bit of money and pollute the world a little less at the same time. Regardless of the science behind the water cell, or If im wrong in my assumptions of how it works, it still works and water is all thats needed to keep it working..

I heard someone trying to view the live cam,,not sure if it was you or another. I get plenty of viewers. But many cant seem to access it,,so they try over and over. With every access my computer makes a beeping sound to let me know its accessed. Ive found the software i use dont work on all browsers. I know it works on firefox, and I think ie as well, its javascript based as well, was free so what can I say. It does bother me when some try to view it again and again and they cant, they will try like 15 or so many times even sometimes, I could have mentioned only certain browsers can view it, but I forget. My apologies.

Yes its legit, and I explained the answers I thought most would have already on the blinkyblue live cam site. Http://blinkyblue.zapto.org If you think I left any out please tell me. As to a patent, No I cant afford that, Im not sure it can even be patented because its so simple,,and all but free except the electrodes which last a very long time,,and water, which any kind of water would work, from bottled water to tap water to rain water even. Thanks again for your reply,,much appreciated.

Thank you Derek, I get so few replies that are positive and I appreciate it. So many seem to assume Im fake before even trying it. If they gave me half a chance they would know Im telling the truth, and only doing so to possible help our world,,and our children's children's children who will suffer the fate of all our actions by what we have done to this world
