Did you know that a potato that has been cooked for at least eight minutes can create a battery ten times more powerful than raw? How insane is that?
Haim Rabinovitch, Professor of science and agriculture did an experiment with several slices of potato quarters which he placed between copper cathode and zinc anode.
These were then connected with wire of course, leading him to discover that these cute little units could be placed in a room with and LED light bulb for up to forty days and continue working with no issue. Isn’t that neat? Free power even in a sense.
This finding is very important for the scientific community, as well as underdeveloped parts of the world. This could bring about many new opportunities for them. The fact that it is potatoes that can do this is even better considering potatoes can grow in most environments.
Please enjoy the video below, I was truly in awe when I watched it myself.
