Researchers have discovered that it is possible for potatoes boiled for about 8 minutes to create a battery that generates power 10 times more than the normal batteries. An experiment was done by Haim Rabinovitch a professor of science and agriculture using boiled potato slices placed between a copper cathode and zinc anode with a wire connecting them. It was found that this equipment has the capacity to light a room for 40 days with LED lights.
This is a scientific breakthrough especially for those in underdeveloped countries.
Why use potatoes?
Potatoes are used because they very common and can be found in all parts of the world even subtropical and tropical climate. Potato itself cannot generate energy. It is only a bridge connecting the metals thereby allowing electrons to move freely through the wire resulting in electricity generation/production.
