Batteries: The Organic iPod/LiO Fire Battery Failures
Monday, October 8th, 2007
In our biggest failure since the WiFi Episode, Systm trys to power an iPod with Lemons and create a Lithium Ion battery fire. Find out what exactly a battery is... and why we want a battery tech breakthrough in the worst way.
Before we start talking battery, let's get two things clear: First, use rechargeable batteries whenever possible. Second, you should properly recycle batteries whenever possible so they don't end up in a landfill.
Ever wonder what exactly a battery is? We have, and in our search for more something with a higher energy to weight ration than a lead-acid battery we started looking around the web.
Can you power an iPod with a chain of Lemons? Not exactly... you need a lot more current than our lemons could generate, tho we had more than enough Voltage. A lemon battery is a fun project to do with the kids, btw.
