When Life Gives You Lemons…

When life gives you lemons, charge your electronic devises!

In what looks like a page taken straight out of the guide to surviving the inevitable zombie apocalypse, some enterprising young people have figured out ways to charge iPods, phones, and more using nothing but lemons, potatoes, and other natural means.

By placing zinc and copper wires in the food turned battery, the acids in them will create a minor charge… and we do mean minor.  If you were to, for example, try to charge your iPod with a lemon, potato, orange or onion, you would need to charge it for 5000 hours and, even then, the charge would only last 30 minutes.

But hey… still a cool experiment.  A single lemon is more than enough to power an LED or an LED digital clock!
