How to Make Your Own Fuel Cell With Materials In Your Own Home

The popularity of fuel cells is increasing because there are a lot of people who are trying to find ways in which to use fuel that simply does not require the use of oil. Believe it or not, you can actually make your own fuel cells in your own home and use them as an alternative source of energy. These can be a lot more desirable than batteries because they can be used for many different things and they don't have to be recharged nor do they need to be replaced. Also the byproduct of the fuel cell is hydrogen and not a toxic byproduct like other energy sources. They also will save you money in the long run.

Things you will need to create your own fuel cell:

  • 12 inches of platinum wire
  • Wire clippers
  • A nail
  • A battery clip
  • Scissors
  • Battery (needs to be a match for the battery clip)
  • Tape
The first thing you will do is to take the wire and clip it in half with your wire clippers. You really should try to make sure that the wire is platinum but if you can't get that kind of wire then copper wire should work.

Next you will need to wrap your wire around a nail. You will need to do this with both sides of the wire that you clipped. This is going to give you two coils of platinum or copper wire. After you have coiled the wire you will need to cut the lead wires of the battery. You will need to measure around ¾ of the way from the battery and then cut the leads there.

Take the battery leads and scrape off the insulation by using your scissors. You need to do this before you pull the insulation off of the leads. You don't need to cut very deep and you need to be very careful when you are using your scissors when you are doing the cutting.

After the leads are exposed you will need to wrap them around the coiled up wire that you set up earlier. This wire will act as your electrodes. Take your tape, which is best if it is electrical tape and tape the wires that come from the leads to the wire coils. Do this about half the way down the platinum or copper wires.

Now, take your new battery and attach it to your battery clip. Make sure to look for any bubbles in the battery water. This will mean that the molecules are being broken apart and this is what you want. Once you are done with this you can add your fuel cell to any electronic device that you might have. For instance connect a battery powered radio to your leads to see if the cell is working correctly. If the radio works then it means you just created your first fuel cell.
