Build Your Own Metal Air Fuel Cell With An Educational Kit by Walt Barrett

  For several years now we have been experimenting with a couple of types of metal air fuel cells.  Once a person learns the principals of these units by kit building it is quite simple to scale up these educational projects to a more useful size that can be used to run reading lamps, charge computer batteries, run radios, and even run small water pumps and electric bikes.  These cells can be built utilizing scrap metal, and off the shelf inexpensive plastic parts.  They will run on several different types of electrolytes that are mostly water and produce power for weeks at a time if maintained properly.  They do not use any hydrocarbon fuels, or alcohol, and will even run on our salt water formula which is calibrated for maximum life of the cells. A testing meter is included with each kit.  We can provide kits for several sizes.
  The proceeds from these kit sales will be used to start a full scale manufacturing operation for these fuel cells in the USA.  Also a portion of the profits will be donated to Kiva.org who makes small business loans to the poor of the world including the USA.
