Can you imagine to live a life without access to electricity. We think that you can not. Also, we can not living without electricity. Imagine that you have to using batteries to get power or candles as lighting option. It is impossible, but some people that live in isolated places use them on a daily base.However, there is another way to create lighting in any place and this solution will certainly amaze you.
A research has discovered that a potato which has been cooked for eight minutes creates a battery 10 times more power than raw.
Haim Rabinovitch is a leader of this experiment and he decided to use a potato, zinc anode, copper cathode and wire to prove his theory.
He put the potato slices right between the anode and cathode and established a connection with the help of the wire. The final result was amazing! With these elements you can create light for a room (with the help of LED lights) for at least 40 days!
This discovery is very important not only for the scientific world, but also for the underdeveloped parts of the world, offering them so many opportunities and possibilities.
The only question at this point is: Whether potato is the only vegetable that can be used for this purpose ?
There are two things related to potatoes that make them special. First and foremost, potatoes can grow (almost) anywhere in the world, even in tropical and subtropical climate, and the second is that you can find them in abundance everywhere.
You should know that the potato is not a basic source of energy – it serves just as connection between the aforementioned metals. Potatoes give the electrons a chance to circulate with the help of the wire and create electricity.
