Also I would like to suggest that the batteries might have been used to power up the Pharoes version of the "ark of the covenant". Where do you think Moses got his idea to build his. There are many Egyptian carvings with "ark like" images in them.
Curious... does anyone know the output of one of those batteries, and what you could get out of it if you hooked it up to a capacitor???

As for the capacitor, well, this happens to be your lucky day, since I am studying electrical engineering, I know a little bit about capacitors Capacitors wouldn't have been very hard to build in ancient times (certainly easier than batteries!) You could make a parallel plate capacitor out of two pieces of metal and an insulator. The energy that can be stored in a capacitor is related to voltage, size of capacitor, and the type of material used as a dielectric, and the thickness of the dielectric.

That's a very astute observation. You may be right, because short of magic, it is not possible to turn lead into gold.

Hi! I wanted to ask the EEs something even though is been almost five years since this topic started. Can you use these baghdad batteries for power if there is a shut off from the electric grid due to some catastrophe?

LoL, turning lead into gold is a continuing allegory of the perfection of man, which can only be obtained by a refined society.
People were mislead into believing it was about turning phisical material into a higher form and all the while they were being slowly led up the ladder.
Research Mystery Babylon, or Mystery Schools and the world will begin to make sense. Man has been playing god for sometime......
