I Order You To Pee On This Battery, Soldier


gizmodo.com

If you think your gear runs out of juice at inopportune moments, consider the infantrymen of the world, whose lives depend on their gadgets maintaining a charge. Thus the MetalCell, a magnesium-based battery that charges with salt water. Or urine.

Your wife needs a vibrator?
Wow, and you tell the whole world?
You've got guts soldier!
A little splash on a battery shouldn't be too hard after that.

peace

hornyana_jones.....

Firstly.....I think it lowers the tone of ATS to make comments regarding "your wife's vibrator".

Secondly.....I'm not sure as to the point of your thread, so I struggle for comment.

Therefore, may I please ask you to provide a little more commentary regarding the topic upon which you have posted? (many thanks)

Regards
Maybe...maybe not

The soldier just better hope there is not a kick back or they may be what is getting charge up. That would be as bad and peeing on an electric fence.

I know a man that done that. He walked funny for two days after that.

Some things are funny, and others are crude.

This definitely falls into the funny class.

so wait... we could build a boat that can go forever on the ocean?

now I don't know how much salt is in piss, but I guess that depends on how much you retain, and your intake. So I think piss would be a last resort for charging the battery.

as for the vibrator, we all know women wouldn't even look at men if vibrators could do yard work, fix appliances, and hold a job(that receives income).

Do not get me started on myth busters. I quit watching that show it is a joke. It busted things I know to be true because I either seen it in person or did it my self.

This is not advanced technology, or anything new really. It is just a normal battery. However, it is a good idea...

A common type of battery is a lead-acid battery. It uses lead (metal) and sulfuric acid to make a chemical reaction that releases energy.

There are a lot of different types of metals used, like carbon, copper, silver, and lithium for example. The device in the OP uses magnesium.

There are different types of acid that you can use as well. For instance citric acid from lemons can be used to make a battery. Even purified drinking water can have a high enough pH level to be used for a weak battery. Urine could also be used in a battery, just like the device mentioned.

In lead-acid batteries over time the lead will dissolve. I imagine the magnesium in the magnesium-urine battery will run out too, but will last a few years.

So basically, they reinvented the battery, but this one doesn't come with battery acid. You supply your own.

I bet it has "JUST ADD URINE!" on the box.

But seriously, this is a little evidence that ancient astronauts might have been crash-landing cases.

This tech is excellent for emergency position indicating radio beacon (EPIRB) applications requiring extreme shelf-life and instant, fail-safe activation. It also sends an instant 'pilots alive' signal, just by operating. Very sophisticated.

Get two dissimilar pieces of metal and a piece of paper. Urinate on the paper and place it between the pieces of metal like a sandwich. Touch an LED's legs to each metal plate, and let there be light.
