April Maker Challenge 4/30: Jolt Can Voltaic Cell


GET IN MY BELLY!, originally uploaded by John Baichtal.

I'm a Jolt fan. And having the product's battery can on my desk makes me wonder, how easy would it be to turn this bad boy into an actual electrical cell, more inaccurately known as a battery?

(Kids, a battery is multiple cells wired together.)

First of all, the entire outside could be the positive and you could suspend the negative electrode in the center of the can. Would there be any problems with using an electrolyte in the can?

I'm guessing no... but that doesn't mean it would make an awesome battery!
