    Fruits are pretty expensive in my part of the world, so I'll use a charger instead ;)

    Now I understand why there are so many articles about apple products exploding and self-igniting.
    But yes, better test this on ipod than PC.

    These fruit battery experiments use fruits, copper nails (positive terminal), and zinc nails (negative terminal), yet I heard no mention of this in the video. As shown in the image below and mentioned on the website I linked to, "Citrus fruits have an acidic content, and the more acidic it is, the better it is for conducting electricity. This is the reason why even though the nails were not touching each other, your fruit battery still worked! The fruit contains positively charged ions. When you inserted the galvanized or zinc nail into the fruit, the negatively charged ions or the electrons started to move from the fruit to the zinc nail thus leaving the protons in the fruit. This transfer of electrons generates electricity as soon as you attach the wires to the nail, and the bulb lights up!".

    The end result from following the instructions in that video is that you now have banana chunks stuck in your USB cable.

    What's next, how to charge your phone with lightning?

    better :p
    No it does not charge the phone like that. The voltage difference needed to initiate the circuit is much more higher than whatever voltage difference that claims to generate lol. Btw, if you try with some lemon ( not lime) ( 3-4 large size) and nails and connect them serially, you might get some voltage difference which can lite an LED


    That will actually be brilliant! We will never ever have shortage of electricity if someone could store the energy generated from lightning :D
