What materials do you need to make a fruit battery?
To make the battery you will need:
- Citrus fruit (e.g., lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit)
- Copper nail, screw, or wire (about 2 in. or 5 cm long)
- Zinc nail or screw or galvanized nail (about 2 in. or 5 cm long)
- Small holiday light with 2 in. or 5 cm leads (enough wire to connect it to the nails)
What fruit or vegetable can charge your phone?
