    Howdy!

    I made a vinegar battery very a few minutes ago. XD

    I made 3 vinegar batteries (series connection) and one more.

    and connect them each other by parrallel circuit.

    EH? can't even light up the LED very brightly.

    It makes you appreciate how much power is stored in commercially made batteries.

    Do you mean like this?

    It's better to remove the extra one on its own because current from the 3 will actually flow backwards through the single one.

    Also see if it gets better if you move the electrodes closer together (don't let them touch).

    No, it's not like that.

    Did you ever have to make a lemon battery cell in school as a child? If you have enough lemons, you can actually charge an iPod. Albeit, connecting the charger to the lemon battery is a bit more complicated than constructing the battery itself.

    Do you have a multimeter?
    If you can get a couple volts try making more and putting them in parallel for more current, or change the batteries so that they have more metal in the vinegar, or try to find a higher concentration of vinegar

    @ Lightfire

    I 'll make the correction, just to prevent bad habits from sticking:
    It's called a multimeter, not multimer.

    I 've been calling a certain software Utilboard instead of Ultiboard. I found it out last week. It's very hard to call it correctly now.
