Thread: Better electrode material? - Gold, silver, titanium, etc... plated, not solid

    Don't use 6AL4V, I have and the aluminum breaks done in the electrolyte. I'll post picks of it when I get home. Titanium should be pure if used. Turns into swiss cheese.

    I agree, even though the benifit might be minimal, every little bit counts.

    ooOOhh you said steel melter electrodes



    What about in truck batteries? (not gel / deep cycle, just normal batteries)
    I've heard about people using batteries as HHO generators, electrodes and all. Brings on an idea

    Since there is acid in batteries, and electricity too, wouldn't it be safe to @$$ume that battery electrodes/plates/connections would be perfect for our uses?

    If so, what the hell are battery inards made of?

    Thanks for the heads up. That just saved me a few bucks

    I think you spelled the link wrong or something.
    ...but I found the exact page you were refering to. Here's the link, and thanks, that's a usefull site.

    Lead and Lead Oxide. I'm not sure this would be very safe.

    I'm not sure how to get rid of the left over acid in a dead car battery, but just tipping it over on the ground is not the greatest idea, since eventually those chemicals will filter through to the ground water, and further down the line, into the lakes, streams, and rivers ... where we get our drinking water.

    How about tipping the acid into a container that already contains an equal amount of a strong alkali?
