Thread: Why dont I hear of people using this?!

  1. Exclamation Why dont I hear of people using this?!

    I have thought of something that I am wondering why I have not heard of anyone using this?
    Why not use a sepperate battery to mount in your vehicle to power your hho cell? Then you would not be using your engine to power your hho cell and therefore you can use more hho without using more fuel to produce it. Then you just charge the battery up when you get home.

    This has already been done but I cannot remember the details. If the drain on the battery is not too much this maybe worth a try.

    You can get 100AH marine battery for like $100 or somewhere around that. That would run a 20A hho cell for 5 hours!

    That sounds good. Few questions here:
    -How much does such a battery weigh?
    -How long does it take to charge a fully depleted battery?

    Default I have researched this before...

    Here is a pretty darn good reference table:

    http://www.lifelinebatteries.com/marinedeepcycle.php


    For [email protected] => 5 hours you would need the GPL-30HT which weighs a whopping 96 lbs!
    http://www.lifelinebatteries.com/marineflyer.php?id=4

    If you don't mind recharging every night, a less expensive alternative could be the GP-24T
    http://www.lifelinebatteries.com/marineflyer.php?id=1

    Granted you are using your car only for traveling to work and back (where a round trip is 2 hrs max) and max draw is 20A X 12V = 240 W

    It would be smarter to go with ~15A max draw using a very efficient reactor.

    Excellent info you got there Stevo. Thanks!

    Good info Stevo thank you. If you want to spend more money you could build a lithium Ion battery bank to power your cell which would only weigh a fraction of a lead acid, but would cost much more. or you can buy a 100ah lithium car battery that has a life of 10 years, unfortunately it costs $1700.

    IF you subscribe to the 'less is more' HHO club, then some of your worries will be alleviated. Just start at 250mLPM per 1000cc (1/4LPM of HHO to 1L) of engine displacement to see the benefits of HHO. Your battery problems would then be solved, right?

    Btw.. I subscribe to this club because I have seen where the more is less theory works -I used it on my car.

    I also prescribe to less is more but I love when someone tries something different. More knowledge to add to my internal database.

    but the more hho you add to your engine the less gasoline you need to inject in the cylinders, right? Maybe I am wrong here but I thought the reason you only used 1/4lpm per liter of engine displacement was because of the strain on the alternator above this limit and the extra engine hp used to create the power to run your hho cell would not be replenished from the hho produced.

    What is the less is more, is that a website?
