    Lightbulb Read Only if You Have an iPod.
    I don't have an iPod yet, so I don't know it this will work for your iPod.

    Note: This video has - Views: 1,973,197 and Honors: 17

    So it must be of some good use for you, if you have an iPod.

    How to Charge an iPod using electrolytes...



    Btw, I did tried on my 80's Beeper today, but I only got halve of the LCD panel to light up.

    The principle is sound. Many (many, many) years ago in science classes I used to demonstrate the flow of electricity between two dissimilar metals in an acidic medium. With copper and zinc rods stuck into a lemon we could read the voltage produced on a multimeter. But there was not a strong enough current to light even a tiny lightbulb. Do a Google for "lemon battery" or something similar and you should find many examples...

    I could not, however, have done that in class with an iPod. They hadn't been invented yet.
