The author of the photos himself. This method is not new but was not used a lot, at least now you know if you find yourself somewhere where is no electricity but there are some nails, wires and lemons you can make your call home or just listen to some music.

  1. This reminds me of physics class. How many amp does a lemon have??

    Do those 17 lemons charge the ipod entirely from none to full??

  2. Small 9volt cell inside each lemon. Young scientist wishes for lemonade after experiment.

    He should worry more about insulation on his diagonal cutters. Plastic wrap makes not safe electrical insulation.

  3. Nice MacGyver style of powering things.
    There is only one little problem… considering geographical location of Russia, lemons are probably more expensive than batteries. Not to mention that one is not likely to find lemons naturally growing there. 🙂 The good news is: apples could be used instead of lemons. 🙂

  4. Those lemons have pretty high internal resistance, so the current is very low. It said what player could charging only about one minute.
