    My adventures building a Zinc-Bromine battery

    Anyone still getting after it with this battery research? I came to the same conclusion as @danielfp248 that Zn Br cells are not a viable or safe homemade solution. Zn I2 is a logical next step. Here are some other ideas to consider: 1) Zinc Iodine: Use of propylene carbonate as complexing...

    My adventures building a Zinc-Bromine battery

    Yes! It does a lot. I work full time as active duty military and I do this stuff on the side on weekends. Ill share my next trials in a few days with actual data. For reference the electrodes ive made with the condutive plastic laminated copper mesh and graphite felt are 8x8 cm in a small...

    My adventures building a Zinc-Bromine battery

    For sure, Ill look over your blog, I think I remember seeing instructions for the build. Ill take any documents / tips you have. For testing, Ive already purchased a ZKETECH battery tester using their free software (EB Tester v1.85)

    My adventures building a Zinc-Bromine battery

    Also I agree... I do not want to have to short the cell periodically to make it usable. I thought maybe it could be a way to help troubleshoot why your cells are breaking down. If you reset and see a return to some previous level, you might be able to rule out the BSA decomposition as an...

    My adventures building a Zinc-Bromine battery

    These are great points dan. Do we know at what voltage hydrogen is generated? If the cell is properly sealed is there an internal pressure at which the hydrogen will recombine? As to the conductive plastic, the thruplane resistance is very low especially since I only use one layer between the...

    My adventures building a Zinc-Bromine battery

    Fellas, My name is Kevin and I'm glad to join the struggle here on this thread. I've been experimenting with ZnBr2 batteries for about 6 months. I have a math background but no formal chemistry. I have a lot to share but I'll try to summarize my key findings: 1) Internal Resistance: This is...
