Crazy idea

Amos latteier, called the “Best Fake Professor in Portland,” and a self-confessed lover of pigeons, made a battery out of 500 pounds of potatoes. Each potato generates about 0.5 volts and 0.2 mA current, he explains. Amos connected groups of potatoes in series to increase voltage, and then connected these groups together in parallel to increase amperage. The entire 500 pound battery generated around 5 volts and 4 mill amperes. He then hauled the battery onto a truck and drove it around town, powering a sound system off it.” Don’t eat potatoes after using them for a battery,” Amos advises.
