See how to make a penny battery today and always have a quick source of power in an emergency. Perfect for small projects like powering a small clock or LED’s light bulbs.
I will start off by saying… obviously, this is not going to be powering anything significant, but I want to share this with you because believe it or not, 10 pennies can light up an LED for over 2 days solid. This could come in very handy if you need a light in the dark. This old school, the fun project could be a great science fair project for kids of any age.
This 10 penny battery can produce around 6 volts. That’s enough to power up to 2 LED’s. Let your imagination run wild and make a few. Check out how to make one 🙂
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
