Re: Zima Zaps
I have a hypothesis here. Improving the conductive
properties of the electrolyte may make a bottle cap
more efficient (reduced ESR, etc.), but I don't think
it can increase capacitance. Capacitance is a
function of the surface area of the conductive plates,
and soap ain't going to change that.
Just Blowing Hot Air. I hope I'm wrong.
