How Does Water-powered Clock Work?
In this water-powered digital clock, water isn’t the direct source of power, but used as the conducting agent to complete the electrical circuit for the clock. There is a set of electrodes inside that extracts energy from the compound particles that reside in water. The electricity is being produced by the difference in electrode potentials of the anode and the cathode which are inserted into the water. A slowly dissolving piece of Zinc is used as the source of energy that powers the clock. Usage life will vary depending on the amount of Zinc, which could be from months to several years. Don’t worry about it since this clock only draws a very small amount of current anyway.
