    I will try this next time I go grocery shopping and pick up a white onion and gatorade. I've got an old G5 ipod I don't use much, so if it gets fried... oh well.

    Those who say fake should try it before saying so.

    You could also charge it with a clay pot, a stick of copper and lemon juice... You figure it out. haha

    I don't like raw onions so I won't try this, but it will work with potatoes as well most likely.
    It must me a damn good camera trick if it's fake, so I have a simple yes/no self-analysis that we can use to justify its authenticity:

    Did I do, and pay attention to science lessons in school?
    Do I understand the concept of electrolytes from potatoes, onions and batteries?
    Have I tried the method more than once, and have I taken my time? in fact:
    Have I tried the method?!

    If you answer no to all of these questions, think twice before you click "submit reply".
