Amps drawn

I have a home made generator and am having problems with it drawing too much from my battery and causing it to not charge my battery! I have checked all connections to be sure that i am not shorting out any where! What can i do to make it work without killing my battery

Use a 30amp breaker and A PWM

2.4 amps
by: granmar

my 1995 chevy p/u was equiped with a 4 mason jar style wet fuel cells, but am only drawling 2.4 amps. idk if my water/ baking soda mixture is wrong or something else? The system is running at 14.1 volts.

As described before, the production of HHO gas is determined by the number of AMPS the electrolyte draws. You SHOULD use DISTILLED WATER and either NaOH or KOH as the catalyst. Typically, 12-15 amps will create about 1LPM HHO gas (66% H and 33% O - hence the HHO… 2 hydrogens to 1 oxygen)

Each engine liter needs the same amp draw per liter - so a 5-liter engine would use about 3 LPM HHO which needs about 36 - 40 amp draw!

Luck

too much battery drain…

Usually, providing that your vehicle is properly maintained, any properly installed AND operating HHO unit will never overheat or draw too much power!

Having said that, there is every indication that your electrolyte (distilled water and either NaOH or KOH) is far too strong a mix! Typically, the concentration is determined by how many AMPS draw the electrolyte uses. Allow for 12-15 AMPS for each liter of HHO gas produced, ONLY IF your HHO generator is properly configured and constructed!

LPM is the term for "liters-per-minute.

Ideally, you need about 0.5 to 0.7 LPM HHO gas (or 0.36LPM to 0.4.3LPM actual hydrogen - the rest is oxygen!) for each engine liter rating. So… a 4.2-liter engine would need about 2.8LPM HHO gas. Don''t forget, you ARE NOT USING HHO AS A FUEL! Only as a catalyst!!! Many people do not understand this!

If you stick to this guideline, you should optimize your production, cool your HHO generator and free up many AMPS for other needs from your battery's power!

Hi John,

You need to use less catalyst for your generator. You may want to consider a HHO PWM to help control your amps.

Thank You
