We\’re currently on the process of charging the cell. I would like to tell you how we have set up the charging process and what we\’re getting to make sure that we\’re doing things right and get an idea of how much we have left until the cell is properly charged.
We\’re using Method #1. We\’re applying around 64 V which produced 1 Amp during the first charges. I have removed the amp-meter from the system now.
We apply this tension for 3 minutes, 6 times per day. We\’re using a digital timer to prevent overcharging or forgetting to charge.
We\’re using a good brand of spring water in Spain. It has low salts content.
Current state of the cell and the water
As of today we have been charging for 5 days.
When the charging circuit is on some come out of the top of the cell. No foam and no brown water is formed.
Bubbles have formed around the cell. The water has turned to some yellow/greenish color.
The residual voltage of the cell is around 1.1 V, 3 hours after the last charge.
Some brown drops were leaking out of the bottom of the cell. I guess that is because of the oxidation of the threaded rod.
Is our set up correct? Is there any adjustment we should do?
How long should we go on with this charging cycle? Do we use residual voltage as guidance?
Do we repeat the charging cycle with the same water o with new water? How many times?
Thank you in advance for your feedback and insights!

For some reason, I missed this post.quote :
that\’s normal. It\’s due to impurities either in the water (more likely) or coming from the metal.quote :
1.1 Volt residual voltage after 3 hours is good.
(you can also leave a D-cell 1.5 battery across the cell at all times as well, to hold this potential.)
are you charging the water in a car cell? I can see that is probably the case with the brown drops coming out of the bottom.quote :
Having some pictures might be helpful too.
As far as I can \”see\” from reading about your practice, it sounds good.
Once you have charged the water and it is having bubbles that are really staying in the water, like there is an increased surface tension in the water, then you can charge less frequently, just to maintain that water charge.
Are you applying this cell to an engine? or just for healing purposes?
You do want to filter the water if it gets scummy.
