I love potatoes. It does not matter whether they are baked, boiled, mashed, and scalloped or the French fries. Potatoes make a delicious meal. They have nutrients that are beneficial to the body. They contain Vitamin C, Vitamin D, magnesium, zinc, potassium, and calcium. Also, potatoes are inexpensive, accessible to most of the people and have a long shelf life.
Well, potato haters, I have news that may amaze you. The humble potato you love to hate can light your room.
Scientists at Hebrew University can confidently report that the potato can be transformed to a powerful battery. A raw potato produces energy. Boiling the potato for eight minutes will produce ten times the energy.
The potato is not the energy source. Connect to metal rods to the potato and a chemical reaction occurs. It releases energy that lights a bulb.
For the potato kit, you will need:
- Alligator clips
- A potato

The potato LED kit can light a room for 40 days. It is an idea that poor and underdeveloped nations can use. After all, the potato is an abundant plant globally.
Besides eating the potato, use it to light up your world. Watch the video below for the full details.
