How does this video have 21.6 million views in a year? Clearly all but the first and last nails are meaningless if not short circuiting and wasting electrical potential. I guess gullible clueless people love this sort of hocus pocus. But I will give him this - he is probably making a good living from YouTube publishing this bullshit.

I have to admit, his accent got me within about 3/4 seconds, terrible Russianesque thing, and then it started to round off like a north American/Canadian, weird. Anyway, so has been revealed, total scam! It doesn't and wouldn't possibly work, and who happens to be walking around with all these things anyway, survival kit my ass, a box of matches or perhaps even a lighter, bought for 20p in the shops would be much more space saving, better still, a Zippo, that can light in the wind, or an electric one that you can pick up for peanuts too...this is total draconian non sense!

You kept saying they were copper clips. But they really look like brass clips.

Fake. Completely fake.

The clips look like brass rather than copper.

fake as hell I promise , look into it people. electronics and more guy proves it

Author Hardtop Harry ( ago)
After reading a lot of comments it seems that the consensus of opinion is that this will not work. I don't know much about electronics, so, for the sake of argument, could someone just assume that the lemon is capable of producing the necessary power, so how would you wire it?

(I do know that you don't require a lot of voltage; when I was a kid I had a 1.5 volt battery, a big one, the size one uses in a Dolphin torch only mine was 1.5 v, not 6. I I see to run a wire across the terminals and light cigarettes from it. I couldn't get it to work on a cylindrical battery like a AAA right up to a D size. So I know there is more afoot than voltage. That's about all I know)

He has made a battery with a lemon! Then he used the electric potential to generate enough current in the steel wool to heat it to the ignition point of the paper. Come on people let's have some intellectual rigour in our YouTube video titles.

Ah, but can you burn down a house with your combustible lemon? That's the real question.

Author Jeremy Worthen ( ago)

Author Anthony Saponaro ( ago)
A Lemon ?
Think about it
There aint an ice balls chance in hell a single lemon will produce 5 volts.

Author Absterge ( ago)
What is your accent?

Author Liva Bosse ( ago)
We actually tried that at school, and while it is true that you can produce about 5 V with the lemon, the resistance is so high that you get only something like 200μA. But to actually light something, you probably need 2A. This can't be true.

Author Michael ( ago)
I call BS.  You did not even wire that correctly for any voltage.  You have shorted each clip and nail and did not even hook the last 2 up.  So I call complete BS.

If you can't find a lemon and nails in the wild then a cigarette lighter works too.

Author Jason S ( ago)
Well done, Sir.   Classic anode/cathode battery from acid in a lemon.  Awesome!  Hell...if we put a few of these in series we could make a 12V battery and power a lot of common electronics.  Pretty incredible.  I wonder if vinegar would work as a battery acid.  If one were not fortunate enough to have a lemon in cold country...

Author Chris Coldwater-Canada ( ago)
Where the hell you will find lemon from on Siberia and those cooper and zinc clips, nails in total wilderness ? Beside this , the project is nice.

You're better off just using an actual battery... which is more likely to be on hand than a lemon in the frozen tundra... all you have to do is touch steel wool with a 9-volt battery and it lights right up.

FAKE! You have a car battery in the cement cylinder.

Author Apliance Guru Eric ( ago)
Total BS. You'd need 40+ lemons to get any kind of reaction. You really only need 2 pins in a lemon then connect the said 40+ lemons in series to maybe get the reaction we saw. This CRH knockoff is a scammer just trying to get views.

Author Love music ( ago)
So you don`t have matches, but you have a lemon!

Author Hinyu EX ( ago)
It is honestly more likely to have a battery than a lemon + copper + zink nails.

Hammer those nails in his balls and see if his prick stands up. 5 volts of power in one lemon. So all Russian cars have 2 lemons instead of a car battery...ingenious.

Author Gahel Guerrero ( ago)
do you really think we are going to have any of this in the wild

Author Michael Bear ( ago)
He looks tasty, and comes with his own lemon. I think I"ll eat him next time he is in my woods. But seriously just buy a lighter when you're in the hardware store looking for copper and zinc nails.

cool story but you can light steel wool with just about anything ... better to touch it to a 5v battery which is probably what was in the lemon

squeezing the citrus oil from a lemon skin into a fire is more fun.

Author davie didgood ( ago)
Yep ... when I'm in survival mode I usually carry all this equipment and seek out citrus trees in the snow instead of carrying matches, lighter or simple flint. Lets take the Chem lab camping!
