Fruit Energy Sources
The Orange Battery by Caleb Charland Emits a Soft Glow

American artist Caleb Charland continues to experiment with alternate forms of energy with the creation of the Orange Battery. Unlike his past work that involved a slew of different fruit and produce including apples, lemon and limes powering a single lamp, the Orange Battery is a stunning work of art that dissects the common orange.

Peeled and pulled apart, the Orange Battery is like a science experiment gone right. Each orange slice has been impaled with a zinc nail, which produces a chemical reaction between it and the citric acid. A visual treat, it lights up with a soft glow that would act perfectly as a small nightlight for the home.
