  • Some biased iranian, you'll realise just how biased he is from the beginning of the video, the persian capital was ctesiphon not baghdad and ctesiphon was just a relocation of babylon and dur kurigalzu, same thing with baghdad, baghdad was built in 700ad by the abbasids not the persians and it was named (madinat al-salam) at first.

  • Hey angry guy, look at the first lamps or the first electronic stuff we had in the 1800. They used TONS of batteries in series and paralell to power these stuff up (because the batteries where so inefficient). Is it so hard to assume that they did the same 2000 years ago if they had primitive electronics? And look how the absolutely first LED works (1907 I think it was), they could have used it for something like that. Or arc lamps.

  • Isn't it impossible for you to know what they did or did not know? A lot of circular logic and hidden assumptions in your argumenting... stick to engineering, you kick ass at that ;) P.S. not saying anything about Baghdad batteries here, haven't even heard of them before this video, just saying that the arguments used are extremely faulty and don't "prove" anything, or better to say wouldn't persuade anyone with enough critical thinking and knowledge of anything

  • could you make coiloidal silver, with this type of battery

  • The Baghdad “battery” was def not a direct battery they couldn’t have had to use it for anything the more simple explanation . Copper mental takes out sulphates from wine (sulphates are what give you a bad headache) they drank a lot back then and so they probably wanted to decrease the headache and they probably stirred wine with a metal thing just to disturb the wine and then they accidentally left it and forgot about it and then they drank it and realized they didn’t have a headache afterwards and so they took advantage of this and used it again and again

  • That transition to rubbing a pole cracked me up its just perfect. :D Vinegar is a good disinfectant and well being in say a copper container would contain the smells so maybe they used it to clean stuff.

  • If the Baghdad battery isnt a battery then what is it? Its clearly not random that they had everything you need to make a battery next to each other. Even if it cant create enough current to do anything useful its obvious that they knew it was storing energy of some sort.

  • But it clearly shows a bunch of these batteries can make 6volts. So obviously a bit less than bunch of these batteries can make 5volts. And what uses 5volts? USB. Yeah baby! So logically the Bagdad cavedudes and dudettes used the batteries to charge their mobile phones! Clearly if these archaeologists searched a bit harder, they will find a clay Nokia 3310. (Sounds like a job for Indiana Jones!) And I'm sure Eric von Daniken can prove some iron pillar is actually a communication tower. Wake up sheeple! Just watch, 5G will bring about the fall of our own civilisation just as the Bagdad battery caused the collapse of the great Abbasid caliphate and all of Mesopotamia! You have been warned!! Hahahahaha!!! (Where are my pills...)

  • It could have been the first experiment found of a battery or, somebody that kept a copper sheet and iron rod in a jar/urn with some bitumen to keep it air/water tight just because it was fun to hide that type of melted metal shapes. Since when wine is prohibited in Arab countries? Stolen battery?
