  • 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...)

  • A long time ago I heard they found these batteries inside altars and other holy objects. So maybe people used it to zap people and feel a connection to god.

  • 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?

  • I think they DID understand it was a battery, or to them "lightening in a bottle". They could have even used the battery for something like acupuncture, cause I mean they understood how that worked in ancient times so maybe they were able to feel a slight tingle from this thing and thought it felt good, or maybe it was just something for entertainment like a curiosity or a toy. Just to say "hey, check this out, this feels funny" and that's it. Either way I don't think they were so stupid they didn't realize what they did. The battery was built in such a way that would require planning and built purposefully in that manner. If that wasn't the case then they would have just wrapped an iron rod with copper and stuck in some grape juice. But no, they made a pitch stopper for it, left room between the rod and the copper and everything. They may not have knew WHY it worked but they understood HOW to make it work and what they were doing. We don't give ancient cultures enough credit. They weren't idiots, they were able to understand cause and effect from simple observation. I mean they figured out stuff about the stars that we didn't know until the invention of the telescope for Christ's sake.

  • i know what Baghdad battery was mad for: the guy who made it just liked the feeling of putting his tongue on it and feel that bit tingling. he just found out it by accident and made it. imagine if it was developed and 2000 years ago they have electricity, we would be living in the future like 2000 years from now.

  • they may have used the power generated for stimulation of any kind...Or they may have had an addiction to shocking the tongue like a 9 volt

  • I wonder if it was used to store food or drink? Since copper does kill bacteria and viruses, it may have just used to make sure what ever food stuff would not spoil as quickly.

  • Sorry BOOM, You don't know what they knew, 2000 years ago.. They weren't stupid.. The Baghdad Battery was the first Free Energy devise.. The Gray Aliens taught the Ancient People how to make energy.. The Great Pyramids were actually an Energy devise.. It gathered energy from the Earth's energy.. Back then, the Earth was Flat, All the great wars, destroyed the Knowledge Ancient People collected in Egypt's Great Library of Alexandria.. Since then, People have got dumber.. Maybe more educated, but, certainly NOT more Intelligent..
