This question is for another project I'm doing, but I post it here to see what cool ideas you all can come up with.
I'd like to find a way to charge batteries using static electricity. Please don't tell me about eStatic charges not moving, I've heard all that and they do.
The simplistic idea; build up a static charge in something, then discharge it into a battery. The battery voltage can be anything as long as it works - so if I need a 100kV rechargeable battery to handle a 100keV static jolt, then that's fine (battery voltages can be reduced), I would just like to know how this would be possible.
If this topic belongs in a different forum, feel free to move it.
