What You'll Need:

  • 3 pcs. of 9-volt batteries
  • 4 pcs. of alligator grips attached to 2 pcs. of 2 ft. of electric wire
  • 2 pcs. of 999.99 pure silver wire
  • 1 cup of distilled water
  • 2 drops of saline

Step 1: Connect the Batteries to One Another

Start by putting two 9-volt batteries beside one another with the smaller circular terminal or the positive side on the left side for both batteries. This means that the larger octagonal or hexagonal terminal or the negative terminal of the battery on the left is directly beside the positive terminal of the battery on the right.

Now, connect the two by snapping the terminals of the third battery unto the two batteries you placed side by side.

Connect the positive terminal of the third battery to the negative terminal of the battery on the left. Additionally, link the negative terminal of the third battery to the positive terminal of the battery on the right.

Step 2: Attach the Alligator Grips to the Batteries

Next, grab your two pairs of alligator grips. Connect one alligator grip from each pair to the free poles of your batteries. The other side of each pair of alligator grips should still be free at this point.

Step 3: Dip the Silver Wire in the Water and Add Saline

Now, attach a piece of silver wire to each of the free alligator grips. Check to see that the alligator grips are clamped tightly on the silver wires.

Now, dip each piece of silver wire in the cup of distilled water and add 2 drops of saline. Make sure to leave at least an inch between each of the silver wires.

Step 4: Wait Until the Colloidal Silver is Ready

At this point, the positive wire should start releasing silver ions that will cloud the water. The negative wire, on the other hand, will start forming bubbles.

When you see that the water turns cloudy-whitish, then your colloidal silver is ready. You may now disconnect the apparatus and clean the blackened silver electrode before using it again.

    Just came across this and am very grateful for the information, however, even on a second read-through, it seems evident to me that the author needs to proof the directions for clarification and for the reader to avoid mistakes and/or potential injuries/illness prevention later on down the road. Beginning at the beginning, check for errors such as the discrepancy between the battery placement picture and the placement directions. Next steps also entails confusion. Best to research the process on other sites before potentially making a serious mistake, however, huge thanks to the author for providing the basic idea!

    I have been making C-Silver for many years. I started with the 9 volt battery method and progressed to my own :lab:. I now use a power Supply, magnetic circulation and TDS meter. A few other things but the battery method will not allow for a controlled solution. Granted it will make a silver bearing solution but PPM is hard to control. Silver size is also difficult to control. At best with the battery method you can get about 10-15 ppm in solution. But again size matters! On average I get a solution averaging about 90 ppm. Strong yes! But my solution has cleared up family members Strep throat, Sinus infections and I use it on my dogs wounds. Crazy German Shepard he is. I make it up and put it into small sprayers. Easier to deliver through the nasal passage for internal use.
