Zinc/Carbon Bedini Earth light with 2nd transistor and solar cell

Here is a video of the John Bedini Earthlight with solar cell. In this one We are using a Dupont #900 water filter (#800 is a carbon paper wrap) with Zinc strips and distilled Alum water. The LED shuts off when there is the correct amount of light. The Zinc is from a sheet sheared into strips and soldered together. It makes only 1volt but as you can see it has plenty of current to run this circuit. The Magnesuim ciruit would leave only about .6volts under this load but the Zinc under load has .7 volts. I have not checked the current draw yet.
