Now the only thing different is that I'm running My oscillator circuit which I know returns back to the Alum cell. But I think Fausto has said the same thing in advise he gave someone here about oscillators. The Magnesium if pure should not do that, unless you are using some contaminated water in the mix of which I have found to be true. What Alum are you using as I use the food grade only. I do not agree with Ibpointless about using jelly of any kind as that is not the answer here to this problem. I have not had that happen and we run the cell day and night. The normal rate of Galvanic action is around 1 to 2% in a bad condition but as this happens it changes the mixture and it becomes very caustic to the magnesium and it eats away very fast almost as if you added table salt. so as this takes place you should see good power from the cell and then it will just die.
The next thing is how could you smell that if everything was new , did you use a carbon pole from a old carbon zinc battery? If you did you have caused the problem. If you do that then you must clean it and bake it and clean it again. soak over night in hot water rinse the next mooring and do it again until nothing is left.

well.... i think i have brain pain... im using the activated carbon, (which claims to be pure) not the battery carbon, im also using the food grade alum as you said, i sensed the amonia smell as i added water... it does not happen with the rochelle-epsom+carbon mix... fausto had the same results, very strange. i try to replicate as accurate as i can but it is not always possible... i would love to get the pure elements but alfa aesar does not ship to individuals, they only ship to labs and companies, not residential addresses. the mg im using claims to be 98% pure, the new one i got from a company that fausto recomended... it lasts very long unlike the ribbon, which on some cells it lasts for months and in others corrodes by the next day... i have seen some strange things as well, for example, using the same mix and the same build on 4 cells, they all behave different, and its the exact same mix with the exact same elements... thanks john for the advice, cheers
