I actually just checked to see if anything new was on this forum and the funny thing is what you suggested is exactly what I did this morning what a coincidence. Thanks for contributing tho.
Is that the Joule Thief circuit, you are referring to? Or are you using an electrolyte, and separate into compartments?

The screenshot mentions an AC source. That would seem to exclude all batteries.

That confused me too. I sort of ignored it, in the absence of any serious description of the equipment.

I wonder why people assume that everyone knows what they are talking about when they want help.
If we only had :
"I am trying to do an experiment with the following equipment . . . . . . . . in order to achieve . . . . . . . . .. Here is a diagram of my setup . . . . . . . ."
And we would have been cooking on gas on the very second post of the thread.

Maybe, instead of electrochemical sources, we are dealing with many rectifiers, connected to the same AC source. Exactly the same thing applies when there is a 'shared' Ground.
Pleeeeease, OP, tell us some more details. I am losing sleep over this one. :frown:
