Salt Water Powered Kit Car.

Salt Water Powered Kit Car.


The first model car powered by saltwater.

Quantity:  at  £6.50  each

Environmentally safe, non-toxic and clean. The Salt Water Fuel Cell Car is the smallest, cheapest and the first car to be powered by saltwater. (More images & video below). Age 8+

The Salt Water Fuel Cell Car gives children a chance to learn about new forms of clean energy, while building and powering their very own toy: Just add saltwater and go.

Our verdict -
We built one as we needed to test it (we're kids really and couldn't resist it) and they go really well. We found it important to make sure all the plastic burrs were removed completely from the wheels in order for it to run smoothly. It's fast - very fast! Ran great on smooth flooring and carpet.

We mixed a solution of 20/80 salt to water and added a few drops to the fuel cell. It ran for approximately 5 minutes - on only a few drops. We continued to repeat this process and it just kept going. Boredom set in eventually, so we cleaned and dried the fuel cell for another day.

A very clever and interesting toy kit. Construction was straight forward with detailed instructions included.

After activating the fuel cell module with a saltwater mixture, the magnesium metal sheet inside operates the car for about 3-5 hours continuously.

After use simply take out the fuel cell module and rinse with tap water and dry as the magnesium strip may easily and quickly corrode if not cleaned.


  • Dimensions: (L)74 mm x (W)40 mm x (H)14 mm
  • This kit allows you to build your own car that runs on salt water (no batteries required)
  • Includes detailed instruction manual and all parts necessary to build this kit.
  • Excellent choice for a science fair project or gift

This kit includes 3 Magnesium sheets which are consumable items. One sheet can run the car for about 3 to 5 hours.

Age: 8+

Caution - contains small parts.
