    Does anyone know if there would be a way to increase the amount of power one of these could produce? Could be a useful if all other power sources fail.

    I think it might be better to just stock up on lithium batteries. Attempts to recreate the original design didn't produce much power at all. Still a fascinating find though.

    Go solar for charging small things like cellphones or rechargeable AA and AAA batteries. I rigged up an old car battery maintainer to recharge anything that can be charged off a USB port. Even here in the northwest the sun is not likely to fail unless you are talking asteroid impact, nuclear winter or supervolcano scenarios...:)

    One good source of power that was used in our space program and can be done with only a good understanding of the process for a down-scale app. would be hydrogen fuel cells. Check out a book "Fuel Cell Projects For The Evil Genius".
