Default Re: Anode surface area

There are many factors which affect efficiency. Amperage, distance between cathode and anode, strength of electrolyte being a few. Many use pieces of rebar as anodes successfully, but all other things being equal, you should see improved results using plate over just a rod or two. Most collectors who have constructed larger more substantial rigs go for plate on both sides or a 360 anode arrangement.
