Many of you have been asking the question: Which kind of HHO Cell is better, "Wet"-Cell or "Dry"-Cell? Well, you kind of have to break it down into what each type of Cell really is.

First of all, the term "Dry Cell" is a misnomer. It's like calling the cooling system in your vehicle a "dry radiator." A Dry-Cell would more aptly be called a "recirculating-system hydrogen generator", whereas the Wet-Cell can be a "stand alone" generator. Both types of Cells produce hydrogen at varying degrees, the Wet-Cells have no external reservoir that recirculates the electrolyte solution, the Dry-Cells do. The Dry-Cell reservoir holds the bulk of the electrolyte solution as the HHO gasses are siphoned from it, and not directly from the Cell Unit as with the Wet-Cell. The Dry-Cell reservoir also acts as a safety buffer from flashback and with KempCo's Dry-Cell Systems it is the first step in a two-part dryer system to eliminate the electrolyte solution from entering the engine. An additional dryer can also be attached to a Wet-Cell System as well.

Hydrogen assist generators have come a long way in the last few years. Our classic-style Wet Cells have become increasingly more efficient and perform better than when all this got started. Quality Dry-Cells have been almost maintenance free, and while Wet-Cells remain the affordable choice to get started in the use of "hydrogen to assist" generators, it is the Dry-Cells that are becoming the choice for many when dealing with larger engine sizes (especially where limited under-the-hood space is a factor). Where individual Wet-Cells have only an anode and a cathode to perform the electrolysis, Dry-Cells employ "neutral plates" between the charged plates, allowing for more HHO to be produced per amperage being drawn, (a little more free energy).

Dry-Cells used to be more complicated, as well as harder to clean and maintain. When cleaning was necessary, one would generally have needed to take the whole unit apart, clean all of the individual plates, and then reassemble the unit. This would possibly risk damaging the unit's sealing ability. Not anymore! Now the Dry-Cells materials, craftsmanship and electrolyte choice have made them trouble free and a great choice for saving fuel and frustration.
