I have been experimenting with piezoelectricity, mainly with a quartz crystal, and it seems to me like a viable source of power. While piezoelectricity is nothing new.. why is it not used enough? Also, is there a limit on the number of times I can tap on the quartz crystal before it stops generating the electric field?
Edit: Is the voltage generated a function of the size of the crystal?
