    Thinking a maybe a 3 pole version on some clamps for pups battery would be cool. Anyone ever made one or think a 12v battery would produce any results? Could make it 110 to plug into the pup.

    WeRJuliIan If it's "Aluminum", why not "Sodum" and "Uranum"?

    Pup battery, yes, though beware of wet ground..a fuse might be a good idea.
    The traditional "lantern battery" would be better... Much less current available...

    110v? Absolutely not. If you're lucky, you will blow a breaker. If not, you'll create either a shock hazard or a fire hazard

    I doubt you'd have much luck with the PUP battery. As for the a/c version, I remember when such devices were sold commercially. They were recalled and sales stopped because they were too dangerous. It would be much safer to take a trip to a local bait shop or go out with a flashlight after a rain and learn how to catch night crawlers. It's not hard when you get the hang of it.

    I used 1/2” rod and bent a 90 degree For handle and sharpened the end you stick in the ground, Cut the female plug off a drop cord. Wrap the Hot wire black or red on the handle with the insulation removed. Tape off the white wire, put a piece of rubber water hose over the handle covering the wire. Plug it in and if you feel a vibrating pulse when you stick it in the ground it’s polarized right, if not swap wires, worms will come out of ground quick.
