Nowadays, electrical energy is a source of basic human needs, which continues to increase with the increase in population, both in the household sector, government agencies and industry. With the increase in excessive use of electricity, it can produce emissions, and also the carbon produced will certainly have an impact on global warming because electricity is mostly still using fossil-based energy for that the use of other alternative energy is very helpful to reduce dependence on the use of fossil fuels. One of the things that attracts the attention of researchers today is using renewable energy in an effort to reduce the use of fossil energy. Among the most common alternative energies found is water, so this research focuses on designing dry cell type HHO (Hydrogen Hydrogen Oxygen) Generaor technology with water electrolysis which will produce hydrogen gas. The HHO generator functions to break down water (H2O) into hydrogen atoms and oxygen atoms which became known as HHO gas or Oxy-Hydrogen. Testing the gas flow HHO Generator will use NaCl and there is a reservoir tube to see the rise and fall of water from the gas produced. NaCL used in the size of 20 grams, 50 grams, 75 grams, and 100 grams dissolved in 500 cc of water. From the results of this study, variations in NaCL affect the release of gas bubbles in the reservoir tube where the hydrolysis test of 500 cc of water with 100 grams of NaCL at a time of 180-210 seconds produces 175 cc of gas.
