The present study, reports on the findings of connecting 2 stacks of 48 MFCs and the importance of maturity and acclimation for the anodic biofilms. Furthermore, an attempt is made to emphasize the importance of a universal unit for quantifying power output. Finally, this paper presents data from the smallest MFCs, specifically designed for wastewater treatment. The main aims of this study were to (1) configure a high number of small-scale MFCs (48) to run as a stack for a long period of time (2-years); (2)repeat this process with a new set of MFCs configured as a stack of equal dimensions (units) and compare individual as well as stack performances of both old and new MFC, through polarization experiments under identical conditions; (3) normalize and compare the recorded power output according to the plethora of methods reported in the literature; (4) design even smaller MFCs and investigate their performance.
