How do you power a coil without short circuiting the battery?

I have a caduceus wound coil that supposedly won't get hot, I know if you connect both terminals together the battery will short circuit. So how do you send current through a coil safely? Thankyou

The coil is resistive, thus it offers a viable load and is not a short, in theory ;) But, I'm not sure about the 'heat up' part, why are you trying to heat it up? You might want to Google caduceus coils a bit before you dive head first into what is usually a game of smoke and mirrors ...

I'm not trying to heat it up I just want current passing through it. So it would be safe to connect it up to a battery?

Now you say

What are you attempting to do with this coil? Hooking it up to a battery isn't going to do much of anything but drain the battery, and yes possibly 'short' out the battery...

Apparently, this coil produces scalar waves, it's an experiment.. So what I'm asking is, will it make the battery explode or destroy it or something?

I have already answered this question tomorrow.

It's probably not much more dangerous to connect to a battery than an equivalent length of wire. There are numerous web sites that will tell you the resistance of a given length of any size wire. From this determine the current and then the power dissipated. You need enough length of wire (or small enough voltage) to ensure that the resistance limits the current to a value that allows the heat to dissipate without large temperature increases or even melting the wire.

free magnetic energy, perpetual motion, purported interactions outside the laws of physics are just a waste of space on the forum

Who ever said the laws of physics are correct? Newton? I go by Teslas theories..
