The resistor in our diagram below serves as a ballast to reduce the flow of current in the event of shorted silver wires, i.e. when both wires touch each other while connected to the battery.
This is optional if you can make it sure that the two wires don’t meet under any circumstance. One way to do that is to use a non-conductive separator between the silver wires opposite to the terminal block, preferably ceramic, or silicone.
If you already have an ozonizer, you can cut about 2 inches of its silicone hose and put holes on them where you can insert the wires at equal distance all throughout their entire length.
