Let us suppose for a moment that we are on another planet. One with no magnetic fields whatsoever. Would electricity work or would it only trinkle small amounts ?

I would think battery power would be ok? but not sure if there would be a way of generating power?

i think not. power may not work all together without a magnetic field.

If a magnetic field is chaotic it would be like EMP bursts constantly going off so in this case I would think that they would have to develop an alternate means of power - one not subject to the laws of magnetic fields.

On the other hand, would life as we know it be able to exist on such a planet? After all Humans are a mass of electrical impulses, which are constantly travelling to and from the brain through the body.
We also generate that electricity in our own bodies, so would the absence of a global magnetic field affect human life?

This is a most interesting question. But there is some life here which actually relies on chemicals for their nerves to interact. Most insects seem to work this way - bees, ants, ect,..

Truly it would. Can you imagine how they would be racking their brains trying to to figure out a way to communicate with a giant grasshopper ?

yeah. but back on topic. there is only one race i can think of which does not need electricity for power on any given scale. not going to say what race this is only that they use a very unusual type of power. tricon the kind which makes warp drive look like total junk.

You know it is also possible that some races can produce their own power, like eels.  In this case they would not need to worry about it.

that is what i meant. this race uses a form of power that is self generated. not like anything known this same tricon based technology can be used in engines weapons shields or otherwise. at least as far as i know.
