    Wonder what you actually get?

    Laughed at.

    I immediately discredit any site that has verbage loaded with SEO phrases and long drawn out crap.

    Don't believe it. Total scam. I've seen these claims for years in the renewable energy business. The laws of physics are quite clear, energy is not created or destroyed but merely changes form. Free energy is not free.

    Nikola Tesla was an interesting person. He invented the AC power system that changed the world. We use it every day and take it completely for granted. He also contributed greatly to the birth of radio comunications, which continues to change our world every day (as I write this on a WiFi connected iPad). We owe him much.

    He also inspired many, many crackpots. Which continues to this day, apparently.

    Funny. And sad. The video claims whoever owns this 'forbidden knowledge' will become wealthy and solve the world's energy problems. Then they offer to sell it to you. Excuse me? If it really works ... heck, preaching to the choir here.

    Looks like you get four capacitors, four germanium diodes, and some wire. There's a link embedded at the website you posted to this video:




    Simple concept. We're surrounded by transmitters that saturate the electromagnetic spectrum with energy. Put up an antenna of random length and connect it to a circuit that rectifies (and apparently doubles) the ac picked up by that antenna and you can get "free" energy at someone else's expense. I believe that circuit would be well-aided by a good ground connection.

    Sounds like it would fit in a Roadster glovebox. Hook it up the the battery to drive for free!

    Might run out if you own in Antarctica though. Probably need to have a solar panel on your hood to get across the tundra.

    Interesting idea for capturing natural static electricity. This is ultimately solar energy, since the sun is the source of all weather activity.

    Hey, that SCR should be labeled anode, gate, cathode, not emitter, base, collector.

    Right, and if you build a few thousand of these you might actually get enough power to be of use.
