Salvaging Parts: Some Strategies.

It was cost effective from the standpoint that for power consumed, plus my investment on the gun and an estimated value of parts amortized over one hour was worthwhile (no excel spreadsheet for those wishing to see the documentation, but I suggest trying it yourself.), versus the power consumed to attempt removal, the power required, etc- the heat gun won by a landslide.

The way to Test “Free Energy” Items

And in all sincere honesty- NONE of the free energy systems I have been critical of thus far can pass the test of my coffeemaker. Continue reading

Making CFL’s and LED lights work on PIR systems

What this resistor does is to replace the resistance that was the incandescent filament. Continue reading

Atmospheric Power Tap: Fact or fiction? We shall see.

I came across it while looking for information that led to the capacitive charger circuit I blogged about earlier this year. Some called this next arrangement a “Capacitive Charger” but it really isn’t that at all. In the realm of “free energy,” this one is about as close to realistic as most of those concepts get. Continue reading

Some useful references I have found over the years and some useful notes

…but perhaps most important are the Data sheets, Application Notes and “Suggested designs” from the manufacturers themselves. Sometimes sample circuits are presented in the Data sheets, otherwise look to Application Notes. Some of the Application notes are even compiled into a book in such a way that the book could be used as a textbook… Continue reading

Capacitor, Capacitive Battery Charger Circuit.

My preliminary battery chosen was a motorcycle battery that had been sitting outside over winter, and was likely 4 to 7 years old and therefore an excellent candidate for sulphated plates. The charger itself is nothing more than an industrial bridge rectifier I could only infer was a 9 Amp 900 volt PIV as I could not locate a datasheet. The capacitor was a 250 VAC, 3 microfarad capacitor- non-polarized. That was it. Not counting cord or wires. The capacitor was wired to the line side of the mains power, in the event of a failure, it was the shortest potentially exposed path for AC current in the event of failure. Continue reading

Miscellaneous MOSFET notes.

I mentioned early on in this blog that other MOSFETs could work, and they will work in most cases as long as they are in circuits that are within their peak ratings. Continue reading
