Title: Parallel Charging Shows Overunity
Post by: ibpointless2 on January 11, 2011, 06:05:11 PM
I know that putting the word â€œoverunityâ€ in a title maybe a bold claim but what would you call a simple system that has more voltage over time?

We all know that capacitors when shorted out will give a bounce back voltage when the short is removed. That effect is not what iâ€™m talking about, the effect iâ€™m dealing with has more to do with the captret effect. The captret effect is really become many things, but the one weâ€™re dealing with is the self charging when using capacitors. Many people who had played with the captret circuit such Plengo, who is doing great work with the captret tesla switch, have seen a self charging effect. Why does this happen? Thats a hard question to answer when you havenâ€™t done the simple experiment iâ€™m going to show you.

The experiment is really simple, so simple you may laugh at me for making such bold claims.

All you need is two capacitors and two alligator clips. One capacitor must be bigger with more microfarads, donâ€™t use super caps. For my big capacitor I used a 220uF 50V capacitor and my little capacitor I used a 1uF at 400V. In order for this to work the big capacitor needs to be at a higher standing voltage than the little capacitor, my big capacitor started out at 238.6mV and my little capacitor started out at 24mV. To keep things fair you must have a standing voltage on both capacitors, that means both capacitors must sit not connected to anything for at least 12 hours. When both have a standing voltage record both standing voltage of capacitors. Now using the alligator clips connect the big capacitors positive lead to the positive lead of the little capacitor and the other alligator clip connects the negative leads of the big and little capacitor together. Now let it sit for a few hours or even days.

Depending on your capacitors this is what should happen: The big capacitor will try to charge the little capacitor, so the big capacitor goes down in voltage while the little one goes up until both are equaled out. Now this is where it starts to get crazy, both capacitors will go up in voltage, above the starting voltage of the big capacitor. My setup started out with the big capacitor with a standing voltage of 238.6 mV, now both capacitors read 397.0 mV. Iâ€™ve have not added any power and I donâ€™t keep the meter connected. For some odd reason capacitors hooked up in parallel can self charge above the starting voltage, which by some people definition is overunity.

It's not likely overunity, unless static electricity and the earth's field counts as OU.

Those who "know" always keep a shorting jumper across the terminals of their really large capacitors. By hooking your caps in parallel you have increased the total capacitance. Caps, especially electrolytic caps, are like "charge magnets", they will suck up charge (read voltage) from the environment if it's there to be sucked. Lots of things determine the voltage attained: the leakage current vs. the charging current, mostly, and thank goodness, the charging current from the environment is very small. But big caps can actually build up a dangerous amount of charge in the "right" environment if you let them.

I would call it a redox reaction. Only chemical capacitors charge a bit themselves. The cause is chemical reactions at the interface metal/electrolyte, question of depolarization as in any cell. This dismisses a phenomenon that would be due to the capacitors principle. Nothing else here than a conventional phenomenon.

To avoid chemical reaction and possibly get a Maxwell demon with a cell, see http://www.overunity.com/index.php?topic=10208

Considering the amount of EMF in the air in most environments and even the energy field generated by a person I don't find it too surprising that capacitors could pick up a charge from the environment.  Just laying out the leads from a sensitive voltmeter you can see it picks up voltage from the environment and usually the more they are stretched out the more voltage you get.  But still capacitors might be doing something more than just picking up regular EMF.  It's something to look at.

It's not the reason. It would not explain why only chemical capacitors are concerned. For charging from EM fields, a rectifier would be needed. There is none in a capacitor, and no diode effect.

@ All:
After toying with this Captret project for what seams like many many days now, my take on this is:
I feel that the Captret and its caps are absorbing Aether from the surrounding space, and the cap is converting it to usable electric power. The caps are the  unreplaceable part of this effect, and has been mentioned many times before, in many different threads.  This is a Tesla idea, not mine own, but I am applying the concept in the Captret.  It is Aether that is found Everywhere, heat it just one aspect of it, the cause of the heat is due to the Aether conversion, but the body is also an energy form.
The trick is to make the caps and metal batteries work together and become efficient enough to have them produce   usable energy.  Even thought the Captret system seams like it is a closed system, the metal caps and batteries (antenna effect) have turned it into an open system, by the absorption of Aether (not just heat). The body is also an energy form, that may help caps to absorb more energy than what is found in the normal surrounding air, at a faster rate, therefore there is more light output from the leds. It is not draining the charge from caps faster, but instead it is impulsing the effect generation.
I don't think that the Captret's charging ability is very important here, as to me the small amount of extra energy is just a surface charge, when using only one led. But, the fact that leds are lit for days or weeks now, without the battery dropping its charge by more than a couple of volts is significant.  This is where the magic lies...
Like drinking from a glass that never empties.   There is definately something to this, if we can figure it's cause, correctly.  I'm still hoping to be shown how this effect can be utilized to a beneficial purpose, by those with more experience, and ideas...

I agree with you. I am wondering whether we could maximize the surface area exposed to the "aether" in a way to attract more aether?

For example, in order to improve the captret's efficiency, can we maximize the combined total surface area of the capacitor cans by increasing the number of capacitors in parallel?

Another area which I am looking at is Tesla's patent 685,957 and Bruce A. Perreault's work. According to the Tesla's patent, the metal/insulator interface can trap radiant energy from the space. I am not sure if the interface between the plastic skin and the metal can of an electrolytic capacitor can do the same thing.

(PS. credits should go to the originator of captret, ibpointless2.)

I have increased the surface area of the combined capacitors (10) on my Captret and also have made a straight dipole of the combined metal D and also AA batteries to hook-up to a Captret-Jt device.  I think that the way this can operate itself is to simulate an open system.  The metal caps, batteries  and wiring works together to draw in juice from the surrounding space similar to an antenna circuit.  Putting your finger on a caps can stimulate the process.

@ Osiris:
William, how nice of you to offer that patent, as what is needed.
It might work too,  I'll try it, just so happens that I have a zinc covered metal plate about the right size, for just such an occasion.

@ Osiris:
Wifi bridge?  Is that the same as a router, if so, how should I aim it, and at what?  I think I'm out in right field on this one.  But if I see it coming, I'll catch it...
I'm still working at the antenna system...

Sunlight or any other ionizing sources tend to accelerate the charging effect. I am sure that many of us (including myself) have already verified this fact by experiment. I wonder if we could use this device to power an UV lamp and then let the ionizing energy from the UV lamp be recycled?

A boost converter.  A step-up converter.  A transformer.  Any number of things, actually, and none of them described as "overunity."  Overunity implies net power gain, not net voltage gain.  Net voltage gain is common, inexpensive, doesn't violate any laws of physics, and has nothing to do with free energy.

I back at working on this parallel charging of capacitors and batteries. I'm starting to see things to match up and I do think that the captret affect was taking use of the aether or Zero Point energy. Better yet I think capacitors in general can take energy from the vacuum or any dielectric material such as rocks or crystals.

Looking at the Tesla patent given by Osiris it seems that it was merely a capacitor that Tesla was showing us. One Plate of the capacitor is in the air while the other is the ground and the dielectric is the air and ground(dirt). It also reminds me of the people who would grow plants in the dark using the same idea Tesla showed in the patent.

I think dielectric material is the key to tapping free energy. Many inventors have already done this before.

Ib and all:
I'm still wanting to know just how much energy can be obtained from the large shiny plate place high up in the air.  The two plates and a capacitor in between has not really been shown to work too well or replicated to a usable degree.  Or has it???
The beach sand cement cells that I just made are working great, and they may work even better connected to the right capacitor bank. I'm having good luck so far lighting the leds direct.  Free energy, running 24/7...

I made a battery recharger-holder for the Captret a while back that uses a straight 1/2 inch pvc water pipe with screw caps on the ends. I place 7  1.5 volt AA batteries inside. I can charge them all off of the 12 volt wall adapter. But, the idea was to connect it to the captret and see it I can make it act as an antenna that would absorb some Aether and convert it to charge the batteries, and keep the captret going too.  Parallel charging....
Just like how capacitors bounce back, batteries also do it to some degree, as well as a captret, the cement cells are doing it also.  Probably due to the same reasons, they all converting the surrounding Aether to usable power.

The key to tapping the Aether is to use capacitors or that it is what I'm seeing. Looking at the Tesla patent it looks like a capacitor, one plate is in the air and the other plate is in the ground. Tesla even mentions using a circuit like system tap would short out the capacitor after it has built up high enough charge and dumping that charge in a battery so that radiant energy can charge the battery and do work. Tesla looks like he's using the potential difference between the earth and the ground, and that can be high voltage depending how far you go up.

Tesla also mentions that the cell collects energy from sun too. This reminds me of the work of people who grew plants in the dark. http://www.energeticforum.com/agriculture/5473-growing-plants-total-darkness.html

Charging Caps......

The capacity of electrolytic caps might even change with temperature / barometric pressure.
As we have Q=C*U - a cap charged with voltage v1 will increase its voltage if the capcity decreases and vice-versa.
Another effect is that such cap is no ideal component.
If you short it - the net charge at the output terminal is 0. This doesnÂ´t mean that the energy stored in the cap is zero.
If you take that into account - and the effect that the isolation conductivity is not homogenous - its quit natural that a cap
changes its voltage after being short-circuited.
