Is anyone else actively working on the Don Smith device ?


Hi guys,

I am a young electronic engineer from Germany who came across Don Smith's lectures a few months ago. I started to analyze the pictures Don Smith showed of his device. However, I'm a little confused by now, as various sources have completely controversial opinions about the components Don Smith is said to have used.

I think I have understood the basic function. Of course I am not 100% sure about this until I have finished building the device. If someone is still actively working on the device I would like to exchange the primary coil and the 2 capacitors in the primary circuit. Furthermore I studied the graph of the reactance and took a look at some harmonic frequencies to the 35 kHz input frequency. Could it be that Don Smith used Tesla's statement about the 3,6,9 ?

3rd harmonic 105 kilohertz ~2.855166 kilometers
6th harmonic 210 kilohertz ~1.427583 kilometers
9th harmonic 315 kilohertz ~951.722089 meters
12th harmonic 420 kilohertz ~713.791567 meters

Just to pick up a few...

I have seen some schematics showing Don Smith's primary coil with 2.9 uH. The capacitors in the primary circuit were indicated with 0.2 uF which results in a resonant frequency of about 208.98 kHz and thus almost reaches the 6th harmonic...

Unfortunately I got myself a wrong neon transformer which has a ground current protection built in :( Therefore I didn't do any further tests for the time being because in my opinion grounding plays a very important role in overunity devices. I have now continued to focus on magnetic coupling of permanent magnets and the energy transfer through the natural medium. However, I would like to keep an eye on the analysis of Don Smith's generator and exchange views with some members.

It is time to finally put an end to the global energy disaster.

Best regards


Oh ya, I have a lot you will like to know and it is even simpler that you might think! I need an EE and the last hurdle will be solved.


I'm not but I'm building a mini Tesla tower .which is a don smith device or is a don smith device a Tesla device .old don said his work parrelled Tesla when you look at the particular points there the same thing except don leaves off the big ball .deliberate ? I think so .with out that ball Tesla's work doesn't work .I think this is the reason so many fail at duplication. The earth is a huge super cap and with Tesla's tower and in the drawing you see the ball and a earth ground .there's a current flowing there .and every meter up you get a hundred volts so when Konstantin made his mini Tesla tower running on about three volts this ball was about one meter up that would place it in the 100 volt area now pluse it and pull that energy .he got 10 times over unity .I think the higher up you go the greater the out do that with don smith secondary and see what happens .with out the ball even Tesla didn't work .that ball is a anchor in the earth electrical potential.

Yes.  And in a few short words, keep the idea in mind but dump him.  50% of the building plans isn't anything. 

I say, pursue DIRECT CURRENT SPARK GAPS, not Alternating Current.  It was Nikola's meal ticket and he abandoned it.

I say pursue the JOULE RINGER circuit design.  It works.  Shoutout to LazerHacker.
