Bedini Motor Increased Charging Running 19 LED Lights & Reduced Current

I wanted to see if I could get some free light from the output of my Bedini motor while charging a battery. I ended up with 2 incandescent lights and 19 LED lights with reduced input current and increased output charging.

 

I first got the idea of trying an incandescent light bulb in series with the charging output of my old Bedini motor. The light glowed, but faintly. I tried a second light bulb in parallel with the first and it also glowed but both were half as bright as one alone. They shared the energy basically. Then I tried adding an LED light bulb.

 

This is an LED replacement bulb for campers and RVs. It is a 12 volt LED light bulb with multiple LEDs on a board. This lit up when placed in parallel with the two incandescent light bulbs.

Next I added another and another and another. Each LED light bulb glowed as brightly as the first.

 

 

 

The surprising thing is that when I added the lights in series with the output of the Bedini motor, the current went down just a little bit while the motor slowed down some. And the charging battery voltage jumped up some. This was interesting. Normally when you load a standard motor the current will go up. I have heard of this before with Bedini circuits but never tried it myself. I used my Bedini motor to restore lead acid batteries all these years.

 

No matter how many LED light bulbs I put in parallel with the others, the current on the input side never went up and the motor speed stayed the same. The charging battery output remained stronger as well. But adding more LED light bulbs did not seem to change anything at all in the system.

 

When I removed all the lamps and ran the output directly to the battery, the current went up a tiny bit while the battery charge dropped a little and the motor sped up some.

Put the lamps in series with the charging battery and again the charing battery voltage went up while the input current dropped and the motor slowed down some.

 

I kept adding more LED lights to see if there was a limit. I ran out of LED light bulbs at 19 with 2 incandescent lamps, all in parallel with one another. These lights were all in series with the output battery on the positive side.

The bulbs were not glowing very brightly though but you could see by them. I could see this being used for emergency lighting throughout an entire house though because no matter how many LED light bulbs I added, the input current did not change while the battery was still being charged on the output.

I want to try this out with fluorescent light bulbs but right now I do not have any. I will have to watch for some at garage sales and see what happens with them on the output of the Bedini motor. I have heard that some people get good results with these.

 

The charging battery is an old UPS battery that was down to 0.5 volts when I first got it. It was bone dry and I had to add distilled water to it and then charge it up on my old Bedini motor. Currently it is sitting at about 11 volts at rest and is able to power the Bedini motor for a few hours so it is capable of doing some work. Eventually I will have it fully restored and back into service again.

 

I am not sure how this affects the experiment but I have read that impedence and resistance is important in a Bedini circuit. This may have an impact on the results of anyone trying to copy this experiment. Later I will try out the test using a different sized battery to see what results I get.

 

But for now I have free light with increased battery charging and reduced current on the input side. This is pretty cool.
