PostHeaderIcon Desulfating Lead Acid Batteries Homestead Chickens And More

On a dark and gray day, the forklift batteries were pulling in 450 to 480 watts. I had left the inverter and modem on for a little bit which brought them down to 163 watts and a decent 13.7 volts at 63 degrees, but the production was good for a day that was lacking sunshine.

The new chickens have acclimated well to their surroundings at the Off Grid homestead. There are three areas for them to sleep and lay–the coop, the chicken tractor, and the old rabbit hutch. In the coop, the original chickens line up on two perches inside when they are holing up from the weather or sleeping at night. The tractor seems to be where the new birds have decided to stay. It has two seperate areas…one is an enclosed coop above and the other a somewhat more open area beneath. The old rabbit hutch has become the laying facility. They go in, lay their eggs and leave, making it convenient for gathering. Right now, there is one nesting space, but dividers are cut and will be added to create three additional nesting boxes. This day brought five eggs in varying sizes and colors…white, off-white, and light brown…due to the different varieties of hens.

A couple of days before, I hooked the badly sulfated golf cart batteries to my homemade Bedini motor, and I soon discovered the CLEN desulfator was interfering with the Bedini. The CLEN uses electronics to put a high voltage pulse into the batteries which brakes up the sulfation on the plates, whereas the Bedini uses radiant energy. Each time the desulfator pulsed, there was a distinct dimming of the light on the Bedini motor. I disconnected when I realized there was an issue, but I am now going to leave them both running to see what happens, just out of curiosity.

Doing a quick check, the sulfated golf cart batteries showed a surprising 12.63 volts after just a couple days on the Bedini motor. When the voltage stops going up, it will be time to shut off the Bedini, put a load on them, then recharge them again.

To round out my day, I was excited to receive what appears to be a pretty amazing book “Collapse : Suburban Survival Solutions.” Glancing through, I saw it has some extremely interesting information. I’m looking forward to some late nights reading and researching.

PostHeaderIcon Making A Solar Powered Bedini SSG Radiant Energy Charger

I am working on a solar powered Bedini SSG charger using all scrap materials. The cost is absolutely nothing to make. Now that is what I call “free energy”. The system is running on solar powered batteries and is restoring an old, junk lead acid battery.

If you are not familiar with either radiant energy or the Bedini SSG, you can learn more Here.

I took a defective laserjet printer and scrapped out all useful parts. The solenoids from the printer were useful for this circuit. An old hard drive gave me the super fine bearings and platters to glue magnets on to. The only thing that did cost anything at all were the magnets. I have had them laying around for years. The label shows they are from Radio Shack and cost $1.99 a pack long ago. They have been collecting dust in a drawer until now.

I have been wanting to make a new Bedini charger, but had no money for the wire. Copper wire is getting expensive. I had been thinking about salvaging wire from old transformers, but that is a lot of work. Then I realized I had some solenoids laying around from that laser printer I had junked.

The base of the motor is an old hard drive spindle with its motor. I kept the hard drive plates in place and just hot glued six magnets around the outside and taped everything down well.

I screwed the hard drive motor to a part of the old hard drive case and then screwed that down to a piece of wood. I used a smaller solenoid as the trigger coil and two identical larger solenoids as the power coils. I ran the two power coils in parallel and used a single transistor.

Because the hard drive motor had some resistance, the motor would not stay spinning at first. But with each spin up of the motor by hand the charging battery was getting charged. The volt meter on the output went up every time I spun the motor by hand. So I knew I was getting radiant energy. I decided to try to take the hard drive motor apart and just use the bearings, but could not get it open. So I gave it a good, hard whack with a hammer and it broke up the magnets inside enough to allow the spindle to spin freely with no drag.

With only one power coil, you could tell the motor wanted to run, but it just did not have enough power to push the magnets around. So I added the second coil and the Bedini SSG spun right up and is currently restoring an old lead acid battery.

This “free energy generator” is using free solar power to run the motor and is restoring an old battery for free. I dont care how much current it uses on the input because the solar power is free. It does not cost me anything to run this generator. It was also very easy to assemble because I did not need to wind any coils or make a bearing support and spindle.

The new radiant energy generator seems to be putting out a lot of power. It is performing better than my old lawn mower wheel machine. I am not sure yet why it seems so powerful, but I will keep this one together exactly as it is and study it.

PostHeaderIcon Bedini Simplified School Girl Radiant Energy Generator – Water Splitter

I have been working with my Bedini motors and water to attempt to provide useful fuel for home heating and to power a car or small engine.

Bedini SSG and Water Capacitor

In theory, if the Bedini motor or any other radiant energy generator can be used to charge capacitors, then they should be able to “charge” a water capacitor. My experiments are pproving that theory correct. I have been connecting the Bedini SSG motor outputs to various sized water capacitors in order to split water into hydrogen and oxygen with very little energy input.

Radiant Energy Browns Gas Production

So far though, there is not enough gas output to be useful for anything, but the experiments are still in the early stages. I have found that when using stainless steel wall cover plates, more is not better. In brute force hydroxy production, 7 plates are the best with a vehicles’ 12 volt power supply. But with the Bidini SSG, it seems like a single cell with only 2 plates produce the best output. When I add more plates, only the outside two plates produce any noticable gas output. The other plates are just extra weight.

Another interesting discovery is that more water cells do not add up to more gas output. With the SSG, you can charge multiple batteries at once, all in parallel off a single output. With my SSG, the gas output is divided among the water capacitors. When I try various sized water capacitors in parallel, the SSG tunes itself to a single one and mostly ignores the rest of them.

So, it seems like the best option is to upgrade the Bedini SSG for more power output in order to get more gas output.

Future experiments will include tubes and larger plates in the water splitters.
