Someone is demoing a Bendini Motor near where I am in a couple of hours.
I dont know if they will be giving the whole over-unity talk, but if they do, any suggestions of questions I should ask them?
If I understand it correctly, whats happening is that a you are induction charging one battery with another, only instead of creating an oscillating signal, you use a mechanical oscillator, which looks like a wheel. (or alternately induction charging, the original power source )
In theory you could completely charge on battery with the other - except if there is a load on the wheel, then the original battery is drained without powering the second battery. So there is not much point in having a wheel instead of an oscillating circuit driving the induction charging.
there is a claim, that one battery can charge 4 batteries. this one does not make any sense to me - I assume that they don't use any voltage regulation and that the voltage oscillations in the circuit charging the batteries somehow drives up the voltage? If you would use these batteries, they would not perform very well? dunno - this part baffles me, but I have also not found much information on it. I believe the talk is of lead-acid batteries, which I don't really know anything about...
here is the nicest explanation I found of the principle:

edit: is induction charging even the right term for this? charging by motion of a magnet?
