A student in Germany has invented a device that can charge batteries off of WIFI signals, radio waves and even from stray energy from high power lines. Its just in the beginning stages now and takes a whole day to charge a small battery but, its still a great leap forward in finding ways to get energy from the air around us.

Student Invents Device that Charges Batteries with Radio and WIFI Waves

German university student, Dennis Siegel, invented a device that captures electromagnetic fields like WIFI and radio waves and converts them to stored energy in batteries.

The omnipresence of electromagnetic fields is implied just by simple current flow. We are surrounded by electromagnetic fields which we are producing for information transfer or as a byproduct. Many of those fields are very capacitive and can be harvested with coils and high frequency diodes. Accordingly, I built special harvesting devices that are able to tap into several electromagnetic fields to exploit them. The energy is stored in an usual battery. So you can for example gain redundant energy from the power supply of a coffee machine, a cell phone or an overhead wire by holding the harvester directly into the electromagnetic field whose strength is indicated by a LED on the top of the harvester.

Depending on the strength of the electromagnetic field it is possible to charge a small battery within one day. The system is meant to be an option for granting access to already existing but unheeded energy sources. By exploring these sources it can create a new awareness of the invisible electromagnetic spaces while giving them a spatial dimension.

Activist Post

He's also got a (somewhat lame with no audio) video of him demonstrating the device.

Every new technology has to start with just a little step. This is pretty impressive for something some student just whipped up. For now, it takes a whole day to charge a battery, imagine how well this thing could work if he got some serious financial backing. That is, if any company out there is really interested in free energy for the masses (probably not because there's no profit in it

Jerks will probably try to suppress this, you just watch.

well, what this student has proposed has been done many times, but there are some problems with it. The energy radiated falling on a specific surface area decreases with the square of the distance from the radiator. From the picture, the guy is standing right next to a radiator. If he moves 4 meters away, the amount of energy is a 16'th of what it was.
That is how passive RFID tags work, it picks up the energy from a loop that energizes the electronic circuitry in the tag, and energizes it. It is also the way how to charge the batteries inside implanted medical devices, as well as charging the batteries of your electric toothbrush.
In the olden days, you could light up a neon tube close to a RADAR system, and you had crystal sets that could drive a headphone from the energy it received from the transmitter.
And yes, you can make a coil with a diode charging a small battery, and yes, it will work if you bring it close enough to an AC powerline, but take that same circuit a couple of meters away, and you'll be better off using a solar cell to charge the same battery.

So yes, the EMF radiation is all around us, but there are some physical constraints that makes the usage impractical on a broad base.

In any case, you are already charging all your batteries using Tesla's invention. The powergrid is AC, as developen by Mr. Tesla, and that allows you to use transformers to decrease/increase the voltage as required.

the ptb is not gonna be to happy about this tech syphoning off their emf mind control waves, i don't expect this to be allowed to go any where!

You hit the nail right on the head. This technology has been around longer than most of us. As Carl Sagan said:

-We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.

Would just like to add that you can credit Faraday and Hippolyte Pixii the same as you can Tesla for AC. But yes, good job in what you pointed out in your post.

@ Other posts.

Never ceases to amaze me how many people think something is new because they've never seen it before.

Oh yes, and suppression.

Dear lord...

There is another very big problem with this technology. All the energy that this device collects has to be transmitted at one point... using energy that was generated by power plants. The efficiency of this kind of energy transfer is extremely poor. The wasted energy is in the 99.9% range.

Totally Agree with you both, I only used Tesla's name, as it seems as though so many view him as a god, and that was the title of the thread, "Tesla style battery charger". As far as inefficient energy collection is concerned, totally true on that. The radiator radiates in a sphere, or a torus, or a tube, depending on the shape of the radiator, and you can only intercept a small part of that energy, except when you can enclose the whole radiator, like what the charging circuit in your electric toothbrush do, or when you shape the beam of the transmitter, and you intercept almost all the transmitted energy.

The proponents of Tesla's later work will go on about scalar waves, etc, but face it, there is no proof that scalar waves exist, and yes, there are all these designs for scalar antennas on the web, that cancels out either the RF field, or the magnetic field, and then picks up the "scalar field", and attribute all sorts of magical properties to it, but if you do the effort of actually testing it, you will find it is mainly the magnetic field that causes these effects, not some magical scalar wave, or the "ether".

Why the hell would someone say this is free energy.... this is a step BACKWARDS in terms of energy use. It's obvious that some people are incredibly ignorant about the technology behind this, all you are doing is literally STEALING electricity that someone else paid for, and it was generated by coal, gas, hydro, nuclear, etc just like your wall outlet.

This isn't free energy, this isn't even efficient energy. You can steal power from radio signals rather easily, the problem is the broadcaster is going to get pretty angry when he realizes his signal strength is being sapped away by some fools thinking they are getting free energy by using this type of device.

But I'm sure that fact won't stop some more people in this thread from talking about government coverups or corporate greed, because they cannot grasp the fact the energy being collected is the same energy you get from your wall outlet.
