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".
