The paper claims that the battery is a passive component to that extraordinary oscillation. I think the guys have now comprehensively proved this. We use wonderful batteries - a gift from First National Battery Supplies. They have a 50 watt hour rating. Well - in very nearly 2 years now - we have not been able to get their voltage below their fully charged condition - notwithstanding repeated efforts.
In order to test the 'passive' nature of that supply to the technology - the guys ran lights off three batteries to flatten them down to about 10 volts each. At this level they produced no light at all - as expected. Then we ran the experiment - off those 3 x 10 volts each giving a total voltage - notwithstanding their charge status - of plus 30 volts. The oscillation is ROBUST - the element too hot to touch - and the batteries sublimely unaware that they could not be delivering any energy at all.
We're going to tweak this to higher frequencies and then test this to the duration. But it's a breakthrough of no small order. It proves that current flow from the supply is not required for this effect - that the battery supply is secondary to this effect. It seems that an imbalanced voltage condition is enough to perpetuate that oscillation.
Which puts paid to the need for fully charged batteries to ignite your car's starters - to run your electric appliances - or any application whatsoever. It's amazing news. I'm going to try and alert the forum to this news. It needs to be better known.
