The laws of conservation of energy are still valid. There is no free lunch or perpetual motion machines.

Re: Light Bulbs to Charge a Battery ?

Just shows me that there are always suckers out there for someone to take advantage of.

Probably why Ponzi schemes work so well.

Re: Light Bulbs to Charge a Battery ?

forget light bulb charging, I want one of these
COSMIC RADIANT ENERGY and the ELECTRINIUM BATTERY | Real Do it Yourself Energy

Or better yet, a waste nuclear radioactive steam engine, powered by spent nuclear casks.
they get hot enough to turn water to steam.

http://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/...nuclear-waste/
Quote:
When the fuel is old enough and cool enough that it cannot heat up a sealed canister to more than 752 degrees Fahrenheit, it can be loaded into a dry cask. The fuel is sealed inside a metal capsule, and air circulating on the outside of the capsule carries off the heat, with no fans or pumps.
see what I mean by a lot of wasted energy, good heat going to waste.
perhaps last for decades like that. I think we have missed the boat on the nuclear opportunity.
Ford had a better idea
http://www.ridelust.com/the-ford-nuc...-in-the-trunk/

Quote:
Designers anticipated that a typical Ford Nucleon would be able to travel about 5,000 miles per charge.
that is sick, we could have solved the energy crisis.

today we have boron shielding but we have no guts.

Re: Light Bulbs to Charge a Battery ?

Makes as much sense as growing corn, harvesting it, mashing it, making ethanol, adding it to gasoline to expand the gasoline quantity by 10% at a cost that eradicates any savings at all. Growing the corn requires energy from the tractors, corn seed suppliers, acreage with fertilizer, harvesting with equipment also burning gallons of diesel fuel. etc, etc, etc. Do you think after all of that, is ethanol gasoline saving anybody anything?? It certaintly makes the corn supply preciously short for all of the food needs that corn usually supplies. (I guess as a former research chemist among other things, I like to consider the laws of conservation of matter and energy.)

What? Are you telling me that the ultrasonic antifouling machine doesn't really work? I am so disapointed. I thought for sure it would be shipping to my local West Marine any day now.

Re: Light Bulbs to Charge a Battery ?

Hey... Popular Mechanics Magazine back in the 50's/ 60's said we would being paid not to work (True for some folks)because robots would do all the work and a golf ball sized piece of fuel would power your car for your lifetime. It must be a Big Oil conspericy to keep all this a secret as well as the bulb thing.

Re: Light Bulbs to Charge a Battery ?

I'll give you 0.02 Nigerian Naira for the patent! If anybody beats me out I will be sorely disappointed, but that's the best I can offer.
