For many years I have been following 'Free Energy'

If they aren't suppressed by the powers that be (like they have for probably 100 years)...This is the year that we may see some of them on the market.

One of the latest 'Free Energy' devices I have come across is the the U-Plug 2kW generator. This magnet powered generator is only 24 inches tall, 6 inches in diameter and weighs only 20 pounds. It continually produces 115 volts at 17.3 amps of power [1990 Watts] The U-Plug is expected to cost just $2000.

I believe they may exist at this time; I also believe "the powers that be" (as you put it) would happily kill you and your whole family (and the dog) to keep it from being made available to the public.

You can always count on one absolute - greedy people never stop being greedy.

I would have to see the theory of how this device works before I would give any credibility to it, much less invest $2000.  "Magnet powered" is much too vague, as is that entire YouTube presentation.

This is a link to just one patent (20 years old) that describes an 'OVERUNITY' device.

Puts out more energy than it consumes.

Hitachi Engineers confirm Over-Unity Process

Application by Kawai of adroit self-switching of the magnetic path in magnetic motors results in approximately doubling the COP.  Modification of an ordinary magnetic engine of COP < 0.5 will not produce COP > 1.0.  However, modification of available high efficiency (COP = 0.6 to 0.8) engines to use the Kawai process does result in engines exhibiting COP = 1.2 to 1.6.  Two Kawai-modified Hitachi engines were rigorously tested by Hitachi engineers and produced COP = 1.4 and COP = 1.6 respectively.  The Kawai process and several other Japanese overunity systems have been blocked from further development and marketing.

The Kawai process can be built directly from the Patent, using high-speed switching (such as very efficient photon-coupled switching).

Teruo Kawai, "Motive Power Generating Device," U.S. Patent No. 5,436,518, Jul. 25, 1995.

I could easily list at least 20 more.

Have you seen what's been going on with LENR?


I looked at the website from which you may have gotten this and looked at the patent document. Aside from being written in terribly stilted and redundant language (maybe a literal translation from Japanese?), and doing little more than describing how practically any electric motor with switched field electromagnets and permanent armature magnets works, the claim seems to be that the switching process makes this motor unusually efficient. Nowhere does it claim to produce more mechanical energy than the electrical energy it consumes.


The website talks of some unspecified "engine" with a COP greater than 1 when using this motor.  COP (coefficient of performance) is a term usually applied to refrigerators, air conditioners, or heat pumps, and refers to the ratio of heat transferred (from a colder to a warmer region) to the electrical energy required for that purpose.   If that is what is meant here, there is nothing unusual about it; refrigerators and heat pumps have been operating with a COP > 1 for the better part of 100 years.

But this is not what the website is trying to make us believe.  It wants us to believe that there is a motor that produces enough energy not only to run itself, but something else besides (i.e., a perpetual motion machine producing free energy that violates not only the 2nd law of thermodynamics, but the 1st law (energy conservation) as well), along with the usual conspiracy theory as to why the manufacture of this remarkable device is being suppressed.

I can assure you, that even if the distribution of this motor were being suppressed by evil forces, physicists and engineers all over the world would be building the Kawai motor from the information in the patent (as the website suggests) and testing it to see if it really produces more energy than it consumes. If it did that, it would be the scientific news of the CENTURY, overturning one of the two most FUNDAMENTAL laws of physics, and Kawai would have a Nobel prize forthwith.

Needless to say, it hasn't happened, and for a very good reason, having nothing to do with conspiracies.

Yes, free energy devices are possible, provided that we can come to an agreement on the meaning of the word 'free.'


Produce more energy than they consume.

Coefficienct of Performance greater than 1


(the device above doesn't use any kind of fuel to run...magnet motor powered) 

How to measure a magnets energy for cop?...I don't know.

Preferably very cost effective.

I'm not sure why it is, but for some reason, The Beatles, "Tax Man" just popped in to my head.  Hmmm.


Sales tax.
