Generator that runs on water . . .

No offense to the people who state this should work, but my advice is that if they truly believe these products work, then they should spend a lot less time on forums calling people naysayers, get out their check books, and order one, or maybe even THREE! Or invest they life savings in the company IMMEDIATELY!

Don't wait until someone else buys the company! I'm willing to take the risk that in a year, they may be posting about how they are now independently wealthy!

Actually--many large-scale dairy operations in Wisconsin are producing electricity as a by-product of bovine excretions. Guess it would be a bit of a challenge to scale it for use in an RV--too bad......

I would really like to invest in this company. Sadly, all my money is currently tied up in Stark Industries.

Tony promises that the new Arc Reactor will be on the market soon.

The autoformer does not violate any laws of physics. It uses them (Inductance) to change voltage. Just like the hundreds of thousands that are mounted on utility power poles.

FWIW the issue with an autoformer is power. Power out = power in + losses. There is always some loss due to the wire resistance. If the output voltage is different than the input voltage then the currents are adjusted as needed.

It's mid-2016 now, when they said they'd be selling them. They claim to be in the manufacturing phase and to be no longer accepting deposits due to excessive demand.

I don't buy it.

Why not?

It sounds like this is an HHO generator. Certainly, it's possible to build one. The problem is, can you build one that doesn't consume more electricity to perform the electrolysis than it can produce? I don't think the laws of thermodynamics allow for that.

If you google HHO scam, you'll find plenty of info about how what I suspect is the same technique this generator purports to use doesn't actually work.

That said, if you covered the entire roof of your motorhome with high-efficiency solar cells, *maybe* you could produce enough hydrogen and oxygen for this generator to have a net energy win, at least on a sunny day at high noon (or not; I don't know how much energy you could produce from solar panels on the roof of an MH). However, even then it would only work during the sunniest part of the day.

The other reason I'm skeptical of this is that if it were really possible, everyone would have been doing this, for a very long time. The principal of separating water into hydrogen and oxygen is very well understood and is not new technology. Electrolysis of water was first performed in 1800. If this were possible, cars would all be running on hydrogen, produced from water. The only argument anyone can make to that is to put on a tinfoil hat and state that the oil companies would never allow it. Sorry, but they'd have a hard time preventing the car companies from doing it, since it would make their product better and cheaper (so they could sell more) and would get the emissions controls monkey off their backs forever, since a vehicle that consumed only hydrogen and oxygen, which it produced itself from water, would have no emissions.

I'd be happy to be proven wrong on this - who wouldn't be - but I'm also certain I won't be.

I would burn diesel and keep water for drinking. Nothing is free.

If you used a flux capacitor and did some time travel you could go back to the time when the Big Guy walked on water. Your generator might run on that water but I think I would believe in the first miracle.

Lot of gas here, enough to build and run a "flatulance" powered generator?
