John Bedini has a prototype free energy motor.
Imagine having a small D.C. electrical motor sitting on your laboratory bench
powered by a common 12 volt battery. Imagine starting with a fully charged
battery and connecting it to the motor with no other power input. Obviously,
the motor is going to run off the battery, but by conventional thinking it will
stop when the battery runs down.
It isn't running by the conventional wisdom of electrical physics. It isn't
running by the conventional rules of electric motors and generators, but it is
And it isn't something complex. It's pretty simple, once one gets the hang of
the basic idea.
Impossible, you say. Not at all. That's precisely what John Bedini has done,
and the motor is running now in his workshop.
It's running off the principles of electromagnetics that Nikola Tesla
discovered shortly before 1900 in his Colorado Springs experiments. It's
running off the fact that pure empty vacuum - pure "emptiness", so to speak, is
filled with rivers and oceans of seething energy, just as Nikola Tesla pointed
It's running off the fact that vacuum space-time itself is nothing but pure
masless charge. That is, vacuum has a very high electrostatic scalar potential
- it is greatly stressed. To usefully tap the enormous locked-in energy of that
stress, all one has to do is crack it sharply and tap the vacuum oscillations
that result. The best way to do that is to hit something resonant that is
imbedded in the vacuum, then tap the resonant stress of the ringing of the
In other words, we can ring something at its resonant frequency and, if that
something is imbedded in the vacuum, we can tap off the resonance in vacuum
stress, without tapping energy directly from the embedded system we rang into
oscillation. So what we really need is something that is deeply imbedded in the
vacuum, that is, something that can translate the "vacuum" movement into "mass"
Well, all charged particles and ions are already imbedded in the vacuum by
their charged fluxes, so stressed oscillations - that is, vacuum oscillations -
can be converted into normal energy of mass movement by charged particles or
ions, if the system of charged particles or ions is made to resonate in phase
with our tapping "potential". For our purpose, let's use a system of ions.
First we will need a big accumulator to hold a lot of the charged ions in the
system that we wish to shock into oscillation. We need something that has a big
capacitance and also contains a lot of ions.
An ordinary battery filled with electrolyte fits the bill nicely. While it's
not commonly known, ordinary lead-acid storage batterys have a resonant ionic
frequency, usually in the range of from 1 - 6 Mhz. All we have to do is shock
-oscillate the ions in the electrolyte at their resonant frequency and time our
"trigger" potential and "siphon" circuit correctly. Then if we keep adding
potential to trigger the system we can get all that "potential" to translate
into "free electrical energy".
Look at it this way. Conventionally "electrostatic scalar potential" is composed
of work or energy per columb of charged particle mass. So if we add potential
alone, without the mass flow, to a system of oscillating charged particles, we
add "physical energy" in the entire charged particle system. In
other words, the "potential" we add is converted directly into "ordinary energy
" by the imbedded ions in the system. And if we are clever we don't have to
furnish any pushing energy to move pure potential around. (For proof that this
is possible, see Bearden's Toward a New Electromagnetics; Part IV; Vectors and
Mechanisms Clarified, Tesla Book Co., 1983, Slide 19, Page 43, and the accom-
panying write-up, pages 10, and 11. Also see Y. Aharonov and V. Bohm, "Signifi-
cance of Electromagnetic Potentials in the Quantum Theory", Physical Review,
Second Series, Vol. 115, No. 3, Aug. 1, 1959, pages 485-491. On page 490 you
you will find that it's possible to have a field-free reigon of space, and
still have the potential determine the physical properties of the system.)
Now this "free energy resonant coupling" can be done in a simple, cheap
system. You don't need big cyclotrons and huge laboratories to do it; you can
do it with ordinary D.C. motors, batteries, controllers and trigger circuits.
And that's exactly what John Bedini has done. It's real. It works. It's
running now on John's laboratory bench in prototype form.
But that's not all. John is also a humanitarian. He's as concerned as I am
for that little old widow lady at the end of the lane, stretching her meager
Social Security check as far as she can, shivering in the cold winter and not
daring to turn up her furnace because she can't afford the frightful utility
That's simply got to change and John Bedini may well be the fellow who changes
it. By openly releasing his work in this paper, he is providing enough
information for all the tinkerers and independent inventors around the world to
have at it. If he can get a thousand of them to duplicate his device, it simply
can't be supressed as so many others have been.
So here it is. John has deliberately written his paper for the tinkerer and
experimenter, not for the scientist. You must be careful, for the device is a
little tricky to adjust in and synchronize all the resonances. You'll have to
fiddle with it, but it will work. Keep at it.
Also, we warn you not to play with this unless you know what you are doing.
The resonating battery electrolyte produces hydrogen, and if you hit it to hard
with a "voltage spike" you can get an electrical spark inside the battery. If
that happens, THE BATTERY WILL EXPLODE, so don't mess with it unless you are
qualified and use the utmost caution.
But it DOES work. So all you experimenters and pioneers, now's your chance.
Have at it. Build it. Tinker with it. Fiddle it into resonant operation. Then
lets build this thing in quantity, sell it widely, and get those home utilities
down to where we can all afford them - including the shivering little old lady
at the end of the lane.
And when we do, lets give John Bedini, and men like him the credit and appre-
ciation they so richly deserve.
[Note: John Bedini developed Two kinds of controller devices. One, being very
simple, is the one I will present here. The other is quite a bit more complex,
and would be impossible for me to reproduce here... Anyway if you want to see
the all electronic controller, get the book "Bedini's Free Energy Generator" by
John C. Bedini, Published by the Tesla Book Co. 1580 Magnolia Ave., Millbrae,
For some time man has been looking for different ways to generate electricity
. He has used water power, steam power, nuclear power, and solar power. Recent
papers written by Tom Bearden make a free energy generator possible. Tom
Bearden, rather than patent his devices, chose to share them with people who
had open ears. I myself have had many conversations with Tom Bearden. He
found Tom to be one of the most reasonable men he had ever dealt with in this
energy field. Most others would tell you stories of great machines they had,
but would never present the truth with circuit diagrams or a look at the
machine in question. Tom, on the other hand, clearly presents his ideas and
clearly presents his ideas and discloses the concepts by means of which
The facts I am about to present to you about free energy were never put into
textbooks, only portions were. The textbooks have grounded people in
conventional theory and made things very complicated. What I am about to
explain is very simple; anyone can understand this theory and anyone who
understands what he is doing can build this device.
I have been grounded in conventional theory for some eleven years. I have
always tried to study the simplicity of electrical circuits, but my mind
wouldn't allow this because of my orthodox training. In any event, I had to
change the way i was looking at things. I started to wonder, why do we need to
have things so complicated? The truth of the matter is, we have been taught to
consume or waste energy at every turn in our lives, so we jump into our cars,
turn on lights, etc. In other words, we have been conditioned to waste energy
and fuels lavishly, not realizing that someday someone will sky-rocket our
energy bills to a point where we will not be able to pay for these fuels.
Everything will come to a stand-still. But laugh as you will, at that time Rube
Goldberg machines will power your future. It probably will not be uncommon to
see machines from the size of garbage cans to the size of two story apartment
houses powering everything in sight. These machines will be using a force in
nature never conceived by the conventionally trained mind of today.
The theory I am about to explain to you will bring you one step closer to
gaining free energy.
To begin my story I must state I had a vision - looking for this energy. Many
times I hammered my head into the ground, but I refused to give up in my search
. Any person with a dream should never let it be wasted by fools, who will
always say "you can't do that". All that statement really means is that they do
not know how to do it.
There are many different ways to explain this theory. I will discuss the
first one now.
The device is very simple and uses a motor, a generator, a controller switch,
and a battery. Basically, we drive a direct current motor with pulsed current
from a battery, then utilize a special means to cause the battery to recharge
First, the battery, controller, and generator are interconnected as shown
in figure 3. (See also Figure 1)

Figure 3: Schematic of the device
Let's begin by stating certain facts. The ions move backwards under charging
conditions and in reverse under discharging conditions. So here we start
our new concept. Suppose we have constructed a machine that has tricked this battery
into a different space and time relationship. Simply put, suppose the battery
never did any work and it should have its full charge left in it. Suppose this
becomes possible because we have stressed the terminals in such a way that the
ions in the battery electrolyte actually move themselves backwards. The
machine, or unit, that makes this possible has many different names. Some
people call these units generators, energizers, alternators, etc.
Conventionally such devices have one thing in common; they stress the battery
backwards by pushing electricity into the battery and forcibly pushing the
ions in the electrolyte backwards. In our theory, we are not going to push anything - the ions are going to move themselves, recharging the battery.
If we go a little deeper into this theory, you are probably asking yourself,
"what is this madman talking about?" Simply put, we are going to put a stress on
the battery terminals for a moment in time and the battery will do the rest.
Now comes the heavy part of this theory. What they didn't teach you in textbooks
is that, in order for the battery to charge, two oscillatory actions must occur,
one at the positive terminal and one at the negative terminal. Under different
stress levels this then forces the ions backwards. The same would occur for an
electron. Our machine will slingshot ions in the battery electrolyte backwards
beyond the normal recoil action.
I must give a very stern warning at this time that if the voltage developed
is too high the battery will explode. Use the utmost care. Test setups in my lab
have proven that this can be dangerous. Do not build the device and experiment
with it unless you know what you are doing, and use the utmost caution.
When struck by a sharp voltage spike, the electrolyte in the battery will
resonate at a certain frequency and this can also force the ions backwards.
Simply put, the battery, the motor, and the energizer will become resonant at
some point, "ring" like a bell when we "strike" it, and in its ringing the most
energy will be developed.
[Note: sorry I can't produce waveforms here so get the book! I will present
the explanation here, however]
The battery is really charging itself. The ions in the electrolyte are being
stressed in a curved space and time relationship, the battery is actually
forced into believing that no work ever occured. The oscillatory action that has
taken place by the energizer has just pulsed our "slingshot" and immediately
let go. Once this has happened, the electrolyte in the battery goes wild
and the ions race backwards, giving off hydrogen and oxygen gas. I must make a
stern warning here! The time of the stimulaing pulse is very important. If the
time is to long the battery will burn itself out. If the pulse time is too
short or if the circuit fails to operate correctly, the battery will never
recover its charge. Taking this into consideration, the only failures that
could occur would be the controller failure due to a points faiulre (on the
electronic controller), or the multivibrator latched in the "on" position
(again, only on the electronic controller). Anyone studying this can see
that we have used very little energy to get to this point, and gained a lot of
resonant energy in return.
We must remember that, if the battery is applied to the energizer longer than
normal, we must burn up the excess energy to keep the battery cool. The problem
now becomes one of embarrassing excess of energy, not a shortage.
The energizer is also a simple machine, but if yu want to, you can make it
very complex. The simple way is to study the alternator principles. The waves
we want to generate are like those that came from old D.C. generators with the
exception of armature drag, bearing drag, and no excited fields. Also, we
would want to cut the magnetic fields at 90 degress to the armature. The
simpler the better.
I am going to throw a few ideas your way. I have run some tests in my lab and
discovered that certain types of energizers, generators, and alternators do what
we need. Also, we want to be able to tune the output of our energizer. The old
D.C. generator puts out something very close towhat we need, except for The
In an A.C. generator output we are going to see just what we manufacture. It
would appear that this leaves this generator out. Not really, because we can
make this generator's output change by rectifying it.
In looking at the A.C. generator with rectified output, we see that it could
become very useful to us as an energizer, simply because it is the easiest
to construct and its principles are simple. I have done experiments with an
A.C. generator using ALL N. alligned magnets, and rectified. Most people can
see that that type o alternator might
have some problems. However, remember that I am looking for a certain type of
wave form that I want to tune to a certain frequency at a certain speed.
The winding of this alternatr is a problem and it is a bit tricky, but I chose to stay with this unit. You may
choose a different method if you retain the principle. The type of energizer that
was used for the prototype was a standard office type 2-speed A.C. fan housing.
The coils were replaced with 6 coils of approx. 200 turns of #20 wire - all in
phase. Six permanent magnets are bonded to an aluminum disc. This arrangement
is basically a magneto, but will produce more amperage than ordinarily expected
of a magneto.
Figure 2 shows the controller. It should be made of two coencentric circles,
one with approx. 140 degrees of copper, the other, spaced far enough from the
first for a brush to be inserted between them, a full 360 degrees of copper. Provisions should be made to
rotate the brushes in relationship to each
other in order to secure the required timing.
John Bedini found that the material generally available concerning Kromery's
Converter had been altered. Rebuilding the Kromery Converter from the patent
papers ended up in a non-functioning device. Bedini found the necessary
modifications which made this machine perform.
Our first goal was to determine the converters efficiency. We found this
to be quite difficult as the efficiency changes with the load applied.
Figure K-1 shows the first setup we used. We drove the Kromery Converter
from a 12v motorcycle battery. We connected at the output of the converter
a condenser and a rectifier bridge in parallel. The rectified current
was then put back into the motorcycle battery. To detect any current flow,
we connect into the positive line a 12 V light bulb.
The result of this test was the light bulb was lit up. However after 15 minutes
the batrery voltage had dropped from 11.05 V to 9.10 V. The speed of the
converter was stabale at 1020 rpm.

In the next test we introduced a seperate battery (battery #2) for charging
from the converter.
We recharged the battery #2 from 12.30 V to 12.40 V within 4 minutes, and we
measured a current flow into the battery #2 of 0.8 amperes.

Figure K-2 shows the second test setup. Because the kromery converter
ran too slow on one 12 V battery, we decided to drive the converter using
24 V via two 12 V batteries, connected in series.
Next we wanted to find a correlation between the normal charging of battery
#2 using a commercial battery charger, and charging this same battery with the
Kromery converter. We drained the battery #2 to 8 V, connected it to the
Kromery Converter, and after reaching 11.51 V, we measured the time it took to
charge the battery from this voltage level of 11.51 V to 12.45 V. We
reached this voltage (12.45 V) after 11 minutes. The indicated current into the
battery was 0.94 A.
We then repeated these steps using the commercial battery charger. Because we
ran out of time after nearly 2 hours, we disconnected the battery from the
charger. The battery voltage had reached 12.41 V. The measurement is depicted
in Figure K-3.

NOTE: The charger could not fill up the batteries
to 12.45 volts within two hours.
We wanted to find a correction factor for the Kromery Converter by comparing
the same effect, i.e. the charging of the same battery from one specific
voltage to another specific voltage. The calculation of this factor is avilable
in the book "Experiments with a Kromery and a Brandt-Tesla converter built by
John Bedini" By Eike Mueller, with Comments by Tom Bearden. Table K-1 shows the
combined test results. Because we detected an increase in the speed of the
Kromery Converter as well as a decrease in the input energy when we increased
the output load, we decided to measure the input energy and speed when the
output was shorted. Again, the input energy dropped and the speed increased.

Using the earlier determined correction factor of 5.535 we calculated the
energy they put into the battery to 56.78 watts (from 10.26 * 5.535). Looking
at Table K-1 we see that it takes only 54.78 watts to run the Kromery Converter
when the output is shorted. This result led us to continue with theese tests
and load the converter output even more. The results of these tests can be seen
in Table K-2.
Here again, we detected that we would get a higher efficiency of the total
device, the more we load down the output side. This effect is totally
contradictory to the conventional laws of physics.

We used the Kromery correction factor for the First case, when we had connected
the battery to the converter output. We did not use this factor in both other
cases when we used resistors in the output circuit.
The above test results show that the efficiency of the Kromery Converter is
well above 100%.
