Ah, batteries. They always die sooner than you think, right? Not this one! Called Karpen’s Pile, this battery has been working uninterrupted. Anyone not familiar with “Karpen’s Pile” might want to do a quick search before reading the rest of this, you just need to spend 30 seconds.

This would rule out the possibility that the dissimilar metal electrodes or some other part of the circuit is rectifying alternating electromagnetic waves like a radio detector. It could be Dracula flying back and forth thereby recharging the batteries. Some scientists say the device works by transforming thermal energy into mechanical work, but Diaconescu doesn’t subscribe to this theory. The electrostatic field of Platinum will pull electrons from the Gold atoms due to which the Gold karpe will get positively charged and the Platitum atoms will turn neutral.

A Battery That Produces Energy Continuously Since 1950 Exists in a Romanian Museum — Karpen’s Pile

In fact after reading this you might even think I’m a bit dense. Lithium Sulphur Batteries Directory: If someone wants to start a new thread about graphene batteries, go right ahead.

This probably isn’t a “proof” answer like you’re asking in the question, but aside from the “we can’t put it into an exposition because we can’t afford security” line it sounds suspicious as hell — not to karpeb similar to the Oxford Bell which has a number of similar characteristics and most definitely isn’t an infinite energy source, merely a very efficient battery delivering a very small charge to keep something very simple running According to Wikipedia, the Karpen Pile is:.

Oh yea, obviously they wouldn’t know Griffiths from Sakurai if I were throwing them at them. Battery Reconditioning and Recycling OS: Producing Energy Continuously Since A scientist can demonstrate that it is possible to tap the energy of space but we will not believe him because what must not be can not be, in other words, what can not be explained by our scientific world view must not be examined Just as most of us kzrpen remember exactly where we were and what we were doing when the planes flew into the Twin Towers in New York City in Posted by Sepp on January 11, 2: Um, while you guys were piling discouragement onto the ‘crackpot’ who started the thread, it seems as if a team of researchers at Hong Kong Polytechnic was working on pretty much this very idea.


Figures 1, 2, and 3 indicate the various shapes of performing of the pile, object of the invention.

“The battery that isn’t a battery” – my own simple theory. – xkcd

Gold leaf is really cheap, and gold-plated things are also really cheap around here, you typically get a gold-plated connector any time you buy audio equipment. I also have trouble believing it is illegal to get sulfuric acid in Sweden — if not, what do you use in your car batteries? Do you have a chronic degenerative disease?

This happened on Feb. For the odd electron to get smacked out of orbit from the first layer my guess was that it could be done by either a liquid or gas that would provide a constant bombardment of molecules And thus we are where we are now, with an article that is the result of well-intentioned copy editors tidying up after plagiarists: Karpen’s perpetual motion machine now sits secured right in the director’s office. Set on top of gold foil.

He introduced electrically transmitted “wired telegrams” in the Old Romanian Kingdom by The problem is that by claiming that 1 it can’t be reproduced because they don’t know what went in it and 2 they can’t even put it on display because they don’t have the money to protect it from thieves hint hintthey kzrpen it impossible to conclusively disprove.

It doesn’t give the thing a single whit of actual credibility anywhere outside sensationalist reporting, though. As a result of his efforts, the School was transformed later that year into the Polytechnic University of Bucharest.

AA cells can be up in to mA-hours. Crackpot might be a bit of editorialising, but TMT hits a valid point – a theory has verifiable evidence supporting it. It’s not an impossibility to harvest the energy that karpe “out there”. Our museum has been able to keep it, though. Place platinum on top of cloth.


Nicolae Vasilescu-Karpen – Wikipedia

I know that the abstract concept may be thought to violate a series of principles of physics, but perhaps there’s some validity to the claim, as it might harvest energy rather than only generate it. Nicolae Vasilescu Karpen December 10 O. Silver Polymer Batteries Directory: Science Hobbyist page http: Physics problems, chemistry equations, biology weirdness, it all goes here.

The cell is just as basic as it gets: I am absolute sure that there are many inventions of great genius, and they karpn made it any further then the room of the inventor JdeBP 2 5.

Fuel Cells There was an error working with the wiki: Electrical Pile — The object of the present invention is an electrical pile transformer of heat of the ambient medium into electrical energy [thermoelectric battery]. The motor moves a blade that is connected to a switch.

Karpen’s Pile: A Battery That Produces Energy Continuously Since 1950 Exists in Romanian Museum

To them I say, “ha ha ha! You don’t have a theory, you have a crackpot hypothesis with no verifiable experimental underpinnings. This page provides an excerpt from the French patent, and a translation to English. Our friends seem to be genetically more similar to us than strangers, according to a new U. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Although it should have stopped working decades ago, it didn’t. Mike Emery said by email: Because it has attracted low-quality or spam pjle that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site the association bonus does not count.

Isn’t this absolute amazing? I don’t really see any reason to keep it unlocked. Anyone plie familiar with “Karpen’s Pile” might want lile do a quick search before reading the rest of this, you just need to spend 30 seconds reading to get the basic idea.
