If you put a current sensing resistor on the negative line and measure across it, I can assure you very real work in measurable joules of energy is being done. You can add up that work using a scope that can record it and do an integrated power analysis like this: Detailed Integrated Power Analysis of Ainslie Circuit - YouTube That is just an example using the Ainslie circuit but you can know with a high degree of accuracy exactly how much work left the battery. If you start with 1000, that is the input work we had to pay for. Anything that we get in recovery batteries, that winds up doing work on its own, was after the fact of the 1000 initially spent. The investment of the input was only 1000. 1000 was not just the input, but that is also 1000 worth of work being done. If we recover 65% that is 650 worth of work that can be done from what winds up in the recovery battery and we put that on the front and use it up, we got another 650 worth of work done. If we recover 65% of that is 422 in work. We put that on the front and we can do 422 in work for example. There are obviously a lot of factors involved with this, it would run the energizer slower, etc... but the point is made. That is 1000 + 650 + 422 = 2072 units of work performed that is measurable and we only started with 1000. That is a cop of 2.072. Total work done compared to our input that we had to invest.
Aaron, ok you mean there is work to be had from the wire going to the charge battery, is this what you're referring to? The "Tesla switch effect"?

Mario
