Hi guys

Who else has bought one of the fan kits from Rick? I've been doing a lot of messing around with it and am getting mixed results. I've tried charging a car battery and even after a long time it didn't even go above 12 volts. The voltage also settles down after a while.

Now I think the main problem is that I've left the wiring alone (he should've put a notice on the kit advising that to get it to work right it would need to be re-wound with such and such gauge wire...) so being that the wires are of the same gauge that would be the problem right? Anyone else have experience to share? It seems that the fan kit will overcharge batteries too. I assume this to be normal right?

I've also converted the parts and made a solid state bedini charger but it won't charge so good. I can charge batteries but it won't top up the batteries to the full capacity. It will barely even get them up to 75%.

It's wound on an air core 1 1/2" abs pipe 900 turns 34 gauge and 300 turns 24 gauge. I'm using two sets of the 900 turns for the main side of the solid state transformer and I have 2 sets of 300 turns of 24 gauge hooked up to FWBR's flowing into the capacitor discharge circuit as per the fan kit by rick (using an SCR hooked up to the capacitor). I can get it to tune good and produce some charging but it's nothing special. Part of me wants to give up on it but that is a very small part. :D I really need help! Has anyone got overunity using the solid state setup? Oh ya if anyone is wondering I'm using the same hookup as the impedance matching charger by Bedini. Except it's hooked up into the capacitor dump system.

Are the iron cores necessary? All I've noticed when having a metal rod inserted into the tube was a distinct ringing. The charging output was also reduced.

Thanks for the help!

Have you checked Bedini kit help please ? Also check out Free energy at last step by step . My posts about it start at around # 840 . You will read my problems with the fan kit. I am hoping to try getting a brushless electric radiator fan from a wrecker and trying the Rick circuit with that instead.

Thanks for the reply! Imhotep's youtube video is what got me started on this in the first place. I tried to build his fan design but didn't have the right parts. I'm still not happy about the misleading info from rick. I'm still in the belief that the fan is useless if not re-wound. Not saying I won't try it, but that it's extra money I don't have at the moment.

Now for the capacitor dumper: I realize it's used to turn the negative radiant energy into positive energy. This is the question. For larger batteries is it better to have higher uF capacitor? Does the capacitor need to be a/c? Just messing around with some 680uf 200v capacitor from a computer power supply it seems to be giving a nice low voltage. Problem again is that I can't fully top off a battery. A 9V hooked up for several hours still won't go above 9V but it'll power stuff for a short while so it is getting a charge. My guess is that the impedance matching is not quite set right. It needs a bit more of a kick. I try to tune the charger with the resistance values and I can get it to work good but it reaches a certain voltage just below the rated voltage of what I'm charging and then just sits there. Does it matter if I'm using 1/4 watt resistors or is a bigger resistor needed for the effect?

By the way. Is the solid state bedini the same as the impedance matching charger? I have a lot to learn, and it's frustrating that I can't get this thing to work. Please help :)

One more thing. My thoughts on the 400 volt spikes: why not build a transformer to turn it into lower volts but higher current to do work? Anyone try using a toroid transformer to achieve this?

Sorry I can not answer most of your questions. I had to partially rewind the fan
that came with the kit myself. One thing that you should keep in mind, is that the fan kit and circuit is meant to run on 24 volts. So you should have two 12v
batteries as source and two 12v batteries for charging. This could make a
difference.
