Exclamation Rick Friedrich R-Charge Scam

This just came up in Google when looking for some EnergenX links:

Read the blog -

In the early to mid 2000’s, Rick Friedrich proposed a business deal to EnergenX, Inc., a company headed up by a world famous electrical engineer, John Bedini. Rick Friedrich’s desire was to private label battery chargers and rejuvenators built by John Bedini’s company. Rick Friedrich‘s company name was Renaissance Charge or R-Charge for short.

Rick Friedrich signed a non-disclosure agreement with EnergenX and promised to respect the confidentiality of John Bedini’s proprietary information that went into the chargers. This intellectual property was the sole property of John Bedini and EnergenX.

A few years ago, around 2011, it was discovered that Rick Friedrich had been involved in some shady business deals with many customers in addition to discovering the disappearance of hardware that was the property of EnergenX. It was also discovered that Rick Friedrich had been accessing John Bedini’s computers by sneaking into the building at night and going through the files.

There were also some energizer kits based on John Bedini’s “SG” designs that were manufactured and distributed by Rick Friedrich. One of the larger units was sold by him to someone for thousands of dollars. As soon as Rick Friedrich of R-Charge had this money, he immediately commenced to sell this exact same unit to someone else for the same amount of money. This is one of countless incidents that Rick Friedrich had done to a number of customers.

This quickly became the normal course of operation for Rick Friedrich and John Bedini and his associates and company wanted nothing more to do with him or his way of doing business. Rick Friedrich‘s relationship with EnergenX was immediately terminated and he got the boot. Immediately, Rick Friedrich began to manufacture and sell battery chargers based on EnergenX’s proprietary circuits, albeit older obsolete ones, but nevertheless, this was all in complete violation of the non disclosure agreement that he signed with EnergenX.

Since then, EnergenX and its distributors have collectively received many dozens of complaints from customers because of purchasing battery chargers and never receiving product. These complaints included the fact that they never received customer service. Many of these complaints also included the fact that many of the chargers did not work, worked a short time or simply did not do as claimed. What surprised everyone is when they learned that Rick Friedrich and R-Charge actually had no further relationship with EnergenX and that he was illegally selling low quality bootlegged versions of John Bedini’s chargers.

To this day, Rick Friedrich continues to sell his low quality pirated versions of these chargers and he also holds mini-conferences claiming to be an expert in “free energy” technologies. He claims to be a man of God and most of his websites are dedicated to him preaching the Gospel to others. This is all one big hypocritical act because the truth is that he is nothing more than a common thief and we challenge him to prove otherwise.

If you have been personally ripped off or hoodwinked by Rick Friedrich the charlatan, we invite you to please contact us and submit your story. If you can include your real name, email, mailing address and phone number, we are going to compile all of these complaints and submit them to the Attorney General as long as various federal agencies because the time has come for his dog and pony show to come to and end.

Please let us know if we can post your complaint publicly on this website. We will remove your personal contact information but would like to list your name and location. If you want to remain anonymous, we will respect that as well. If you do not want us to list your complaint at all, that is fine and we will simply reserve it for the Attorney General.

Please submit your complaints here: https://rickfriedrich.wordpress.com/contact/

Hi pentarbe, the following is a response from Rick Friedrich:

Personal Attacks against me for promoting Free Energy Technology.

Recently I decided to finally give a response to the slander of John
Bedini against me and set the record straight considering that he has
recently passed away and never bothered to clear up a slander he published
against me. I ignored this for about four years as he was the type to want
to fight about things and I wasn't going to satisfy him in that way. After
I recently posted a series of videos of John and I working together and
details about our relationship in these matters I expected some more
attacks which have now started. Here are my videos that give a little
sliver of the real story:

Why John Bedini and Rick Friedrich Parted Ways.

Bedini Tesla Switch, What's wrong with it? It KILLS Batteries!

Charge Convention.

John C Bedini 14' Ferris Wheel Construction Typical Day in the Shop Part 2

John C Bedini 14' Ferris Wheel Construction Pre-Convention Setup Part 3

[The next video only indirectly pertains to what I am saying here, and
that is that I had a close relationship with John and we did many videos
together like this.]
Howard Johnson's Original Trains Demonstration with John Bedini and Rick

The following in quotation was posted on a website and reposted on a
competitors forum by a person who is unwilling to share who they are,
which should be a sign that their attacks are cowardly and mistaken. See
if you can connect the dots:

“In the early to mid 2000’s, Rick Friedrich proposed a business deal to
EnergenX, Inc., a company headed up by a world famous electrical engineer,
John Bedini.”

In the mid 2000's I volunteered to help people in finding free energy
systems. Renaissance Charge was later started to sell battery chargers
invented by several people, one of whom was me. The idea of each charger
and much of its functionality was created by me. I never signed any
contract with any company pertaining to these chargers. They were a mutual
effort. I did the testing of them and it was my label that was always on
these chargers. There is no patent on these chargers. And Energenx patents
expired two years ago, and I never violated their patents with these
chargers. I have presented video evidence of these facts.

non disclosure agreement

so lets just say JB sent me a copy of Ricks non disclosure... so Rick is a liar, I have seen the non disclosure myself. when John emailed it to rick a copy of it, he accused them of forgery. but you see I was there when he signed it, we did it at the same time in front of Gary. we were all there and saw it first hand. I have never seen anyone who says so much while saying so little, its always a he said -he said with him, and whoever has the hours to write nonsense wins.

its almost impossible to answer him because he is so verbose, it would take hours and hours to respond to each point. that is his mode of operation, talk so much, lie so consistently that you just wave your hands and walk away.

There was a time when he worked in concert with JB of course, there was a time when I worked closely with him also. John initiated the termination of the working relationship with him for so many reasons.

over half of what he posted is just simply a lie, he is a pathalogical liar. I talked with Ronda B and she asked me if there was any way to get his crap off of youtube, the Bedini's were screwed over by him so many times and so many ways. Eventually we will put up some info that will be plain for all to see.

I asked him to remove my testimonial video from his website and even sent him the case law to show how it was illegal to continue to use it. he refused, and said i could sue him.

This can quickly become a shouting match, but you only have to know a few things. those of us, all of us that were closest to him, those that helped him at the conferences for free, those that put in 20+ hours for a week, that moderated his forums and handled warranty emails for free, all of us, as a man have repudiated his business and his dealings. He screwed over his investors.

I know the guy who paid for that 30 coil machine, it was meant to be a research tool. Rick sold it to some chinese investors, and did not tell my friend who paid 13 grand to have it built. oh he sold it for 30K my friend was apoplectic when he heard about it.

rick did all of this without John and Gary's permission. John actually told the chinese not to buy it, but they did anyway.

I have pictures of me in china with the investors, I did not know the 30 coil went their until I saw it in their lab. they asked me to come over and do some work with the machines, this was after their relationship with Rick went south.

rick, who claims to be a man of God, mocked my faith publicly in front of His family, and in front of Ronda and John, when we were at dinner at the first sandpoint conference.

if he has changed good for him, but he needs to come clean in his dealings.

the time will come when he will have to pay for his dealings.

Rick's response:

Who is the liar Tom? Now I have you on record as a liar. You were there
when? You came around a few times, and I believe only to one convention
(and maybe Sandpoint also). Are you saying I signed some document in front
of you?? What a joke. What year was that? 2005 when I first visited? You
were not even around then. If they wanted me to sign something it would
have been at the beginning when I saw everything and even filmed it. But
in fact John wanted me and my staff to sign NDS's when we were moving away
in 2012! We just laughed about that yesterday. You were not there when we
were leaving or at the beginning. You do not have proof as I do. So do I
put your name on a paper and tell everyone you have a NDA with me? I'm
sure everyone will believe that. I'm sure you were also there when they
signed the Magna Carta which makes you so credible Tom. You can make up
whatever story you want, but it will not fit with the facts. People sign
NDAs before they see private information. You were never around, only a
few times. You were not around at the beginning. So you just proved you
are a liar. You and Koorn stand to gain as my competition. Everyone can
see this. You make yourself like some kind of big player in all this, but
you were just a groupy. I know what that was like as I fell into that
myself at the beginning. But it is time for children to grow up and stop
idolizing a man who was not what you make him out to be. You don't even
know what he said about you and Koorn and others like you. He cared less
about you. I recorded him at the end saying so much stuff about people
like you. He had little respect for anyone. You guys never knew what you
were doing and never understood the technology. People saw that. Marcia
did a better job of moderating. You guys tried but you never really got
how this stuff works. But it was clear you just wanted to be part of the
action and a cool guy in the mix. So you betrayed me in the end and you
served your master. And no you really didn't know him. I knew these guys
for years daily. You just came to visit a few times to listen to stories.
You and Koorn knew nothing of the day to day operations at Energenx.
People who came around a few times a year had no idea of what happened. I
showed in video what it was like for everyone to see. This contradicts
everything you guys say.

What a dog this guy Rick is, telling people to do something
constructive and at the end he sort of threatens like
watch it you will be sorry poke.

Rick is the one who is sorry now because John let us all know how
you went behind his back. The other gentlemen has always been true
to John B. and now we are suppose to fall down and tremble in Ricks

Give me a break. Rick you are deranged, you are the fabricator a
sneak and a back stabber. At least when we deal with others they tell
us what they think but not you Rick, you go around behind our backs
and try to come off as some holy man/god=man.

How insulting to the self existent one. You would be better off having a
few beers and cuss at people, speaking your true mind but you slink
around projecting yourself as this super gift of your little god who steals
stuff and won't feel bad about it.

When I see your video's I want to puke. You make me sick with your
suedo-spirituallaity, trying to put fear onto others for coming against
your lies that will be pointed out.

No one is afraid of you here, we know the truth. You are a thief and a liar
who wants to be welcomed back into the group without regard for your
actions to one of the greatest leaders of the free energy world.

I do not respect you and no one else will either. A gutless guy.

Prancing around folding your hands in Jesus name-When Jesus
told you to drop to your knees when you are wrong and cry out.

Not you, you want everyone to fall down and pray to you for your
guidance as some sort of free energy guru who deserves everyone's

You got to ask forgiveness and I see no sign of that, the average
guys does that when he is wrong, but not you Rick. You are a basket
case of freaky spirits from hell as far as I can see.

Now maybe you can change someday. For now what I see is your
demand to be honored for what you have selfishly beaten out of an
generous man.

Now go and sin no more or I'll dig up your whole story where people
got ripped off by you every time they turn around. I get ticked when
people like you threaten others when they correct you.

I have seen how you delete all of the facts of the real details on
your YOUTUBE video's thinking you are going to silence those who
correct you or question your repentance.

Nope, not you, you just delete the truth and hide your lies, I have watched
over your video's, this is how you think you can control what gets heard
and what gets swept under the rug.

I am sure you are or seem like a nice guy on the surface but that is
not the point here. Now you have been told the truth. Finally.

Well as you can see everyone, it was like I said, he writes so much and says so little. it would take hours and hours to unwind the fable that is ricks response.

This stuff so easily can turn into a cat fight.

it is often the case with Rick that he wraps a lie in the truth and then expounds upon it.

I moderated the yahoo groups until the Day John Bedini had them shut down and moved to energy science forum. they were John's, his name and he was the owner.

Hundreds of emails from hundreds of disgruntled customers, non responsive from Rick and Dan, all he said was please forward, so we did. still have them from the yahoo groups...

Brett programmed those chargers, not Rick. Brett would work all night and be found asleep at his desk in the mornings. an amazing man who did amazing work.

I was at all of the conventions except year 1 of the ferris wheel, which was 2011 I believe, and worked all of them for free. Rick promised us a hotel room for 2012 and we ended up sleeping on the floor of his shop upstairs, and we showered with a water hose attached to a sink.

I worked on all the machines including the 30 coil machine, the 12 coil with the slant rotor, along with Erik and Josh. they were not designed by Rick, but by another person. That person was never paid for molds, design, work or cad work. he was just able to sell parts. talked with him today as a matter of fact....

I got the 4 pole junior and senior running, there was not enough power from the trigger so I had to scavenge a few wires to get more to the base circuits, you don't remember that Rick because you were not there, but John B was.

I worked on the trailer for the 20 foot ferris wheel that Rick never built, I helped wind tiny window motor coils, and assembled kits with Rick's dad, I worked on the lawnmower till midnight several nights, along with Samuel shoham from Israel.

After Rick departed, I talked with many people that surrounded him in Idaho. Melissa, who was Johns shop tech, neighbors, former employees like vitalie, and mostly Gary and John Himself.

as far as my sales. I told you the cost that people would be able to bear in the market I was selling to. I told you how much cash I had. and what the owners were willing to pay. I would have bought 24 of them, if you could have got the cost down, but glad I did not, they only lasted a few years. I asked John why they broke, he showed me where Rick had swapped out components to save money. once he actually told Melissa to use the wrong resistor in a circuit, that whole batch of potted control boards went bad in the field. John had a fit. I heard this from John myself.

I have personally seen 12 to 1 on the bench and have looped and self run... but you see I honor The NDA that I did sign, so I don't show or talk about things that I was asked not to. so lets just say that you telling me I don't know what I am talking about is a crock.

you did not go to china rick, because you are Canadian, and could not get a passport to travel, that is what you told me.

you see what I mean everyone, its a lie wrapped in a nugget of truth, He did not go to china, but his reason for why is wrong...

I am sorry I do not have time to answer all of the things Rick has said. but lets just say they are almost all lies.

Rick is a pathological liar, it gets lost in his verbosity. so much to say so many stories, so much untrue.

so many people burned and a path of destruction in his wake.

People have met me and know me...... they know how I conduct business, they know how Teslagenx handles phone calls, emails, texts and warranty. I paid John up front for every unit sold, paid in advance for every charger or tracker ordered, we handle all of the warranty our self, including all repairs, including shipping damage.

When the acrylic kits were selling and sold out, we gave people money back that did not get theirs.

There are still people out there that have not received, DVD's, kits. kit parts, chargers, and components from Rick. TO THIS DAY.

enough said, I am thru with this.

Bottom line is, Rick knew nothing when he met John, still knows nothing, all his circuits are John's or Peters,

I have drawings form the early 80's that show rick's supposed loving paths circuits.

his dual pole motors, are from a machine John made in '96

the machine with the north south magnets, with the S1 switch, is something he worked on with John.

nothing of Ricks is original. he Designed nothing. Johns circuits, Johns chargers, Johns solar trackers.

Rick would be nothing without John Bedini.

Rick burned his bridge with John and hundreds of people over the last decade.

I am done here.

Ricks response:

Now we all can see that you worship John (see countless examples).
As everyone can see, Tom focuses on what he wants to and fails to respond
to what is important. He runs away because he is only here to try and
create suspicion and slander to profit his own business. I am not here to
prove myself innocent but simply to bring attention to the truth. I have
admitted that I have let people down. Tom cannot admit any mistakes and
also claims that Bedini and camp never made a mistake. So who seems
realistic to everyone? Someone who actually wasn't there but acts like he
was? Someone who only stands to gain by attacking me? Someone who gives no
credit where it is due? I give Bedini credit and will show that in a video
this weekend. But I will not say he invented sliced bread as Tom and his
groupies want you to believe. It is hard to say really what John actually
invented. Almost everything I have seen of his work I see others did
before him. So why is Tom attacking me? Not just because he wants to build
up his business, but because the Mystique of Bedini is being threatened by
me showing the history and what Bedini didn't give to the world. Look
people, I would not do any of this for any other reason than I get
countless people in the FE community all over the world contacting me and
revealing their confusion about these things and wasting their time and
money with fairy tales. It is time to point people in the right direction
and not point them to some 'Legend' that kept us all in a mystery and
never used the technology he claimed he had, and how he never sold you
anything practical along those lines. Yes, John did not give you kits, I
did. He said not to do it. He said people didn't deserve it. All who read
his countless emails know this attitude. Even the generator he did put out
in the 80s didn't do anything practical at all. I had one for a long time
and it didn't do anything. I also had access to his museum which had the
originals for years. So the public has a right to know and they have asked
me these questions countless times for 13 years now: Why didn't John use
free energy himself? Why did he not sell it? Why did he not make things
clear? The only suggestion is a conspiracy theory that he gave us that
cannot be verified: He was threatened by two agency thugs to buy gas the
rest of his life. Many people will then justify all his actions, and even
actions against me and so many other people, because of this one
unverifiable tale. The skeptics think it is because he really didn't have
anything. The followers believe everything he said. But the truth is that
he did have a lot of things figured out, but that he got that from others
and just didn't let you know that. Why is Tom so upset with me sharing
this and getting to the real truth of the matter?

Rick you're dealing with specific details based on your warped
view of the world. Your long essay tells us that YOU are the reason
John's kits got built because John was a bad man by keeping them
from the public. But you saved us, didn't you?

This is mental. Here you put yourself above John telling the world
John is wrong, had nothing of his own so you were sent by God to
right these wrongs. Your so called "LOVING CIRCUITS" video's are
nothing more than a further assessment that you are freely giving away secrets that you had to take from John because John was wrong to
with withhold them. All of this out of love?

Love does not steal and lie.

Your she said he said they said of specific events pale in comparison
to your self proclaimed righteous bullying thinking how smooth you
must have thought you were sitting in John's offices premeditating
your strategy.

Plus you justify everything you did as Holy and good. You want people
to think John had nothing without you. This a joke of course.

You have called John a hypocrite and unrighteous in his deeds, for this
you have strengthened yourself in your resolve to formulate your plan
to violate your agreements to keep secrets.

At the same time mocking behind John's back in your emails sent to
others who were possible candidate in your fundraiser. Your words now
and your words in the secret emails reveal the same RICK.

John has been sharing his findings for many decades before you came
along and had always given freely. The SSG for beginners is still an
important contribution to the world today. You were not born yet.

You have not surprised or fooled anyone but yourself. It is unthinkable
to steal and justify yourself as a hero to the people putting John down
for not doing what he did not want to do.

John is a great man and always stated that people should build his
circuits first then they could make it better later. Each person can
do more or something new in the next 40 years and this is John's

John's dream came true. John started great things. Rick is a freak
show who thinks people will side with his methods that he thinks
that the end justifies the means. Like some sort of war hero Rick
wants us to pat him on the back for his evil venom biting the hand
that fed him. The great man that took him under his wing.

This is unthinkable. Rick thinks that people will thank him for revealing
that John was a fraud and a liar. How nice.

What a great guy Rick is. Thanks so much Rick for your evaluation.

It is these types of spirits that with be held in chains of everlasting
contempt, tormented in the presences of Christ and HIS Holy angels.

You see to these manifestations Ricks torment is and will always be that
he can never out do one of the greatest inventors of all time. Try tho he may.

No unclean thing will be permitted. Rick is the manifestation of many
unclean spirits. Legion.

well there you have it!! Mr verbosity strikes again. such a tool.... never heard of a comma or a page break...

now you understand why over here on the west coast we have kept our mouths shut about him it was easier to ignore him than to spend thousands and thousands of dollars on attorneys and time.

I would have kept my mouth shut if you would have kept yours shut rick, you have brought this on yourself.

every word you type proves my point, .... you were planning on taking everything from the Bedini's it was obviously in your heart from the beginning.

I am and will continue to Be John' and Gary's friend in death as in life. I will defend him, his family and his contribution to the world.you introduced me to them rick for that I m thankful, but that is where it ends.

you say I am a fan boy. guilty a charged....saw so many amazing things in his shop. so many things he was not able to share as it would have gotten him killed.

Feel free to belittle my contributions to the conferences, and to the forums, and to friends that's ok.... I don't mind you can treat me like crap all you want. I have not told a single lie, I will sit for a polygraph, and I will pay for you to sit for one too. there is a few questions I would like to ask you under oath.

I will film it unedited and let the world see it. you can do the same.

here is some in your area:

Michigan Polygraph Services in , Michigan with Reviews - YP.com

have them email me at service@teslagenx.com after you consult with them, I will send them a credit card and a list of questions they can ask you. I will spend up to 500 dollars on this. I am sure there are a few more people who might like to kick in a few dollars and some questions...

the ball is in your court Rick, lets settle this liar thing once and for all.
