Using multi-discipline innovative concepts, this device will re-invent battery storage - vehicles & transportation are potentially the most urgent applications
http://www.indiegogo.com/magnetic-battery/
This campaign will receive all of the funds contributed by Wed Oct 10 at 11:59PM PT.

What the Magnetic Battery is...
Following in the footsteps of Tesla, Maxwell, Farraday & Crookes, I've used concepts from electrodynamics, chemistry, magnetism and physics to devise a device that accepts both internal heat -basically a thermocouple- and Alternating Currents (AC) to convert the electricity into electromagnetic waves; circulating under lesser [high voltage] resistance and stored in-phase with the entire electromagnetic field, the scalar B flux acts as a seal between the surrounding alloys (preventing damage to circuitry and causing exposure) & a dense medium for transitional energy.

How it will be made...
The exoskeleton (chassis) will be made of a soft iron alloy to prevent EMR (electromagnetic radiation) from being emitted under unwanted circumstances and nullifying any energy that is stored.

Modern batteries function on closed-circuits, which nullifies the current when not attached to a load (outside of air conductivity). In order to maintain the magnetic field though, the current is required to be constantly moving. One circuit I invented is a trans-connection circuit (TCC); self-generating the current by mechanical means, inside a closed system.
If I was using DC power, the magnetic fields generated by the flow of current wouldn't move (unlike AC) due to constant voltage; however I need shifting waves working in conjunction with each other to amplify the signal.

There are few ways to convert the primary energy source from electromagnetism --> electricity. The most common way is by moving a piece of metal, like Iron, alternating past the face of a coil, cutting off the field lines.

What are the materials needed...
The materials that I need are mainly transition elements and alloys that I will need to melt & forge myself. Most are inexpensive, but one compound in particular is rare in its' purest form. Pretty much all types of circuitry components are needed (and will be sealed from EMR - except basic coils & some non-logical circuits).

I will also need to purchase several pounds of graphite to form the mold of the chassis, and upgrade some equipment to assemble the components.

Why it should be made...
Modern electrolyte batteries store a nominal voltage & current, which is not sufficient for nano-robotic battery inductors, electric vehicles or spacecrafts.

Imagine a modern electric car for example: Current battery banks consist of dozens of large (and low amp) 12volt batteries; this device could fit into a socket, emit electricity and not release any hazardous materials or radiation. It could store more than 700 times the amount of energy than the 12v battery alternative. Granted, this device won't be rated to operate at such low voltage, and due to another innovation, a higher voltage of current will allow for greater capacity than what I previously mentioned!

The design can be scaled to mostly any size, with exponential storage ability.
Besides, longer-life batteries means less toxic material in landfills, and less chemical pollutants from manufacturers!
If you take the effects a step further, you'll see how this concept affects everyone. Gasoline has a dominant role in creating Greenhouse emissions from hydrocarbons (which are warming the atmosphere); if your substitute the combustion engine/drive-shaft for batteries & DC motors, you're moving the propelling energy back to its source where greater amounts of efficiency can be attained.

How long will it take to make this device?
After gathering & testing components, and melting/forming the chassis, assembly will take roughly a month to complete the device.

How can I help? I'm glad you asked!

Hi Harrison. A few questions.

What's your background in this field?
Will these new batteries be more efficient than Lithium? If so do you have an comparison on the size and weight differences compared to those currently used in Electric vehicles, and Smartphones?

kingh
08-06-2012, 08:47 PM
My background with this field is that same as all others. Textbooks, trial-error & thought experiments.

Lithium batteries are based on the same concept that has been around for 4 millenniums; anode, cathode & electrolyte.
They're relatively efficient, but inherently lack significant storage capabilities; they use a chemical reaction to move electrons.
In comparison with vehicles in mind, the size and weight will be about the same. This device isn't meant to be used in
smartphones though, due to the shape.

Thanks for your Quick replies. Sorry I am not an expert in this field, thus my questions may seem ignorant to you. What is it that your battery offers which current battery technologies do not?

Significant storage capabilities. My math indicates 700 times more storage for the same relative size (referring to a 12v car battery). I should indicate that the multiple is referring to a similar voltage; however as the voltage increases in my battery, so does the capacity to hold more "energy".

FredTumac

That's quite impressive. Have you considered taking your idea to car manufacturers directly? If you can indeed decrease size by 700 times, that would be one of the biggest tech breakthroughs in the last 20 years in my opinion. I'm hoping you can really do this as it would be big, and make you a billionaire.

Hello Fred,

I have considered proposing the device schematics to car manufacturers, but so far all they're interested in is making cheap vehicles that are designed to fail. My great uncle invented means for a diesel engine to get 70mpg; the manufacturers bought the idea & scrapped any plans to implement it in their products. Until oil companies aren't reigning the manufacturer's decisions, I prefer to build a company and start by selling several batteries a year until they're subsidized and the price can go down. This way, everyone can benefit from my invention, not just me.

I'm not interested in becoming a billionaire, but if it does happen I know exactly how I would invest it! There are too many people in this world impoverished and illiterate due to greed.

Thank you for your time,
Harrison King

That is exactly right, Lou. I think that people who help launch this project the most should be rewarded for their investment.
Be sure to click on the anti-ferro perk so there won't be any confusion later, if you still would like to invest.

My most gracious thanks!

Gotta say, the partnership reward is intriguing. Do you have a prototype of the battery? Do you have proof of these qualities you claim exist?

kingh
08-08-2012, 10:40 AM
Hello Trent,

I do have proof that I made & worked out the designs, schematic and theorem, but I don't have a prototype. In order to build a working model, the key part costs $1,800 alone.

Thanks for the question,
Harrison King

Thank you Lelocks Trent. I'm quite eager to materialize this device, as you can imagine.
After I build the prototype, I'll be doing a second [smaller] fundraiser for four high-rpm motors to convert an old ford truck I have, to do touring with.
I'll keep everyone posted!

Hi,
Your invention seems impressive. I'm concerned about its future. There are other people who invented great things (nonetheless Nikola Tesla) and those inventions disappeared. Patent is the way if you're hoping for big returns. But it's not quite sure there will be. A big company will attack you for using one (or more) of their patents, and you won't be able to respond. Or another will buy your invention and send it directly to the trash.
Maybe I'm a bit paranoid. But it has happened before.
If you want to make sure this invention will be used, the best way is to deliver it in a free manner (free as in free speech)

For more background:

[2] The danger of Software Patents (can easily be extended to other patents)

Hope your invention will be used (and you'll be famous and rich too, but it's not my primary concern.) Anyway, I'll contribute to this project.

Hello Dr4ke,

Thank you for your contribution! The main reason why I sent the schematics for patenting was to insure production rights. It will be free so anyone can build the device, but just not sell it. I appreciate the links too, will definitely check them out!

I would like to let people know that Indiegogo has deleted this campaign..
I'm in the process of finding out why, and possibly am warning everyone against this site.

A few days ago, Indiegogo froze my campaign (http://crowdfundingforum.com/showthread.php/616-Be-Warned-of-Indiegogo). I've tried several different techniques to contact them, with over two dozen phone calls and still I haven't found the reason for it! Nobody has answered!

If people want to check and verify, try to call Indiegogo's customer "happiness" @ (866-641-4646)... You'll never get a response.
There are varying posts online that funds were refunded with a significant delay, or not at all. I just filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau (http://www.bbb.org/greater-san-francisco/business-reviews/internet-services/indiegogo-in-san-francisco-ca-372843) regarding the only sector I could, their customer service.

I also appreciate everyone contacting Indiegogo's online feedback form (http://www.indiegogo.com/about/contact?category=FBCT_BUGB) and urging them to stop discriminating & suppressing the magnetic battery campaign.

Thank you!
Harrison

Good news! I finally contacted an Indiegogo's representative who relayed the information forward. There's a good chance the campaign will be back in full swing before the end of tomorrow.

The reasoning they gave me was, "Risk Management" and required verification. Unfortunately, they didn't send me that message. If you ever need to contact Indiegogo via phone, I suggest using the directory code #7005; the woman who answered was quite helpful!

Thank you to everyone who sent feedback & helped save this campaign!

Wonder why would they do it without offering a reason. Strange and quite unfair!

Harrison - If your assertions and conclusions are correct, you
might be on to something here. Is it patentable? Do you have
any sort of protection? Remember, an NDA isn't worth the paper
it's written on. You might want to get a USPTO Disclosure
Document - http://1.usa.gov/Pinbyl & register your project.
Cost $10 - I have several. Check it out - I've heard they were
going to discontinue it. You can also register it here free:
https://www.registeredworks.com Just don't include the
'secret-sauce' if there is any.

The next step might be to find a well-connected patent
attorney as a 'partner.'

Hello Skystar,

I've already sent the documents to the USPTO for a provisional patent. The ideas are original on their own, but still based on existing devices.
As for the webpage, it might take a few days to get the campaign 'unfrozen' again; as Indiegogo is extremely slow with their customer service, and require constant cues.

Thanks,
Harrison
