Patterson cell


Hi, i was only wondering if anybody here have seen the "Patterson power cell"?

I would very much like to make one of my own and see if it works.

Thanks in advance.

If such a device actually did work, I think we'd all know it by now . . . ?

United States Patent 5494559 is evidence one can patent a wart on a monkey's ass. I'll believe in it when Walmart has it on sale.

Well, you know if it pose a threat to big corporations i wouldnt be surprised if the cell is being suppressed in some way.

This is not the place for random conspiracy theories. There are clear evidence that oil companies fueled the nuclear opposition, but that's a far cry from suppressing emerging technology. Fact is that cold fusion/LENR has no support among scientists, nor have they been able to produce reliable, repeatable results.

Could there be something there? Idunno, maybe. But this is rarely how it works within physics.

Yeah, i understand. I wont do that anymore. I just wondered if any one had some experience with this cell, or with LEN reactions in general?

From what i understand there has been problems replicating these reactions, so its pretty unreliable. But if they find a way to work every single time, not 3 out of 5 or 10 it will replace the nuclear plants we have today.

I wonder why its so hard to replicate these reactions? Any ideas?

The most likely one is that it's bunk. There are several red flags, one is the fact that it's inconsistent with our current understanding of physics. That in itself isn't proof against it, but it does place this within the field of extraordinary claims which require extraordinary proof.
The second is the level of secrecy and proprietary, unless ALL data is made available it's virtually impossible to replicate anything. The third one is the devices and experiments themselves, focusing on energy output which can be hard to detect and interpret. A proper experiment on the viability of LENR should focus on detecting the reaction products.
