Free Energy Device Goes On Sale In Brazil Producing 12.1KW With Just 21 Watts Input

Two Brazilian inventors, Nilson Barbosa and Cleriston Leal, claim to have invented a free energy device and are now selling this device to the public in the Brazilian city of Imperatriz, Maranhão. The device is called the Earth Electron Captor Generator, or “GERADOR CAPTOR DE ELÉTRONS DA TERRA” in Portuguese.

They are presently only offering the device to people who live in the city of Imperatriz. However, they are working to license production with several manufacturing firms that will allow for online sales. Their website says they will update their page with distributor information when it becomes available.

Here’s a video that apparently shows the device being used to power an industrial facility in Brazil. This video was published on October 3, 2013, not too long after the device went on sale. If this is a hoax, it’s a pretty damn elaborate one.

Free as in cost? Nope
Free as in free to reproduce? Nope
Free as in free to use? Nope
Free as in free to distribute? Nope
Free of anything? Then you would have to specify what it would be free of.

I like innovations like this, even if they are a mere stepping stone. But don't misuse the word free.

Common Misdirection Tactic ...

Free Energy ...duh
Free from Foreign Oil ... duh
Free from Monthly Electrical Bills forever.. duh
Free and Cleaner Air from the use of Oil based Fuels.. duh
Freedom from Pulling up to the gas pump ever again... duh

Disinfo guys jumped on this one pretty quick huh..

That's a leap of an argument.

That's a leap of an argument.

Terms of discussion, please

Is the sun's energy "free"?

Why is this such a hard concept for so many to grasp???

We generate "free energy" from dams 24/7 all over the world.

It's an amazing miracle! The flow of water just never stops!

Why is it so impossible to comprehend that there is an energy flow in the Universe that is constantly there, cycling around, just like water does on the planet Earth? If we can just find a way to harness it, like a dam does with the water, we can generate energy.

Makes perfect sense to me and violates no fundamental laws of physics.

Buy one device, and own it.

Buy one device, and own it. Confirm the findings, and make it available to anyone to see it. I have yet to see one happy customer. All I see is advertisement from manufacturers, but not a single word from actual users.

Let's get serious.

If this amazing source of energy would be real, it would have been used for tons of military applications: drones, planes, aircraft carriers.

People are entitle to think and to write what they want, however there are laws of physics. Unless you do have at least minor experience or education in electronics and engineering (i have), do not just say that it "violates no laws of physics".

There is energy in space, however we are talking about very low and impracticable quantities.

Solar power is real and one square yard can power a laptop, but you cannot power your Prius.

Disinformation Troll ..

Tesla proved this with the Wardenclffye project in 1907 ...

and well seeing as how he invented/designed nearly every form of electrical device in use on our planet today ... you should avoid even using the term "Laws of Physics" because obviously you know nothing about them ..

do you really think you are doing any good .. ??

Proved what?

Tesla proved this with the Wardenclffye project in 1907 ...

The article you linked to says the tower was never completed. It "was to be used by Tesla" makes it sound like it was never actually used. The pictures on the page are artists conceptions about what it would have looked like if it worked. What are you saying he proved in 1907?

Because it ISN'T free energy

Dams are powered by water collected in a reservoir. The water pressure due to gravity acting upon the water is the energy that is extracted to work the generators to produce electricity.

The water doesn't just magically fill the reservoir either. It is literally the power of the sun that evaporates water that then falls as rain, and eventually flows into the reservoir.

You cannot CREATE energy, only collect it. Through work (the physics definition of work) you can power a generator, or with solar panels you can harness the energy of the sun. That is pretty much it.

Open your mind.... ;)

You are thinking of energy only in the terms we currently understand it.

I am asking you to imagine that there is an energy flow cycling constantly within every spec of matter in the Universe. Maybe even anti-matter too!

I am pretty sure guys like Nassim Haramein and The Resonance Foundation are actually pretty close to writing the papers to prove this is more than just something to imagine.

It's really simple, and your

It's really simple, and your right kinda. Absent a big bang, energy cannot be created. No form can be created but it can be transferred. Sun LIGHT energy converted to ELECTRICAL energy. Sun LIGHT energy converted to HEAT energy in solar hot water system.

AS I said you are correct there is energy swirling all around us and every spec of matter, but it is very, very low energy if it wasn't all of those particles free flowing would cook you like a microwave.

I remember seeing this discussion here before

It was about building your own magnetic generator using an alternator; can't seem to find the exact post. Here's one

Ugh.. this only works when

Ugh.. this only works when you're near a black hole.

Brooklyn Bridge, cheap, if you buy today

If this thing was working they would not need to advertise. People, happy customers, would do advertising for them.

Those who know about sales techniques can see artificial scarcity message hidden: "product will be only offered to those who live in one particular city".

As a matter of fact, space does have energy, but it is not what they are selling. Anybody can make a radio receiver (without batteries) and listen to the radio, however it is an ultra low power device.

they arent saying "Free energy" that breaks laws of physics

they are saying they have tapped an abundant energy resource that was previously not being used. This would not break any laws of physics.

to those below who are saying it is "bunk" then how do you know?

Tesla produced practical solutions of Maxwell's equations.

Marconi sent and detected radio waves.

Today we use microwave ovens.

Measuring magnetic and electrical potentials is 200 year old technology. There is electromagnetic energy but to collect that much would require a huge collector or a strong electromagnetic field.

Drive down the road at 15, 25, 35 Knots, with you hand out the window.

Then google windmills and find out how big a wind is needed to get 21kw output.

A 21kw generator-set using a 1.6L engine will burn 4 gallons of propane/hr. One tank per hour.

Free includes debt-free!

It's bogus

There's nothing about the videos, patents or web site that doesn't scream "bogus" but if anyone is interested in following the story here's a better article:

I've got some oceanfront property in Arizona for sale cheap...

for anyone interested.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

I love how people think that

I love how people think that they know free energy technology won't ever be discovered when not even scientists know if it is possible or not... I'm not saying this particular product works or not, but is it really out of the question that new technology like this can be found??

Just think about that for a second... Are you being everything THEY want you to be? No one is saying buy the product, but at least try to understand how it works before you shut the whole idea down. Tesla had a vision with no science behind his inventions, then came the science after. He built things no one had ever thought of before.. It just takes an out of the box mind set to get this type of technology started because that nay say before you know anything attitude is not getting us anywhere, but paying power companies billions every year.

Get your ego out of the way of not wanting to be wrong all the time and delve into the possibilities. Maybe you will find out new things you've never thought of before. Allow yourself to learn.

I read the patent

The thing is bunk.

What did it say? I didn't say

What did it say?

I didn't say it was real. I was talking about the technology itself btw.

I read some place lightning strikes a 1,000 a second,

it may have been a million times a second, I don't remember, but it's a huge amount of energy. So there is a vast amount of electrical energy all around us in the atmosphere, why can't that energy be harvested? The energy is there, that's a fact but we just need the technology to make it work.

I do doubt that that technology will be available any time soon, especially in a box for $5,000, but if this thing works they will be selling thousands of them.


To "harvest", there must be a potential energy difference to harvest. For example, there is gravity all around us, but to "harvest" gravitational energy, one must have a heavy object elevated somewhere and then cause it to fall. With electricity, there has to be a potential difference in electrical charge. When lightening strikes, it is because the charge on the sky and ground were different. The difference is created by wind, which is caused by a heat potential difference between the sun and earth. (Windmills and solar panels use those sources to store energy.)

The TANSTAAFL truth is that in order to create a potential difference, rather than tap an existing one, a device must inevitably do more work than can be done when the difference is released.

The device described here purports to scrape electrons from the earth, creating potential in storage batteries, and to use that energy to scrape more electrons. It is a closed loop, like the typical perpetual motion machine, except done with electromagnetism rather than dynamics.

It's bunk.

Maybe I should have titled the thread "Insanely Cheap Energy Device..."

Yes, I did.

I also read the patent. It is bunk.
