Are these fuel cells?
No, they are exactly the opposite! Fuel cells make electricity from oxygen. The DryCell makes oxyhydrogen from water and electricity.
The DVD won't work on my player!
This is a dual layer NTSC format DVD. If you experience problems, try watching the film on a computer. We recommend the free open source software player from videolan.org.
Where can I get the password for the customer area?
Customers who obtain the DIY manual automatically get a password to the customer area.
I want to become a member of your organisation!
We are no association. There is no membership. We are a free group of friends trying to help the planet before we leave.
The electrolysis is an inefficient loop way! Why not heat electrically?
This is what Michael Faraday said 200 years ago. Today we have much more efficient materials and equipment, even from the local hardware store. And as we know today, the energy from the oxyhydrogen is already stored within the water. So the electrolysis is just a stimulus for fission, and this is no closed energy circle at all. We explain this in the printed DIY manual.
Where can I find such DIY workshops in my area?
The DryCell is Open Source, so anyone can join in, replicate and develop free of charge. So we usually do not know who is offering workshops. Yet we think the best workshop is on our DVD that comes with the printed DIY manual. At least, this is by far the cheapest workshop! ;-)
Why do you call this a 'DryCell'?
The unit is traditionally called a 'DryCell' to distinguish it from Michael Faraday’s 'WetCell' from the 1830's. Of course the DryCell also uses water for the electrolysis, but only very little. It is much more efficient.
What is the 'WetCell'?
An older variant from Faraday's times. Peter shows one in the beginning of the film, and the Audi car owner uses one in his car. Basically it is just a jam jar with a spiralled coil inside. It is dangerous and highly ineffective. Peter explains more in the film.
Can I use the DryCell in my car to save fuel?
Of course it is possible to power internal combustion engines with oxyhydrogen, but that depends on your car's engine. And you have to check if this is legal to do in your country. We explain this a lot more detailed in the printed DIY manual.
Can I use the DryCell for heating?
Yes, and we even explain a lot of fascinating heating experiments in the printed DIY manual.
What else can I do with oxyhydrogen gas?
You can flamelessly heat with our DIY sand heater, use it for welding, melting (even tungsten melts within seconds!), boiling water (the flame even burns underwater), use it as a lime light, to
power combustion engines, or even remove radioactivity, and lots of other fascinating experiments. We explain ALL of these experiments and a lot more in the printed DIY manual. You will definitely love this.
I want to store this gas.
Don't work against nature. Hydrogen (H2) has the smallest and lightest atoms of all. It instantly ascends and dissolves through every material, it even goes through walls and roofs right into the atmosphere. This makes storage totally useless. So we never store it! We simply make it on demand.
Aren’t there patents?
The DryCell is a free invention, free of patents (they are long expired). It is even "Open Source". So anyone can join in, replicate and develop free of charge. No more secrecy. No more hiding! The invention is additionally protected by an international safeguard organisation.
What’s the efficiency of the DryCell?
A decent DryCell draws about 130-160Wh to make 1 litre of oxyhydrogen gas per minute. This is about 390-480Wh for 3l/min., or approx. 650-800Wh for 5l/min. Values may vary depending on actual setup and other factors. Skilled hobbyists can absolutely undercut these values. These are very good results already. But we don’t really think about efficiency at all. We do this for self-sufficiency and a better planet. And we love to do experiments. More about this in the printed DIY manual.
Are there scientifically approved measurements?
We are in contact with established Universities and have even documented this on film (German language). But do not expect them to work at the speed of free market economy. We know they could have refuted us with ease if we were all wrong. Fact is: We have a working device here. We are just waiting for their explanation of what is really going on here. To all doubters: Build and measure for yourself! You wouldn’t believe us anyway, right?
You can't power cars with this, or heat efficiently. Never!
Why not? Of course we can. First, there is no closed energy cycle, so there is no violation of the energy conservation law. Second, electrolysis has definitely developed since Michael Faraday
1830. And we have far better materials, even from the local hardware store. Third, water is full of energy. That's why we drink it. All the energy from the oxyhydrogen is already stored within
the water. Thus the electrolysis is just a stimulus for fission. Ignoring water as an energy source would be like ignoring the fuel in a car, and then claiming the car would run on battery.
Why don’t you just bring this invention to the market?
Is this a fake or are you just totally incompetent?
Good question, indeed. A lot of people ask this. First, we are free spirits. We think that consumption makes us stupid. Knowledge, however, makes us free and self-sufficient. Second, we involuntarily learned this: As soon as you try changing society significantly, someone in charge will definitely stop you. Period. While universities and mainstream media try to ignore people like us, a local power company already sent costly warning interventions from their lawyers, ignoring that this is all Open Source here. And since we started, we have been stalked, phone tapped and repeatedly descended, much like in the movies. What a fuss about a tiny Open Source invention! Sounds crazy? It really is. Other developers meanwhile have even been bought out, threatened or silenced. We mention some of them in our printed DIY manual, along with their inventions, and what happened to them. Now you know why we do not bring anything to the market. We’d rather remain small but free.
Why didn’t we hear from you in the news?
Short question, long answer. See above. We explain this a lot more detailed in the printed DIY manual.
What are the DIY material costs?
You need approx. 250-400 USD for the DryCell, depending on make and size. A sturdy switching power supply starts from approx. 250 USD. Instead you can simply use lead batteries of any standalone photovoltaic system for powering the DryCell. And of course you will need some common tools to assemble.
Where to obtain all the parts for DIY assembling?
Right from your local hardware store. Some parts you might also find in computer stores or wholesale markets. Improvise. This is no bible and nature is not standardized. In case of trouble, team up with neighbours, work colleagues and friends. This will reduce costs and is much more fun, too. We explain more in the printed DIY manual.
Where can I find others?
Look for like minded people among partners, friends, neighbours and work colleagues. It’s about time for synergy and cooperation. And of course there are a lot of web forums. But we do not have contacts there, we do not even watch these forums and we do not care what is going on there. See Links.
How to power the DryCell?
You can use a car battery, a stand-alone photovoltaics system, a switching power supply (for power grid use), a toroidal transformer, or whatever you find is appropriate. Improvise! Luckily
nature is not standardized :-)
How much Volts/Amperes does the DryCell need?
AMPERE: Our DryCells draw 3-5A only for most applications (welding, underwater flame, flameless sand heater, limelight,...). In the first minutes during a power up, a cold DryCell can easily draw up to 15-30A, if you just let her.
VOLTAGE: Our DryCells use 1.7V-2.4V per chamber, depending on the operating temperature. One always builds a DryCell to match the existing power supply and intended usage. We explain this in the printed DIY manual.
But this gas is explosive!
Yes, this is exactly why we use it. And we are absolutely careful in what we do. We work in small scale, we just produce on demand, we do not store any gas, we use 2 different flashback devices
and a high quality pressure gauge to stay safe.
Yes, this is a technical experiment with chemicals, electrical energy and fire. These are real energies we are working with. But we are all grown up and responsible. Team up with friends,
neighbours and work colleagues! This is much more fun and will save you a lot of money, too.
I have no technical experience!
Decide for yourself if this is something for you. Remember, this is not intended for the average customer who demands off-the-shelf solutions. We show you technical experiments which are still undergoing development. They can still contain errors and are therefore intended for adults only. You will need technical skills, patience and enthusiasm. Team up with colleagues, friends and neighbours, this is more fun and makes it easier. Consult an authorized specialist if you are uncertain with any aspect of the DIY manual, the film or any other situation related.
The DryCell is Open Source, so why does this DIY manual cost real money?
Relax, you don't have to pay anyone anything! The knowledge is Open Source, we even supply all the links you need here. Indeed, the printed manual and the DVD were hard work for all of us. By obtaining a copy you help us continue our development. We think
this is fair.
They say on the web that this is just a hoax.
There are people who would rather believe in theory than reality. Some might even be paid debunkers. They want to irritate and confuse. The question is, who pays debunkers to run down Open Source? Lots of people sent us tons of great photos and videos from their replications from all over the world! They all work! :-)
