Magravs Power Cell Test Discussion March 19, 2016
A Magravs Power Cell was received from the Keshe Foundation in Italy March 9, 2016 and put into a test situation in an isolated facility with one active circuit energized and a grid supplied meter that recorded the usage by that single 110 volt circuit. The circuit was protected by a 15 amp circuit breaker in a distribution box that was installed just below the grid meter. The distribution box is similar to any that are used in residential settings except that it was limited to two 220 volt circuits and two 110 volt circuits. I strongly recommend that the Magravs Power Cell be connected to a circuit with no more than a 15amp capacity breaker.
A minor problem was encountered soon after hook up but was rectified within 24 hours. The unit has been loaded as directed for the last 10 days. It is still basically a 1:1 input to output wattage device.
The test set up involves the use of the grid based meter and one or more small (1875watt max load) power meters for measuring individual loads that are applied as the directions call for over time. At some point the other circuits coming from this distribution panel may be used for other applications so the small power meters will be the only reliable measure of power in and power out. If that happens there will be periods of several days at a time when there are no other loads than the measured test circuit on the grid meter. So it will always be possible to compare the measured inputs and outputs for the reapplication of a specified load with the sets of inputs and outputs that have been recorded in the past.
This unit was shipped from a factory that was set up to supply a European market. The manual does not apply to US conditions and the plugs supplied must be adapted to fit US plugs and receptacles. The unit was not UL Certified. It is suggested that if such a unit is received by any buyer that they have it and all connections checked out by a qualified electrician. Hopefully the units sold within the USA will have a UL Certification, cords and plugs, and directions that are appropriate for the power supply system here.
We look forward to watching the development of the claimed capabilities for this unit and the receipt of a UL Certified unit when local manufacture comes on line. The unit we have is suitable for the testing that we are doing now and if it functions as claimed it may be moved into a residential setting when the test is complete.
