A Joe Cell's Unit Charge

"I determined that as a Joe cell is being charged in its normal charge cycle, and while low level electrolysis is taking place; the cell develops a voltage that has never before been addressed. I refer to this voltage as unit charge. Unit charge can be in the hundreds or even thousands of volts."

by James Goss
for Pure Energy Systems News

Joe cells and the mystifying claims about them have become a fascinating subject. I have been working with cells for quite a while and for the last five years have been experimenting with Joe cells. Although some of the alleged claims about Joe cells have yet to be demonstrated, I recently discovered something that might be of interest. To my knowledge, this information is new to all Joe cell experimenters. I have recently posted basic information about this discovery on Joe cell group one (a | b | c) and two

The cell in the photo is a typical Joe cell. There is nothing special about the cell itself, what is special is in the technique for measuring its unit charge. The cap terminal above the cell is a voltage multiplier. It increases a cell's unit charge by approximately 500 percent.

I determined that as a Joe cell is being charged in its normal charge cycle, and while low level electrolysis is taking place, the cell develops a voltage that has never before been addressed. I refer to this voltage as unit charge. Unit charge can be in the hundreds or even thousands of volts. Both the cell and low voltage power supply charging it must be well insulated from an earth ground reference. Any ground reference at all will prevent the charge from developing. Since the AC line always has an earth ground reference, either by the equipment ground conductor or by the grounded neutral conductor, batteries must be used for the charging supply. I normally use two 12 volt batteries in series for a 24 volt source.

There are several reasons why unit charge has been overlooked. One is the requirement for not having earth ground reference. As an example: Placing the cell and its charging supply on a rubber mat atop a wooden table is not good enough; unit charge will not develop. What does work is placing both the cell and its charging batteries on four inches of high density styrofoam atop a plastic nonconductive table. This allows unit charge to progressively increase with time and not bleed off to earth ground. 

Another reason unit charge has been overlooked is this: Unit charge can not be measured with a standard digital or analog voltmeter. The electric field around a charged cell collapses as soon as a meter probe touches the cell. Likewise touching the cell cylinders or cell water by hand also neutralizes the charge. Other surrounding static electric fields, including a person's own body charge, which can be thousands of volts depending on type of clothing and humidity, will also influence unit charge. The electric field produced by unit charge can easily be measured up to 20 feet from the cell.

One final reason for being overlooked: Like most other static charges, unit charge has an extremely low value ampacity rating. This makes its electric field very susceptible to collapsing when touched by hand or being in close proximity to other fields. However, the charge produces an electric field which can induce charge into other nearby metal objects without collapsing its field. 

I use a surface DC voltmeter to measure this charge. The meter is held near the cell and does not actually touch the cell. Since the charge is a single point static charge, it is measured in respect to earth ground. It can also be measured with an oscilloscope when properly setup, but this method collapses the field each time a measurement is made. [Editor Sean McGuinness notes: Totally a side note here, but this reminds me of a similar effect found in quantum physics, where simply observing changes the way quantum particles act. Here’s a 5-min. video that clearly details the effect posted on YouTube: The Double-Slit Experiment] The cell must then recharge before another voltage test can be made. 

Although current of less than one amp will produce unit charge, larger current values produces a greater amount of voltage at a faster rate. It appears to be the thousands of tiny bursting bubbles loaded with hydrogen which create the charge; without bubbles, no charge is developed. This is only my first impression, but I believe vapor created above the water's surface, which is basically water leaving the cell, is charged opposite to the cell water left behind. With a positive unit charge on the cell, the vapor is negative. This technique seems to be how a cell charges water. The cell separates positive and negative ions within the water by having the negative ions leave the cell water by way of vapor, while positively-charged ions remain in the water. 

Vapor leaving the cell water can transfer charge to other ungrounded metal objects near the cell. However, a greater charge value can be transferred from a cell to other metal objects if direct contact to the cell is made. As an example: If a cell has any of its cylinders or cell water connected to a metal object by a jumper wire; the object will become charged as the cell charges. If the cell charges to 1,000 volts the object will also measure 1,000 volts. 

Unit charge has no influence on the low voltage charging source, and does not influence current flowing through the cell at all. However, unit charge does have a cooling effect on a cell when it reaches higher voltage values. 

Unit charge is a single point charge, unlike the two-point charge used for charging the cell. Charge is propagated throughout the cell as well as throughout the charging batteries. All components within the cell and batteries receive the same value charge. Unit charge creates no potential difference between any of the cell cylinders. It seems that unit charge is always a positive polarity, at least in the cells I am using. 

I discovered unit charge in a cell, as well as its cooling effect, while experimenting with applying a single point high voltage charge to a cell being charged with 24 volts. I had the cell well insulated from earth ground at the time and had applied 8,000 volts DC to the anode. I was thinking bubble activity might be altered by an intense electric field. I placed a surface voltmeter near the water's surface to check voltage and felt an extreme cold coming from the surface. From there I determined a cell having unit charge applied will operate cooler even with a higher current flowing. I then found that the cell itself can develop unit charge if it is set up properly.

Typical unit charge value is between 300 and 3,000 volts, but I have seen it higher when conditions are ideal. Charge time varies and seems to depend on bubble activity. 

Another thing that is interesting is this: The faster the vapor is removed from the surface of the water, the faster unit charge develops. As an example: With the vapor lingering around the water's surface, it might take 15 minutes to reach 500 volts. With vapor being blown away by a small fan, unit charge reaches 500 volts much sooner.

At this time, I do not know one way or the other whether unit charge influences the overall operation of a Joe cell, but it does exist. Unit charge seems to be a natural occurrence within a Joe cell, and in some way might be connected to the mystifying claims that have been reported.

About James Goss

James is an industrial electrical and electronics professor for 33 years. Retired 10 years. Hobby: High voltage experiments.



The following comments were received after asking some associates about running the above story:

Jim Schmidt, who is in charge of Inventors/Inventions Screening for the New Energy Systems Trust, writes:

This falls under what I would call basic research related to ether energy Physics. This guy is very intuitive and a great researcher. Hope he documents his work for future publication.

This indeed may explain some of the mystical properties of a Joe Cell. The other thing he does not mention is the fact that the individual may also have to be charged (have at least a positive attitude) before things will work similar to Keeley's sphere.

We nee all we can get to understand the nature of "Free Energy"

James Goss is a great contributor of good, solid research on the Joe cell. 
Every time he posts, I learn something. 
I think this latest, "unit charge" is worthy of a section on the Joe cell pages at PESN.

Subject: [NEC-TechRev] Unit charge in a Joe cell (James Goss) - cooling effects, water voltages

Hi James and Moshe,
Last month I uploaded into my website my new compilation of "130 Electrical Energy Innovations". In the chapter on Moshe Daniel's Moe-Joe orgone energy cell I reported:
"In spring 2008 a Moe-Joe orgone energy cell (sometimes simply referred as the “ball”), operating as an orgone energy accumulator, was installed in a 1993 Saturn. Orgone energy was transferred from the cell through a section of dishwasher tube into the engine via its PCV valve intake. The Saturn’s mileage, carefully measured on an old largely unused and flat highway southwest of Las Vegas along I-15, using the same gas pump in a Chevron station next to a casino a few miles north of Primm, jumped from 30 MPG to 47 MPG. Smog checks before and after connection of the ball to the battery measured a 90% reduction of exhaust pollutants."
So I personally have observed some positive results.
Reading over James Goss's report, I noticed that he has observed a peculiar cooling effect. I did a Find of "130 Electrical Energy Innovations" for both "cool" and "cold" to see if I had described other devices with strange cooling effects.
One device is Ken Hawkings' generator of cold electricity although I don't really think that has any relation to Joe cell cooling effects.
This paragraph caught my attention: 
"Moray’s 30-kilogram radiant energy device produced 4 kilowatts of cold electricity which was able to power light bulbs. However, electric motors require special winding to increase their efficiency. While commercially available electric motors will operate on the power from a radiant energy device, they are not as efficient as motors running on ordinary commercial currents. Moray says when his motors are running in the dark they glow with a violet aura. His motors ran cold!"
Here's another pertinent invention:
High-Voltage Injection of Rain Water into Cold Fog
Many prototype systems exist today which efficiently convert potential energy into useful work. An example of such a system is the "Cold Fog" discovery of Dr. Peter Graneau of Northwestern University . Dr. Graneau's system converts chemical bond energy into kinetic energy by injecting rain water with a high voltage discharge of 39.8 joules. Normal rain water subjected to this treatment becomes a cold fog which loses approximately 31.2 joules of low-grade heat and a comparable amount (29.2 joules) in the form of kinetic fog energy output. As reported in the prestigious Journal of Plasma Physics the output energy exceeds the input energy by about 100%, creating a 2:1 over-unity condition. The energy output produced by this system can be captured and harnessed to drive a motorized conversion system.
Stanley Meyer reported:
Meyer has demonstrated his fuel cell device before Professor Michael Laughton, Dean of Engineering at Mary College, London, Admiral Sir Anthony Griffin, a former controller of the British Navy, and Dr Keith Hindley, a UK research chemist. According to these witnesses, the most startling aspect of the Meyer cell was that it remained cold, even after hours of gas production as his system appeared to operate on mere milli-amperes, rather than the amperes that conventional electrolysis would require. The witnesses also stated:
"After hours of discussion between ourselves, we concluded that Stan Meyer did appear to have discovered an entirely new method for splitting water which showed few of the characteristics of classical electrolysis. Confirmation that his devices actually do work come from his collection of granted US patents on various parts of the WFC system. Since they were granted under Section 101 by the US Patent Office, the hardware involved in the patents has been examined experimentally by US Patent Office experts and their seconded experts and all the claims have been established."
Kiev's IPMS has discovered:
Research and development in the deposition and culture of layered crystal lattices has produced an entirely new class of materials, previously unknown to Western science. These are referred to in recently submitted patent application documents as “Thermal Electric Cooling Devices”. Because of the nature and function of a specially designed combination of crystal layered “hosts” and their intercalated “guest” materials, these specially designed capacitors actually absorb energy when subjected to a flow of electrical current, producing a specific cooling effect on the material surfaces. All other known materials produce heat when subjected to the same conditions. Temperatures of 60 degrees Kelvin (-259 degrees Fahrenheit) have been produced under controlled, carefully documented laboratory conditions. This is cold enough to liquefy free-standing nitrogen gas from the atmosphere.
Then we have:
"The solid-state Cool Chips™ thermo-ionic refrigerator,, represents a new development for cooling, refrigeration, and thermal management. One of the first industrial applications of nanotechnology, Cool Chips use thermionic technology to deliver up to a projected 55% of the maximum (Carnot) theoretical efficiency for heat pumps. Conventional refrigerators operate at up to 45% efficiency and current thermoelectric systems (Peltier effect) operate at 5-8% efficiency.
Cool Chips use electrons to carry heat from one side of a vacuum diode to the other. The system contains no moving parts or motors. It can be miniaturized for use in localized microelectronic applications, including cooling microprocessors to enable faster computers. In almost every electronics cooling application, an active cooling system powered by Cool Chips technology will be superior to the more conventional passive solutions."
I am copying David Yurth as he may know of other devices producing anomalous cooling effects. I am also copying Pat Bailey who runs my website and also the Institute of New Energy's website
It seems that the more strange is a device, the more likely it will produce odd cooling effects. I have a suspicion that the Searl effect generator produces cooling effects although my report doesn't show any indication.
When a Moe-Joe cell was installed in a 1968 Dodge Charger, I reported:
"Another weird phenomenon: Sometimes the Charger’s engine was emitting a strange whitish “fog” out of the oil intake tube, exhaust, air filter, and other orifices. Putting one’s hand into the “fog”, it doesn’t feel at all like the hot steam that boils out of a hot uncapped radiator."
When I charge water with which to fill a Moe-Joe cell, I zap it with DC voltages with a home-made apparatus:
"Gary Vesperman has an electronic contraption for specially charging and filtering the water with which to fill a Moe-Joe orgone energy cell. Electrically charging bottled spring water results in brown scum floating on top of the water which has to be filtered several times before a clear liquid similar in color to urine is obtained. It currently takes a couple of hours to charge and filter enough water to fill a one-quart bottle. He is willing to make and sell one-quart bottles of special water for $50 each. Hopefully production efficiencies can be improved such as experimenting with charging and filtering distilled water rather than bottled spring water."
Glen Rein has pioneered some research into rather strange properties of water such as memory. When John Martens and I were experimenting with our two Moe-Joe orgone energy cells five years ago, we got an uneasy feeling that the two balls could read our thoughts although I unfortunately can no longer remember any specific instances other than the time we were out for a test drive with his 1968 Dodge Charger. The engine simply stopped on a major street at an unusually convenient location.  I can't remember what went wrong with the engine. It seems that the balls had positive intentions with us.
We had a genuinely exhilerating experience with the two balls. I think James DeMeo has reported similar psychological results with orgone energy accumulators. Except that long ago I made an orgone energy blanket according to the instructions in his book "Orgone Energy Accumulator Handbook". I discovered the hard way that my body got tired from too much constant exposure to the blanket. So I had to store it in the garage rather than in my bedroom.

Hi Gary,
Nothing I could see to bar such open discussion.  His points appear similar to the findings of both Reich and Burr where DC millivoltmeters are used to map out variations in the orgone energy charge (Burr called it the electrodynamic field).  We get the same from ordinary orgone accumulators, developing a weak voltage all their own.  A related measure is the delayed electroscopic discharge rate inside the accumulator, which has been confirmed repeatedly.
I'm still hoping they get it right and make the Joe Cell work, but haven't seen a demo of a working model as yet.  Have you?
