The fact that nobody at Ecowatts can really explain how their “thermal energy cell” manages to create 150 to 200% more energy than it uses, thus violating the laws of physics, is not very encouraging. The 12x2 inch tube is designed to plug into standard household electrical outlets in order to heat water for the home's needs.

"The system - developed by scientists at a firm called Ecowatts in a nondescript laboratory on an industrial estate at Lancing, West Sussex - involves passing an electrical current through a mixture of water, potassium carbonate (otherwise known as potash) and a secret liquid catalyst, based on chrome," the Mail said.

It would be great for everybody if these guys are right but, this reminds me of the trend I posted about the Irish perpetual motion machine back in July.
