it would be easy with a COP of 50 propose a convincing blackbox test. On input side, put a battery of limited power/energy, then add a power supply (inverter, step-up converted... ask Maxim) of fair efficiency, and on the other warm simple thing, like boiling tea, melting ice.
it is not convincing with 30% XH, but for 50000% XH, even a donkey can show it works. 2017-11-26 21:26 GMT+01:00 Jed Rothwell <jedrothw...@gmail.com>: > Adrian Ashfield <a.ashfi...@verizon.net> wrote: > > >> The measurements of energy out & in were good enough to demonstrate the >> basic characteristics of the QX. >> > > The measurements were bogus.
