Where can I buy a thorium plasma battery or plans to build one?

Bolt · · 2 years ago

I have been holding off on buying an EV because of the scarcity of charging stations. But then I heard about these 10 year plasma batteries that need no recharge!

Where can I buy a plasma battery or the plans to build one? I am damn tired of pumping , money into my gasoholic car. If I can get one of these batteries that never run out of electricity, I will donate my Escalade to any charity and gladly by a Prius, Volt, or a Tesla Roadster. So where can I get one?

I saw the video of the Korean guy who drove his electric scooter around for two years without ever recharging his plasma battery, but nobody mentioned who makes them or how much they cost. I also saw that Cadillac has a Thorium concept car but that beauty may not see a production line for ten more years. All I can find on the net about the plasma battery is these two articles:

Well my friend, you can forget about buying them from the inventors. They seem to all have suddenly died or vanished into thin air! See this disturbing link >

There appears to be something very foul going on here. According to this link however you may be able to buy one from the U.S. Navy or swipe one from a satellite>

This story is a like the red-pill/blue pill scene in The Matrix!

AFAIK Thorium batteries won't fit in your car. And you can forget about building one. You'd never get the funding together, and good luck getting ahold of the proper materials.

Why wouldn't they fit in a car if one was already made for an electric scooter and all the articles say they are "scalable"? I disagree with your assumption. sorry.

No, nearly all the ingredients for a thorium/polonium battery pack can be purchased legally in the US. If you find the right design and figure out a way to safely manufacture them, let us know though.

i came up with the idea to creat a self sustaining plasma battery so i started doing research they are liable and extremly useful but the stigma that comes with actually creation one is too great so i have decided to drop it at least for now and they are very scaleable a russian used one the size of a shoebox to power his home for over a year but he disappeared after the govt got curious about how he was no longer on the power grid his sister had a "car accident" when she started to raise awareness so i would leave it alone if i were you

and AFIAK guy is prolly with the us govt he is trying too hard to be misleading

There is a radioactive fallout with the thorium based energy producing process which though less than with uranium nevertheless exists. I am guessing it is contained in the battery designs but lets be realistic, it still poses a danger.
Having said that, if there is a sure and certifiable way to safely use such a battery I too would look, and am looking, to get or make one. Otherwise forget it. I'll keep digging around and try to get back to you guys here.

From the articles I've read the radiation is equivalent to cell phone radiation.

I can't find any articles on this that explain how this thing is supposed to take a fissile reaction and produce electric.

On power station scale the heat from fusion (both traditional Uranium and Thorium types) are used to heat water to drive turbines which in turn induce current by passing magnets through or past coiled wire.

What is the mechanism supposed to be in this Thorium Plasma battery?
