Energy Shot Review

Product Review of an Energy Drink

According to source, the idea of energy shots started decades ago in Japan, where small “tonics” became very popular among consumers who were served highly concentrated carbonation drinks.

With the introduction of energy drinks as of the late 1980s, the efficacy of these energy shots started to travel the world as a new product format.  In 2003, the founder of 5-Hour Energy discovered an energy drink at a natural products trade show and formulated a similar product reducing the content from 16 to 2 ounces but keeping the energizing effects.  Finance credits them with largely creating the energy shot market.  By 2008, there were over 25 brands offering energy shots in the US alone. In 2009, a major energy drink producer Red Bull  launched an energy shot.

By 2011, energy shots became so popular that 5-Hour Energy Image result for energy shot

sold $1 billion of their product at retail.

Although originally marketed in the US, energy shots are also becoming popular in other parts of the world such as Europe, Asia and Australia. The products were targeted at customers who seek high efficacy with little liquid intake and included truck drivers and students. One word of caution, “Dilute the shot” for best results.

The product under endorsement was Red Rain Energy . The frat parties they  sponsor, as seen under their web page photo gallery, were promotional.

The small bottle product in question contained caffeine, choline and taurine. TAURINE was an amino acid and a building block of protein. CHOLINE was necessary in the structure of cell membranes, protected livers from accumulating fat and as the precursor molecule for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, etc. CAFFEINE, as the only addictive was a naturally occurring alkaloid, found in common coffee and tea.

I found the product available over the counter. The product was inexpensive. The product was not a steroid. The product was loaded with B vitamins. I personally used this product when attention to detail and awareness was necessary; around machines, on the job as a night guard and in study.

The can contained 250 ml. and the small bottle was 60 ml.

Zero Point Energy

Zero Point Energy Module

A Fuel Cell is composed of common elements.  The Planetary Encyclopedia Wikipedia said there were 23 types of fuel cells all directed at power.

A lot of people are still in the dark because of the weather.  A back up alternative and/or remote portable generator power source was one alternative to the Dark Side but there’s another alternative with Research & Development.

Common Fuel and Oxidizing Agents exists in alkaline and electric storage types; mainly Hydrogen and Oxygen.  How about other common sources like Natural Gas and Chlorine or any of the other halogens?!?

What the Scientists Said

Sir Oliver Lodge (1851-1940) the radio pioneer, said further, " . . . the amount of atomic energy stored in one ounce of chlorine could keep a transatlantic steamer going full speed for a week !! The explosion of a few pounds of material could be enough to shatter a continent !!  Radium, a most concentrated source of energy, was found to break up atoms from x-ray use.  The ATOM breaks up of its own accord over thousands of years, shooting off the fragments at speeds which make a rifle bullet a snail in comparison.  A radium is like a two-ton gun firing a 100 pound shot, recoiling similar to uranium which fires off 4 such projectiles in order to become radium.  The alpha particle of helium is fired off at the speed of 10,000 miles a second, producing heat.  The beta particle was found to be an electron, the fundamental unit of electricity and seen to repel each other.  An atom is a miniature solar system; the sun being the central positive nucleus and the revolving system like planets.  Electrons travel at the speed of light- 186,000 miles a second. 

(Popular Science 1920's)

The speed of light converted to metric was 300,000 kilometers per second as the ultimate speed limit; until you add energy to make it go even faster.  One percent of the speed of light was 2,200 km/sec. which would get it around the Earth in 18 seconds.

Too Much Energy, You Say !!

Zero-point energy or ground state energy was the lowest possible energy that a quantum mechanical system could have.  Unlike in classical mechanics, quantum systems constantly fluctuated in their lowest energy state; due to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.  As well as atoms and molecules, the empty space of the vacuum has these unique properties.  According to Quantum Field Theory, the universe can be thought of not as isolated particles but with continuous fluctuating fields: matter fields, whose quanta are fermions and force fields, whose quanta are bosons.  All these fields have zero-point energy.  These fluctuating zero-point fields lead to a kind of reintroduction of an aether in physics, since some systems can detect the existence of this energy.  However this aether is not referred to as a physical medium, if it is to be the Lorentz invariant; such that there is no contradiction with Einstein‘s theory of special relativity.

Information Particle Physics puts aside all these great scientists of the past and tests another theory in Quantum.

Used by NASA and the military,  the government research created an open public domain on fuel cell research showing them to be faster to refuel, more energy efficient and pollution free.

A fuel cell is an electrochemical cell that converts the chemical energy from a fuel into electricity through an electrochemical reaction of hydrogen-containing fuel with oxygen or another oxidizing agent. Fuel cells can produce electricity continuously for as long as fuel and oxygen ( or another oxidizing agent ) are supplied.

Scheme of a proton-conducting fuel cell -Wikipedia

Earlier Comparison
    • Newton’s third law of motion says, to every action there is an equal and contrary reaction or the two actions are equal and contrary reaction.
    • In a rocket, the small mass and great velocity of the discharged explosive mixture of hydrogen and oxygen are equal to the larger mass and smaller velocity of the rocket.
    • We can create breathable air by driving stale air through limewater and heating potassium chlorate to liberate oxygen from the chemical combination.
What’s Going On Here?
Fuel is fed into the cell and broken into positive hydrogen atoms and negative electrons useful for energy.   The hydrogen atom weighs nearly 2000 times as much as the negative charged electron leaving the difference in the proton;  meaning it has the same charge as the electron but is smaller. One can refer to the electromagnetic theory of mass.  When air is mixed with the fuel, in this case hydrogen, the atoms are reformed into water.  In summary, the proton-conducting fuel cell uses the most abundant element in the universe hydrogen; on Earth it comprises about 13% before purification.  Hydrogen blends with the second most commonest element on Earth – Oxygen.  The only pollutant is pure water, clean and useful.  A Circle Logic in the making.

In science fiction, ancient earth technology said a submerged covered island with aerospace capabilities should welcome the hybrid technology of a modified fuel cell; if only as a secondary source of perpetual energy.

2017-10-26 The first interstellar object named A/2017U1 just shot through our solar system on its way to the Pegasus System; moving very fast.  Might be an Asguard starship on a rescue mission!!
A/2017 U1 is most likely of interstellar origin.
This animation shows the path of A/2017 U1, which is an asteroid — or perhaps a comet — as it passed through our inner solar system in September and October 2017.  From analysis of its motion, scientists calculate that it probably originated from outside of our solar system.

Hydrogen Fusion . . .

The examiner drew a symbolic electronic circuit.  Somewhere in the circuit, instead of drawing the component that is supposed to be there, he drew a Little Black Box.  Then he defined the wave-form, voltage, and amperage entering the circuit and defined whatever was coming out.  The million dollar question:  What was in the Little Black Box?

Except in the simplest of cases, there was never an absolute answer.  The question was counted as correct if the student puts into the Little Black Box a component or sub-circuit which produced the effect desired.  The value of the answer depended on the simplicity and relative controllability of the component drawn in the place of the Little Black Box.  From the top of the Black Suitcase projected two one-inch copper electrodes, fourteen inches apart.  In the mysterious black suitcase was a small pressure tank of hydrogen inside—one of the little ones that are sometimes used to fill toy balloons. There was a small batch of electronic circuitry that looked as though it might be the insides of an FM-AM radio.  All of the rest of the space was taken up by batteries and every single one of the cells was a familiar little canister.  They were small, rechargeable nickel-cadmium or lithium-cobalt cells.  Is it some kind of hydrogen fuel cell?  Does it get its power by converting hydrogen to helium?

Batteries were needed to start the thing.  After it got going, those leads there from the reactor cell kept the batteries charged.  One of the technicians began flipping other switches, and a bank of ordinary incandescent light bulbs came on, four at a time.  Finally there were one hundred of them burning, each one a hundred-watt bulb that glowed brightly but did not appear to be contributing much to the general brightness of the desert sun.  The technicians checked their recording voltmeters and ammeters and reported that, sure enough, some ten kilowatts of power at a little less than one hundred fifteen volts D.C. was coming from the Black Suitcase.

Battery-making is an art, not a science.  You don’t just stick a couple of electrodes into a solution of electrolyte and consider that your work is done.  With the same two metals and the same electrolyte, you could make batteries that would run the gamut from terrible to excellent.  Some of ’em, maybe, wouldn’t hold a charge more than an hour, while others would have a shelf-life, fully charged, of as much as a year.  Batteries don’t work according to theory.  If they did, potassium chlorate would be a better depolarizer than manganese dioxide, instead of the other way around.  What you get out of a voltaic cell depends on the composition and strength of the electrolyte, the kind of depolarizer used, the shape of the electrodes, the kind of surface they have, their arrangement and spacing, and a hundred other little things too numerous to mention.
