finalblade, it doesnt provide any power itself so using more than one won't do anything
I did some research and think I may have a theory on how it works. For antennas we match the impedence to that of the air for maximum power transfer by adjusting the inductance and capacitance. We also do the same thing for stereo speakers, ever wonder why they said 8 or 16 ohms on the back?
Well when impdences is not matched there is some power reflection back to the source, this power is wasted. So for maximum power transfer matching impedences is required.
Since an electric motor will have an inductance and capacitance it will have an impedence. This is usually is very low but is still there. If the KO device is a passive device it can be made really cheaply, but isnt as effective as it could be for all motors out there since each individual motor will be different. If it is an active device it is a bit more complicated but probably not that much. Anyways by characterizing the impedence of each motor we could make a device such as this tuned to a particular motor.
This is all just a theory, Im not an electrical engineer (Im a mechanical engineer) so I could be wrong but I wouldn't have posted all this crap if I wasn't pretty sure.
I would love to see the patent information for this. If Im right Ill post instructions how to make and tune such a device for your motor.
