You're quite wrong, and you appear to be suffering from severe credulousness. I kindly recommend picking up a grade school physics text, and starting from there.

Good luck!

When is the last time you plugged in your electric wheelchair to charge it?

This was proof to me, that we have discovered a way of gaining free energy
Seems like everyone is attacking your idea from a technical standpoint and talking about the battery. I have a quick set of simple questions that you should be able to answer directly.

How much does the chair weigh?
Are you sitting in the chair when it's going up the hill?
Are you sitting in the chair (or adding additional weight) when you roll it back down?

I ask those questions because you seem to think that you could add many many generators to the chair to get an additional charge. I would think that if you added too many generators the chair simply wouldn't roll back down the hill without some additional force to help it move. And if that's the case, then you need to account for that force.

Simply sending the chair up empty while you push the accelerator and then sitting in it to bring it back down the hill in maximum gear would completely null your findings.

You are of course correct, but if the OP can walk up the hill with the electric wheelchair it would make me wonder why he even has one. Of course his notion that simply using different gear ratios uphill and downhill can result in a net energy gain is nonsense.

Of course if your suggestion that OP is walking up and riding down is correct, the true source of energy is his muscles. Somehow I doubt that people walking uphill repeatedly is going to meet the world's energy needs.

There's a ton of cheap labor to be had in Asia. Patent pending.

You are using the change in size of pulleys

This is significant with electricity
As more rotations usually equals more power with electric motors/generators

I gave a collection of my answers to others earlier

we need to get this info out to the Tribulation Saints
I have a working free energy device in my house
it is my electric wheelchair, or any electric wheelchair
that has the drive gear settings changed
to max torque,(1st gear)
+ max speed,(10th gear)

Why doesn't god give a real gift, like curing all children suffering from cancer instead of letting somebody go up and down a hill in an electric wheelchair?

Or giving the wheelchair-bound person the capacity to walk.

Is this gibberish supposed to be relevant to your unproven claims about your magic energy machine? Your "Tribulation Saints" are another figment of your delusion.

How disappointing!
I expected yolasite to be an exotic substance like Cavorite, with properties that defy the laws of physics.
