jake stockton: Coming from a mechanic, these are gimmicks. End of story. Move along
everyone. There's nothing more to see here.
Daimon Hill: To all the people saying "Not Possible" ... you realise that for around $50
you can get a 40,000 RPM brushless (90% efficiency) RC helicopter motor
that is approx 1.2Kw and puts out around 2NM torque, and is 36mm x 65mm in
size (Turnigy XK series)
Sure, it draws 80A max, and sure an ESC (Electronic Speed Controller) will
run you another $100, and would probably only make 3 or so PSI... but thats
with a FEW minutes of looking... you can get some REALLY impressive
brushless DC motors if you know where to look
너 자신 치유: if you get a turbo charger or a super charger why go through all the
trouble modifying it and slapping on an electric motor when u can just use
the it in the car? lol
Fajar Wahyu: Instead of " I feel" or "I think"..it is better if you prove it by the
number, say, from the dyno test..from both of you, the fan of real
compressed turbo, and the fan of electric turbo device..
ProRockJK: Ok this freaker down here keeps saying my electric turbo makes boost blah
blah blah blah
My English sucks so what but I least I'm not dumb like you that thinks that
lil pice of crap will make boost or power to the engine
Just saying you get more air driving in the freeway to your engine than
that crap just saying
TheDudeAr: Why WOULDN'T an electric supercharger work? The only difference between
electric vs mechanically driven is just that. There will be a parasitic
loss of driving the generator off the crank to create the power to drive
the electric supercharger, but this is NO different than a mechanical
superchargers belt coupled to the crank pullet. An electric driven
supercharger will have slightly less efficiency due to having to convert
the energy to electric and again back to mechanical at the supercharger,
losses will be in the form of heat. Someone slap one on already to shut
these internet know it alls up.

Alexander B.: I don't understand why people on here are saying that turberchargers don't
work. Do they even understand how COMPRESSED MAF works? It's been proven
already. There's math that goes along with it to explain it.
Frank Furter: WHY is it that you think you'd need all of those batteries if the
alternators are pumping out gobs of power in the numbers that you cited?
How long do you think anyone would need to run the alternators to run the
equivalent HP in an AC motor like you cited from Baldor? Constantly? What
are the RPM of that electric motor? It's probably like around 1,725 or so,
and that is why it needs to be such a honkin' beast to make 30 HP. And
it's most likely a 440/460V 3 phase AC motor too. Do you know what the
differences are between AC motors and DC motors? Stop and think here for a
minute or two, PLEASE!
Deep cycle batteries are able to take a bit more abuse than standard
automotive ones, but they're not the end of all creation. How far down do
you think you'd be drawing down a battery of any type for a sporadic use
such as this anyway? Batteries store electrons in the acid electrolyte,
that's why the specific gravity changes when the battery is charged up and
is discharged. Distilled water is used in batteries to keep the
concentration of the H2SO4 at the correct percentage rather than tap water
because the dissolved minerals will cause problems.
But in all of this, I never once said anything to advocate using an
electric motor to run a super charger, did I? Maybe it can be done with a
permanent magnet starter motor that has been modified for short bursts of
power, but NOT for continuous duty as you seem to think would be the
tuscolian: To create a device like this, you need to understand the engineering of
physics and aerodynamics. Using a turbocharger compressor gets you part way
there as they have a pressure map. The turbo is an air compressor and an
engine is an air pump. To develop pressure between them, you need to
produce more air volume than the engine requires normally.You would need to
spin the shaft at increasing speed with an increased RPM of the engine. I
takes a lot of HP to produce that much volume and pressure. I'm skeptical
of how economical an electric motor big enough to make that much HP would
be, not to mention a high power motor controller.
Roger Colinayo: i think electric supercharger / turbocharger are good for eliminating the
turbo lag. If we can use twin turbo one electric turbo and 1 conventional
turbo during low rpm engine, electric turbo can help create pressure
instantaneously then at a certain speed the conventional turbo will fill in
as the engine back pressure is increasing.
stujb: Assuming this does do as you say, what about all the other important
factors? If you force more air into the engine, then you need to increase
fuel into the chamber. If you increase fuel you will also need to adjust
the point of spark. You can't just increase air flow and gain power. You
need to adjust everything.
Joshua Naranjo: F1 cars use something similar but it's complicated cross between a turbo,
electric pulled, and a generator with a management system...supposedly
incredible gas mileage,torque and power. Of course tons more involvement on
the engineering side of things
Stefan Cvetanovic: hello ! i have one question . i saw electric superchargers on ebay ,and i
was wondering ,can i install this kind of supercharger on my kymco agility
50 ccm scooter? :D
Tim Spriggs: what about this? ...
Eric Nutter: I want to know how long a battery can sustain the current required to spin
that motor at the 20,000 to 30,000 rpm required to get boost.
Honesty Counts: For a true electric supercharger to work it has to have a LOT OF POWER, at
least 20 to 40 hp motor attached to it, and a motor like that is as large
as the typical car battery, so you will need a lot of room in the engine
bay just for that alone and that's usually not possible. For that much
power you are going to need a wire to the motor that is as thick as the
wire that connects to your battery terminals, at least 1/4" diameter
copper. That much power draw will stall your car because all of the
battery power will be sucked right to the turbo unit, so you will need a
separate battery system just to power the turbo itself. What happens then
is that the electric turbo is off most of the time under normal conditions
and the air enters the engine through the 'normal' non-turbo air intake. At
this time the car's electrical system slowly re-charges the turbo's
separate battery. Then when you need a sudden boost of power, you hit a
switch on the steering and the turbo battery disconnects from the car's
main electrical supply, and the turbo sucks power from the separate turbo
battery only, the extra boost of air enters the regular air intake from a
separate side pipe, and this extra pressure then closes a flapper valve on
the air intake to prevent boost air from exiting out the air intake. The
boost air then enters the engine at much higher pressures than normal. This
boost can be maintained for only as long as the separate boost battery can
supply power, which is not that long. As soon as the electric turbo starts
to die down, the boost pressure falls down, the intake flapper valve then
opens up and air enters the engine using the normal air intake route, not
from the turbo. This system can work wonders but it is very complicated,
very large, and very heavy, and is very seldom used because of those
factors. A much simpler and much smaller idea is to just use NOS instead
(Nitrous Oxide), it gives the same results as the above '2-intake' electric
supercharger system and won't need a huge amount of space under the engine
for the entire setup.
Tom Tangle: Im tryna figure out the mechanical electrical relationship... Does the
power created from the car battery spin the impellar to specific speeds
depending on rpm ?
ThatGUY1027: An electric supercharger could work if you had a powerful enough electric
motor. I can tell you right now, that little brushless motor will not be
strong enough... It might spin it up to your desired rpm but as soon as it
is loaded from boost it will not keep up. I worked for a ProCharger dealer
and have extencive experience with both installation, designing of mounts
and drive systems. I have personally seen the larger blowers
bend/break/flex thick billet mounts and break large cogged belts! For an
extreme example the F2 ProCharger with an impeller speed of 61,264 RPM
making 32.9 Psi of boost has a parasitic HP loss of 353.6 HP!!!!!!!!
here is a quick article on some ProCharger testing
Peter Gotham: electric super chargers do not work
Caleb Anderson: I wanna buy one where can i get one
metralha761: Hi, thanks for that explanation in the video!
I'm trying to find asynchronous supercharger project, well at least is what
I call it. Why call that? the concept is between the conventional turbo
charger and an electric super charger, with what I have in my mind, I think
it's possible to have high pressure with electric super charger.
epcenter5hz: This Guy sounds like "Just Blaze"
Andres Perez: 1) So this electric supercharger can compress air and produce boost because
the motor can spin at high RPM?
2) How much torque does the electric motor have at these RPM?
3) How much back-pressure can it take before having any kind of compressor
4) How is the impeller speed controlled for different RPMs and boost
5) Did you adjust the OEM compressor map for the air resistance vs electric
no bad words hash: thanks a lot
Loretta Bain: What's for dinner dude?
2bidfilmsguy: wouldn't it just be a better idea to run an electric motor up to a
centrifugal supercharger? instead of having the pulley run by a belt off
the engine it could just be mated to a motor, and that way hypothetically
you could make peak boost almost instantly rather than at red line which
would be a drawback of the same supercharger being run off an engine belt
Fred Perez: where is an actual video of a real test on a car in a dyno
janoah365: man build me one..lol
Tyler Looney: how did you make that real supercharger into an electric supercharger i
would love to know, because im in the process of building up my 98 chevy
metro into a custom turbo gasser but i dont have alot of money to do much.
so i would love to know how to make and install your custom prototype
electric supercharger. please make a video in the near future on how to
construct and install the prototype. thank you
NeverEnough: Hey Bro, your link to the build is dead. I'd like to see your plans.
Jr Ram: Where can I buy one
Jacob Regamey: any updates? what motor is ideal? what rpm for how much pressure etc
Anthony Gillian: the turbo makes boost because it spins at 100,000X a minute, while your
electric fan is just wasting electricity
hotpapayasalad: according to ohms law it doesn't work. you're taking power to make power
and what's worst you're taking power from the electric system from your
vehicle which it need the most. your lights will dim, your spark plug will
not fire to its full potential which results lost in horsepower and poor
gas mileage. its like adding a stereo system in your car with out any
modification done. any INDUCTIVE LOAD such as elector motor will pull mass
amount of juice. you'll over work your alternator!!!
Rob Sewell: Where can I get one will it work on a 98 maxima
skeggjold gunnr: Of course a real compressor impeller creates boost! Why ask "does it work"?
What, you're hung up on the *source* of drive power? WHY? Electricity can
be controlled more easily and have none of the drawbacks of exhaust gasses
or a crankshaft / belt drive. Electric motors can provide WAY more RPM's
(with belt / pulley) and WAY more torque than you could ever use...and do
it more efficiently. This IS the answer for the smart. Great job on a great
ProRockJK: This crap don't make no boost!!!!
Put it in a Dino bro.
jayden hewer: Electric superchargers are a great idea if pushed into production for
people like me who wants to increase there performance without getting down
and dirty with manifolds and drive belt systems. people like me would be
happy with 3-4 psi of boost, if you want 18 psi get a turbocharger. Do you
foresee electric turbos being available to the consumer any time soon? Is
a system the is natural aspirated when the supercharger is off a
possibility? This would be excellent for a capacitor system.
Danny Hoadley: Jesus Christ there are so many electrical and mechanical engineers out
there who can't seem to agree on the conservation of energy. The creator of
electric superchargers/turbos must know how to bend the laws of physics. My
mind is blown.
casey james: the outlet in the motor?Nope later
Daniel Allison: how can I get one of those electric superchargers? looks more legit than
those ebay ones cant find them on your site
Dave theWorker: nice man good explanation of how a turbo works and these ebay guys are
MIKE J: you got any dyno videos
PP van dorst: lets sie some dyno testing
Ciber: What if you buy one of those electric ones and connect a little weed eater
2 stroke engine to the fan to make it turn faster? That would create some
HomasterX: the 2nd prototype looks promising
Ronald Holley: Ok I'm looking at a electric supercharger that's 60 amps and 837 watts I
think and 1psi I can give u the name if u need it just email me and I'll
give u more info and says it can give me a 5 to 10 percent more hp what do
Dragonstud: awesome explanation, I'd like to add one of your turbos to my 2
stroke....how much are they?
Kuba Fly: Where can i buy your shizzz!!!
Blue Rebublic: The scam is basically just a fan powered cold air intake. There is no
benefit to having one unless you want to be able to tell your friends that
you have a supercharger in your car, but the truth is you only paid $20 USD
for it. You might as well have a leaf blower as an intake.
