    This concept “product” is a scam and a fraud. The amount of energy that can be recovered from a typical sleeping adults breath would take several years to charge an iPhone.

    Do the match … the energy that can be recovered is less than 2 calories per hour … the time that would take to charge a 3w-Hr battery is over a year.
