I’m pretty sure all the products at the “quantum magnetics store” are expensive scams. The lack of references to peer-reviewed science papers, or even sensible explanations, of how they work, is a fairly sure sign of a hoax. Here are a couple of threads reaching the same conclusion: “Quanta Magnetics: The "Blackbox" free energ”

There’s a whole ecosystem of businesses of various sizes that sells expensive devices and kits for perpetual motion machines, using a variety of tricks to avoid the legal consequences of outright fraud, from simply being impossible for civil or criminal courts to find, to selling their wares to “experimenters” implying that there’s no guarantee they actually do the physically impossible things their advertisement suggest the do. IMO, it’s an ugly business that promotes and preys on the naivety and lack of sound science education of its customers/victims.That said,
there are a real physical phenomena that suggest that it might be possible to get energy from what, in classical physics, is nothing: the Casimir effect
. In short, one explanation of this effect, which has been uncontroversially been show to really exist, is that is when the when its 2 uncharged conductive plates are placed the required few nanometers apart, more or fewer of the many virtual particle that quantum physics predict appear and disappear constantly and usually undetectably even in a perfect classical vacuum appear between the plates than outside them, resulting in a tiny but measurable mechanical force on the plates.
Although in all Casimir effect-detecting experiement, the mechanical work done setting up the plates is much larger than that resulting from the effect, in principle, it could be made smaller, resulting in a tiny “something from nothing” energy output.
Various inventors have tried to invent schemes where not is the “setup” work to produce the Casimir effect made smaller than the effect’s, but the effect is scaled up to a non-tiny magnitude. One of the more promising (though not necessarily very promising), but as yet unsuccessful approaches, assumes that the light produced by sonoluminescence, where vibrations of a fluid produce tiny, light-producing bubbles, is due not to the usall explanation of brief high temperatures, but by the Casimir effect, so it might be possible to get more energy from the light than is used to produce the vibrations that cause it. While a fringe theory, IMHO it’s not incredible – this self-published paper
by engineer Thomas Valone
is one of a few suggesting this possibility.
