    Totally valid concept -- but the "20 times" claim is totally fabricated. Even the company states that they've measured 5X. Even that is hard to believe unless the concentrators are doing more work than seems optically possible.

    Cells that are not heating are also not producing and to even believe the 5X claim means that they are exceeding 100% efficiency.

    So --- I'll let other others invest in this one for awhile until they get more rigorous with their press releases and claims..
