Lifters are devices capable of lifting their own weight. They are a ?modern version? of the Townsend Brown electrokinetic apparatus. The lifters are using the Biefeld-Brown effect to levitate. A basic lifter cell is composed of three Townsend Brown asymmetrical capacitors joined so as to form a triangle assembly. There has been much debate about the cause of the phenomenon.
