Victor Hugo was quoted as saying “One cannot resist an idea who’s time has come.” This is the case with Nikola Telsa. You cannot deny that as an inventor he was early, even though his time came and passed his lack of business skill and the ability to be financially savvy hurt him in the end. We all know some of the main things that Tesla was known for, what he created that changed the world forever.

Tesla Had 112 Known Patents – Possibly More

Tesla, the visionary inventor of our time was granted 112 registered U.S patents for his work! Some other countries also have records that he filed but it’s hard to know for sure what they are without confirmation from Tesla himself or someone who knows more about this topic than I do.

It is believed that Nikola Tesla held somewhere in the order of 196 patents for his tech, across 26 countries worldwide. Of these grants from other nations and regions around our globe–the largest number appears to have been filed Great Britain with thirty-one granted there as well!

Tesla also held about 10 patents in France, 27 in Belgium, 21 German – 19 Italian and 15 Austrian. He appears to have filed the occasional patent elsewhere including Spain (1), Brazil(2) & Austria.(3)

The list goes on and on, but what most people don’t know was that there were a list of inventions under the surface that Tesla had created that were game changing that were either lost, stolen (by Ediston or others) or censored entirely out of fear for loss of entire industries such as the energy industry.
