OK - I'll bite.  100% is always a bold statement to make about most 
anything, including energy transfer...  :)

Are you talking about transferring energy from coil #1 to coil #2?  Or 
are you speaking of storing (and subsequently extracting) energy from a 
single coil? 

I am not an expert on transmission line theory or even general e-mag 
principles.  Any clarification on your use of "100%" would be
