  • Giuseppe Censorio

    Dear Andrea,
    Congratulations on the first product based on ECat.
    The ECat-SKLed you are launching on the market somehow includes a GETTER inside to improve the vacuum in its core?

    I went to San Luca.
    Gianvico
    (I try to explain this local expression of my town: San Luca is a sanctuary outside the ancient walls of Bologna; it is ubicated at the top of an hill near the town; it is connected at the city with a covered walkway of kilometers. A local tradition tell that if you want thanksgiving God take a walk from the center of the town at the sanctuary and viceversa … belive me, Andrea justify the exercise).

    Dear Andrea.

    I can really relate to your story about opening books.

    Something similar just happened to me whilst writing and reading unrelated posts in ECW. It does from time to time especially with books.

    I wonder now how many people are scanning the 60000 pages of the Treccani wondering just what insight you found 😉

    Anyway it’s fantastic news about the e-cat SKLed. I

    Light! Just imagine how many young studious and curious minds might be using them in the future to find new discoveries and insights wherever they might find them .

    Best Regards to you and your team in these amazing times.

    dear Andrea,

    maybe a test possibility:
    1 solar panel and 4 mirrors put it as a pyramid in front of the panel and with 1 or more ecatSKLeds above the panel, and measure the results DC output, connect a DC converter and measure the AC voltage, and current and calculate the kWh.
    With Regards Jitse

  • Dear Andrea, I am very happy with your progress towards the commercialization of the ECAT SK led. I fully understand that you want to enter the market cautiously with a “low-power luminous device”, but we all know that the watchword will later be “off the grid” for thousands of applications. Make a nice surprise for us in the Easter egg!

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    You really surprised me (and many others) that you will soon reveal details of the Ecat SKLed. You must be quite confident about the results of the certification testing you await in November or perhaps earlier.
    Obviously I can’t wait for getting my name on the order list and I’m quite eager to see this miracle and digest its performance details.
    I hope you will allow me some questions about it on forehand:
    1. Was the Ecat SKL or the Ecat SKLed or both certification tested?
    2. Did you need to miniaturize the Ecat reactor and electronics for the Ecat SKL?
    Thank you if you can answer.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Wilfried Babelotzky:
    The Voltage in Europe is normally rated 220 V with the due tolerances. No problem, it won’t break wherever you plug it in Europe.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Wilfried Babelotzky

    Dear Andrea,

    You said that the SKLed has a connection for 220V. I hope it was a mistake, because the 220V are an outdated value in Europe. Today it is 230V +/- 10%, i.e. a maximum of 253V. Can you confirm that the SKLed can handle this 253V and won’t break?

    Best regards
    Wilfried

    Svein H. Vormedal:
    “Let there be light” is a stetement that spurs me to report what happened to me a week ago: I had a problem, an important problem to resolve, and I was consulting all the possible sources I had ( books, papers, internet, Wikipedia, ) but I consumed tens of hours studying with no avail. At the end I watched the Enciclopedia Treccani ( always at my side when I study ) and searched there consulting all the voices related to what I was searching, but again to no avail; at that point, I thought to pass to some alternative solution, but before giving up I said ” Let me take one volume of the Treccani without choosing it and open it without choosing a page and see what happen “, a thing I never did before in my life, and I did it: as unbelievable as it might seem, I found on that page, under a voice that had nothing to do with my search, the exact solution to my problem. The Treccani has 60 volumes, each of them has about 1000 pages.
    I swear, it really happened, as unbelievable as it might be.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Dear Andrea,
    The news on the E-Cat SKLed is interesting. My compliments.
    As for the need and demand for clean (non-fossil) electricity, apart from lighting, transportation, and heating, and industrial applications such as steel production, one important use today is in data centers.
    Please let me refer to a radio report by BBC on this topic, to which I contributed, covering the establishment of huge data centers by Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and others in Sweden because of the cheap and fossil-free electricity we have in our country.

  • Harold

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for informing us about the demo in November!
    It made me smile and made my day.
    I start following your developments since 2011 and never gave up hope and now 10 years have passed and the first product is really there. I can’t wait to see the photo.
    Out of curiosity when did you realize that you got some enigmatic energy source in your hands that could change the way we look at energy totally?
    Or in other words did you had an Eureka moment at some time?

    Enlighted regards,
    Harold

    I am sure that the Ecat SKLed can be hooked up to the output of a 12v DC – 220v AC car inverter. What will be the power absorbed from the inverter, in watts, by the Ecat SKLed light? This will be ideal for camping adventures and similar activities.

  • Dan Galburt

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    If I put the E-Cat SKLed in an opaque box would the thermal energy dissipated by the box be more than 20X the electrical energy used to operate the box?

    Best Regards
    Dan Galburt

  • Mike Phalen

    Hi Dr. Rossi,

    Your product announcement is very exciting!

    I realize you may not be able to answer this yet. I’m also very interested the possibility of creating a self sustaining closed loop system using the Ecat SKLed, solar panels and a dc to ac converter.

    Question: Are you aware of any reasons why a system similar to the one described below would not work?

    I looked up the efficiencies of LED’s, solar panels and DC to AC converters and came up with some rough numbers. I’m assuming that the COP is at least 100.

    Start with 1 watt input into the Ecat
    100 watts: E-cat Output at COP 100
    40 watts: LED output based on 40% LED efficiency, 100 watts x 40%
    6 watts: Solar panel output based on 15% efficiency. 40 watts from LED x 15% efficiency
    5.7 watts: <——— Remaining power available to self power the E-cat

    Thanks, Mike

  • Iggy Dalrymple

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Congratulations on your great achievement. Starting off with the SKLed is smart and less likely to irritate the establishment. I can’t wait to have an SKLed table lamp equipped with some USB ports.

    Some fitting tributes would be to donate SKLed units to the birth places or burial sites of Nikola Tesla, Sergio Focardi, and Sven Kullander.
    Best Regards,
    Iggy

  • Carlen Young

    Great work! It sounds like you have made a lot of progress and chosen a clear initial product.

    I am curious if you have consulted an expert in psychology and light. While it has become almost common knowledge how blue light effects sleep, there are actually many nuances. How full spectrum light vs partial spectrum light is interpreted by our brain. Or in retail how different colors change the way makeup and cloths look…

    With a devise like this you have the potential to replace a very large segment of the global light source. With mindfulness and intention you could be a part of a solution that naturally helps calm down peoples’ nervous systems, or unintentionally on the pursuit of efficiency even create a small since of anxiety as most fluorescent lights have done.

  • Svein H. Vormedal

    Dear Andrea.
    Let there be light.
    This is å good way to start. It has been tested before!
    The follow up will be wery interesting!

    Our light is white, obviously with filters you can get the colours you need, but from the Ecat SKLed exits white light.
    Cordless may be got using a battery inside the Ecat.

  • Claud

    Dear Andrea, I carefully read the details you released about the SKLed you’re going to market. I think that you will likely succeed for the public and industrial lighting market. For private and household use I believe there is very little chance of success.
    You actually offer a revolutionary lighting solution but something else must be considered:
    – The current lumen/watt ratio for newest led lights is so high that further improvement are not particulary requested;
    – The percentage of expenditure for home lighting rarely exceed 10% of the power bill;
    – The use of artificial lighting varies from 6 to 10 hours per day and, for a single light source, never exceed an average of three hours. Counting on a lifespan of 30 to 60 years is not appealing for a normal user;
    – The real innovation of the SKLed is in the inner core. But a lighting device is mainly choosen for the rapid connectivity to the existing system (bulb socket) or for its design in the case of table or decor lamps.
    I hope you that the technology value of the item itself would launch a fashion that everybody wish to follow, but this is the only case I foresee for a mass demand of the SKLed in the private household sector.
    With my best wishes and warm regards
    Claudio

  • Hi Andrea:

    Wonderful news. Soon the unveiling of the first Rossi Ecat product out of what eventually will likely be hundreds? And which will reduce the cost of energy by an order of magnitude! Perhaps more. Extraordinary.

    But let me just make sure I understand this first product correctly. Am I right in thinking that when plugged into a regular 110V or 220V AC supply, this unit will provide as much light as a regular 100W incandescent bulb while using quantities of power from the mains far less than that of a current LED bulb providing equivalent illumination?

    That is what I think I understand. I just want to be sure I got it right.

    I am smiling from ear to ear right now. We have all been waiting for this for a long time.

    Illuminatory regards,

    Rodney.

    Dr Rossi:
    Very exciting news today! One question.
    Following the photo and presentation of the specs, will there be room for follow up questions regarding coloured LED:s and stage lighting?
    In the stage and theatre lighting field, additive colour mixing is now common practice when LED:s are the source
    (the semiconductors in these fixtures have been treated to reproduce a certain part of the spectrum, then these different parts are mixed using a digital protocol).
    I ask because, needless to say, the introduction of a completely cord-less fixture would make You and your team the patron saints of lighting technicians everywhere.

    Dear Andrea,

    1) To prevent people from wanting to unseal and examine the inner workings of the E-Cat SKLED, will you make a video displaying the inner components and describing them?

    2) Would you consider demonstrating one of these devices shining upon a solar panel and measuring the output of the solar panel and comparing it to the input of the SKLED? With all the losses involved in the conversion of electrical power to light and then light into electricity, if the output is even slightly greater than the input it would prove that there was a huge gain of energy.

    3) Will you have someone preparing an educational video or materials for schools or colleges to be released upon launch? The truth is that although there have been thousands of experiments with self organized plasmas over the last hundred years, there are a number of physicists who know almost nothing about them – much less ordinary students. I think a review of concepts such as double layers, self organized plasmas (also known as fireballs, complex space charge configurations, macro-EVOs), and the basic idea of how you are extracting energy from the plasma would be very helpful.

    4) Are the ion acoustic waves produced by the plasma ball being harnessed in the energy extraction process?

    5) To what extent is the energy extracted from the plasma ball being conditioned (smoothed out, changed in frequency, etc.) before it is sent to the LED panel? Or, are you using the electrical output directly with little to no conditioning?

    6) Does the electrical output have the same or similar waveforms as the ion acoustic waves generated by the plasma?

    7) Have you thought of possibly including a USB port so the device could also power other small loads (a few watts) like a cell phone?

    Thanks!

    Hello DR Rossi

    Will the ECatSKLed have UL
    Certification when it goes on sale.

    Dear Andrea,

    Congratulations on your announcement of the new astounding SKLed lamp products and its announcement of the November SKL presentation!

    You mentioned the order of delivery will respect the list of pre-orders you already have. Are you speaking of those domestic orders we have already requested in the past years or are these an addition to it? I ordered the ECat in hopes of a domestic home electrification rather than an amazing lamp at the time. If from the previous list, will our previous orders be preserved as well for a future power product?
    Thank you for letting your light shine to the world!

    Very respectfully yours,
    Brokeeper

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You wrote “The certification, made by a third independent party, covers and guarantees the Ecat SKLed for any application, even domestic.”

    Does this mean the certification has already been obtained by you?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland
