    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Tip: Have a flashlight with rechargeable 18650 batteries. This would make it portable with a very long autonomy.
    Each 18650 has 3.7V; three of them in series develop 11.1 V.
    Furthermore, if it could also have the strobe function, it could serve as a self-defense or be used by the police to thwart the turmoil in the crowd. The remarkable brightness with the strobe function would temporarily blind others and prevent them from doing damage.

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

    Dear Andrea.
    The market today offers “millions” of LED lamps that provide 10,000 lumens.
    These cost twice the price you operate with.
    The power requirement for these is 100Watt. E-Cat SKLed requires 1/25 part of this. With a deduction for the power that goes to charge your own battery, the net power will be 96 watts.
    By combining 21 SK 12 volt units, you get 240 volts and probably an output power of 20 x 100Watt = 2kW. Such devices can be combined in a desired number.
    With a price of 21 times the SKLed price, the market will be at least 100 million such units a year, for the next 50 years.
    Creating your own battery factory will significantly increase your sales volume. Put your effective LED light on this opportunity!
    Best Regards,
    Svein H. Vormedal

    Dear Andrea,

    the fact that the SKLed can be powered with 12V DC, gave me an idea: could it be shaped like a standard H4 headlight? The potential market would be enormous.

    Dear Andrea,

    This comment posted by Neri is well thought out and I totally agree with him. It is faster to sell your quantity needed with a generator than with “lamps”. I want you to succeed too. Neri proposes what I had hoped you would propose. I would be happier placing a $2000 order than a $50 order.

    —————
    I remain of the opinion that by proposing a small electric generator of 3-5 Kw “all purpose” self-powered with a buffer battery even at the cost of one or two thousand dollars, you would reach the target of one million bookings very quickly and all of humanity would be really grateful. Then, as you have repeatedly said and shown that energy is not produced by any nuclear fusion, but by new electronic properties of plasma, make it clear once and for all, even on your site, that yours is a plasma generator and call it as it is, like(plasmagen, plasmaenergy plasmalamp, or whatever you want). Avoiding talking about “nuclear” certainly paves the way for certifications and “mental” opposition by many.
    Excuse this frank intrusion, but you know how much I care to see your invention globally recognized.
    Neri

    Hello Mr Rossi,

    now that the SKLed can be powered with a 12V battery, you should make the device being able to be fully unplugged from the cord, because then the SKLed it is the perfectly usable as a flashlight.

    Best regards,

    Chris

  • Donald G Chandler

    Dear Mr Rossi

    Good to hear that the latest Ecat SKLed can be powered from 12VDC.
    1. What is the current consumption in this configuration?
    2. I’d expect about 325mA (12V x 0.325 = 3.9W) but are there losses that make it significantly more?

    Kind regards
    Donald Chandler

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    A mind experiment…

    Envision an eCat-SKLed lamp with a 50% reflecting surface (a beamsplitter).. The eCat-SKLed lamp outputs about 10,000 Lumens. 50% of the produced light goes to the exterior and the remainder is focused on a photovoltaic solar cell. The solar cell is likely 15 – 20% efficient. DC electrical energy is produced, smoothed by a battery or a large capacitor. The DC output is fed to an inverter with a conversion efficiency to AC voltage of above 90%. The AC power drives the input to the eCat-SKLed lamp. Recall about 3 – 4 Watts of electrical power is required to operate the eCat-SKLed lamp.

    Is there any technical reason this would not work?

  • Iggy Dalrymple

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    I think that to sell 1,000,000 SKLed you would need to hire professional industrial salesmen that specialize in selling to municipal, state, and federal governments, and to businesses with large parking lots and/or large buildings. Alternatively you could delegate such sales to a “middleman” that caters to that market.
    Best Regards,
    Iggy

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Excellent news, that the ECAT SKLed can also be powered with a 12 V battery.
    So I imagine that what will be sent to us will also have this characteristic.

    Kind Regards,

    Italo R.

  • Dear Andrea
    As soon as the description of the ECAT SKled appeared on your site, I informed the thirty interested colleagues and friends, that for more than 10 years I have periodically did, about the progress of your discovery, but I must tell you that this time I received more negative than positive comments or even zero comments! Most are wondering why to book a lamp that is much more expensive than others, although 10 times more efficient? and many doubts that it is possible to reach one million bookings by the year. Although I have explained that this lamp is just an attempt to cautiously introduce your overwhelming technology to avoid exposing yourself suddenly to strong contrasts, the negative responses remain. I think it would be useful for you to check the number of bookings you have obtained in three months; this could give you good information on the market you plan to reach and give you the possibility of changing the strategy. As some other reader said, your lamp has an indefinite design, it is not a home lamp (you do not put a 10K lumen 5000 kelvin lamp on your bedside table or living room!) And it is not an industrial or street lighting lamp, this limits its interest only for those who want to open it to explore its contents or, worse, to try to copy it. Of course, now the possibility of a battery operation greatly increases its potential and if it could then be maintained in charge with excess energy in addition to the luminous one … ok a solar panel can do the job but…..!
    I remain of the opinion that by proposing a small electric generator of 3-5 Kw “all purpose” self-powered with a buffer battery even at the cost of one or two thousand dollars, you would reach the target of one million bookings very quickly and all of humanity would be really grateful.

  • Dan Galburt

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    One more suggestion.

    Make certain that if a battery is accidentally connected to the E-Cat SKLed with reverse polarity that nothing bad happens.

    The best solution is no current is drawn.
    Is this a problem?

    Dan Galburt (second answer of today):
    Our team worked today on your suggestion: all the the Ecat SKLed will be able to be powered either with their plug connected to the grid at 110-240 V, 50-60 Hz, OR with any 12 V battery, and it will be the undisputed lamp with the longest autonomy of the world, at parity of battery Ah.
    You gave us a great idea. We got it. The DC connection will poke out from the rear face of the Ecat’s body.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The possibility of adding a 12V DC input to SKLed is really excellent news.
    It would allow SKLed to be added to all existing 12 V LED installations as well as
    in many non-grid solar-powered and mobile applications.
    I really look forward to when you can confirm this very positive extension of SKLed specification.

    Kind regards

    Dr Rossi,
    Congratulations for the replication made by US Navy of your patent. I have been impressed by comparing the claim 3 of the patent application of the US Navy with the claim 1 of your patent.
    Allow me to put these questions:
    a. did you collaborate with the US Navy laboratories during their experiments ?
    b. have their experiments been done in your laboratories ?
    c. have they informed you that they were going to replicate the Rossi effect ?
    Again congratulations,
    Jorge

  • Dan Galburt

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    In one of your responses you indicate the E-Cat SKLed could be made to run on a battery.

    I hope you’re considering this option and if you are, I suggest that the input voltage spec be 12 +/- 3 VDC which would cover automotive batteries and readily available Li ion battery packs. Based upon your input power consumption of 3.9 watts I would expect the nominal current drain from the battery to be 3.9 watts/12 volts = .325 amps.

    I hope you’re not considering integrating a battery directly into the E-Cat SKLed. Give the customer the option to select the size and type of battery he wants to use including automotive batteries, or a grid fed adapter.

    A peak current drain needs to be specified, but you have given no information that would allow me to estimate it.

    I believe there is good reason to believe that there may be more interest in the E-Cat SKLed as a light weight battery powered light source then as a grid fed unit.
    For example a 12V, 3 amp-hr Lithium ion Battery Pack sold through Amazon for $24 would be able to run the E-Cat SKLed for more than 6 hours. The combined weight of both the E-Cat SKLed and the Li ion battery pack would be 380 grams.

    Question 1
    Are you considering doing a survey to establish the market for battery powered E-Cat SKLed relative to grid fed units?

    Question 2
    Is making a E-Cat SKLed that runs on 12 VDC more difficult than making a unit that runs on 120/240 VAC?

    Question 3
    Until a significant number of E-Cat SKLed units are sold and tested by users, some doubt will remain about its performance. Key specifications associated with grid fed units are luminous flux, input power, and life. Luminous flux is difficult to test beyond visually comparing the E-Cat SKLed with a similar LED source. Most customers will not even have access to a suitable watt meter to measure input power. Life takes time to verify and has to be taken on faith in the near term.
    Key specifications for a battery powered unit are luminous flux, weight and battery life. These specifications are all testable in the near term and no watt-hr meter is needed.

    E-Cat battery powered SKLed applications such as portable and emergency lighting require no investment in mounting and wiring and therefore have minimal risk if they don’t work as expected.

    Do you agree that from a sales point of view that offering an option for connecting a 12 VDC battery power source to the E-Cat SKLed has merit?

    Question 4
    Would you consider running a battery life test on an E-Cat SKLed connected to a commercially available battery?

    Best Regards,
    Dan Galburt

  • Dear Andrea,
    What happens if you do not reach 1×10^6 orders by the date you gave for the presentation? Will you extend the date, offer a lower price, or offer a different device for sale? Will you still hold the presentation? Ignore these questions if they have already been answered and I have just missed your replies.
    Marketing regards.

    Why do you need to sell one million units before starting the deliveries ?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Lisa Catlover:
    Good point.
    Among the forms of payment we will accept, there will be also Paypal. I suggest that the payment is made through Paypal, because they guarentee the refund if the merchandise is not delivered.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I know you are the CEO ( Chief Executive Officer ) of Leonardo Corporation.
    I ordered an Ecat SKLed and sending the order form I found here:
    http://www.leonardocorporation.com
    In the order form it is written that the deliveries will begin only after you will reach one million of orders and that if such amount of orders will not be reached the orders will be void. There is also written that the payment will be made only at the delivery and that before that moment no money will change hands.
    All this is clear and good.
    I have a question, though: if one has to pay before the delivery, what happens if he will not receive the Ecat SKLed ?
    Thank you if you can answer,
    Lisa Catlover

    Dear Andrea,

    I’m currently working on a case study on using the SKLed to illuminate streets. According to my calculation in the case study, the replacement of street lamps with the SKLed pays for itself in 3 – 6 months, while the saving of electricity and the saving of CO 2 emissions play a role.
    The CO 2 levy in Germany is € 25 and in Switzerland and Sweden around € 100 per tonne of CO 2.

    Of course, this calculation only applies when replacing lamps with conventional bulbs that consume a lot.
    Since the replacement for LED is already in full swing, the amortization time increases.

    Traffic-dependent control and dimming based on time and brightness are used in street lighting today. The control is carried out via the Internet. There are various standardized connection elements for lamps on the power poles.

    Solar panels with batteries are available for newly installed lamps to which the lamps are connected directly.

    I have questions about this:

    1.) Can the dimmer in the SKLed be controlled via the Internet?

    2.) Can the SKLed also have a DC connection so that it can be connected directly to the battery?

    The street lamp distributors offer various connection elements for masts.

    It would be beneficial if Leonardo could use a lamp connector as standard for the SKLed, or even better if Leonardo included a connector.

    This would make it easier for Leonardo to win over the specialist companies for the lamp market to sell the SKLed.

    Especially when it is calculated how much electricity and CO 2 emissions can be saved by your customers compared to lighting with conventional LEDs.

    Warm regards
    Ulrich

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I think you decided to start with lamps because they will be a troy horse for wider applications, am I correct ?
