    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    the holiday season is approaching. Customer companies have employees. And these employees want to go on vacation.

    Therefore, the 2 logical questions for You are:

    1) Can employees of the customer companies go on holiday during July because there will be no large deliveries of E-Cats in July?

    2) Can employees of the customer companies go on holiday during August because there will be no large deliveries of E-Cats in August?

    Have A Nice Day

    Dear Mr. Rossi,
    for germany i would suggest https://www.youtube.com/c/AndreasSchmitz18650/about
    Some of his videos reach up to 1 million viewers or more.
    He is an engineer (informatics&machine construction with doctor’s degree) who never accepts money of producers of products he tests and he does not merchandise his videos.
    Of course, I do not know if he will consent to do it, but i reckon he will because your product is too interesting to deny.

    Dear Steven Nicholas Karels,

    In the E-Cat model I have in my head, particles have to “jump” to release the zero point energy.
    If we take a closer look at the concept of “jumping” and compare it to our own real world where we would have to make a jump ourselves, it makes a big difference whether we jump from on top of a hard table or from a pile of mattresses. .
    In the first case of the table – similar to the stabilized DC power supply – we are much better able to push ourselves off the hard surface, while if we want to jump off a pile of mattresses, we are primarily pushing the mattresses so that we don’t build up our momentum and prevent us from getting high on our jump.
    A battery is a chemical device that is electrically “compressible” or elastic for elementary particles to bounce off it. Placing capacitors in parallel with the battery does not solve the problem of the battery’s “elasticity”.
    I think a solid diode in series with the battery can make a big difference to create a sturdier base for a jump.

    This may all sound strange and unscientific, but I think the concept is understandable.

    Kind regards,
    Koen

    Dear Doctor Rossi

    You just replied to WaltC that you are not reluctant to set up a web stream that shows a Sklep running 24/7.

    1) are you going to do it soon?

    Do not hesitate, do it as soon as possible, you will reach the million pre-orders in no time.

  • Jitse

    Dear bloggers,

    I tested a 36volt dc battery charger for open voltage characteristics, the results are: Open position 40.7 volts DC
    and 90/0 volts AC on the AC position of the meter.

    For the measurement I used a slow simple voltmeter. To measure precisely for analysis, an oscilloscope is much better to determine the effects of the start-up of the EcatSKLep (battery or inverter).

    Perhaps the short voltage peak of 90 DC (1/50 second) is needed to guarantee startup the EcatSKLep.
    A combination of inverter and battery probably won’t work because the voltage has already leveled out.

    With regards Jitse

  • Dear Andrea,
    >I am not reluctant.
    Maybe reluctance has something to do with the problem.
    Namely magnetic reluctance, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetic_reluctance

  • Michael

    Dear Mr. Rossi and Mr WaltC,

    who will watch a cam 24/7? However it will be mainly people who know already the existence of the ecat sklep.
    But new potential buyers should be found.
    There is no way around to invite well-known youtube influencers with at least 100,000 number of clicks for every of their video.
    Please reconsider, Mr. Rossi!

  • WaltC

    Dr. Rossi,

    You’ve been reluctant to have a minimalist SKLep set up somewhere within your lab and operating, for the world to watch, on a 24/7 webcam. Many of your readers believe– myself included– that such a setup would reinforce the long-term operational capabilities of the device and therefore increase the rate of large-buyer preorders.

    Questions: If it’s true that you’re reluctant, is it because:
    1) The current rate of preorders is optimal right now and you see no need to increase them?
    2) You don’t believe it would be worth your team’s time to set something like that up?
    3) You don’t believe that such a setup would attract significant interest?
    4) The buyers that you’re looking for already know full well about the SKLep & its capabilities?
    5) You have concerns that such a setup would prematurely give competitors too much information?
    6) Something else?

    Thanks & best wishes,
    WaltC

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    From other postings, it appears the SKLep work well when powered by power supplies and not as well when powered by a battery. Some questions:
    1. Do you observe correct SKLep performance when powered from a switching power supply (frequency in the vicinity of 100 kHz)?
    2. Do you observe correct SKLep performance when powered by a linear power supply (harmonics in the 120 Hz regime)?
    3. Batteries can provide high output current, whereas power supplies output current is limited by the effective series resistance – do you think this is an issue?

    The paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    has reached 1000 recommendations mostly made by Physicists, Scientists, Engineers, mainly Professors, PhD: I think this fact has the value of a solid peer reviewing.

  • Wilfried Babelotzky

    Dear Chris Beall,

    the difference between a 12 V battery and a 12 V power supply is that the 12 V power supply is voltage stabilised. With a battery, the voltage fluctuates depending on the load. With a 12 V power supply unit, the voltage is regulated and therefore stable at 12 V.
    With lead-acid batteries the effect is not so strong, with lithium-ion batteries the effect is very strong.
    It could be that the ECAT temporarily requires a high input current, which cannot be supplied by a battery with stable voltage.
    One solution could be to bridge the battery with a large electrolytic capacitor.

    Best Regards
    Wilfried

    Dear Andrea,

    You have said that when the Ecat SKLep operates in Self sustain mode, the input is 0.0 W – this would make the COP infinite.

    a) If the SKLep is operating NOT in SMM, what is the typical power consumption?
    b) In your opinion, would it be useful to operate the SKLep with battery input, even if it is not SSM?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  • Ruedi

    Dear Mr. Rossi,
    you wrote an ecat sklep has to be on the grid, it don’t work with just a battery.

    But more and more the second reserve (Sekundenreserve in german, i hope it is the correct translation, maybe also primary regulation or secondary reserve?) are delivered by batteries to the grid. What is the difference to small batteries? This has to be found out.

    Buongiorno Andrea
    sto installando un impianto fotovoltaico, inverter ibrido 5kw, batterie litio, ma senza pannelli fotovoltaici, perchè al loro posto metterei i 20 moduli Ecat-skl che ho ordinato in serie sull’ingresso MPPT dell’inverter ibrido.
    se collego un alimentatore 230V CA/12VCC all’uscita 230V dell’inverter e con questo alimento gli Ecat con i 12 Vcc che escono dall’alimentatore, pensi che possa funzionare?
    Grazie e i miei migliori Auguri per il vostro lavoro.

    Good morning Andrea
    I am installing a photovoltaic system, 5kw hybrid inverter, lithium batteries, but without photovoltaic panels, because in their place I would put the 20 Ecat-skl modules that I ordered in series on the MPPT input of the hybrid inverter.
    if I connect a 230V AC / 12VDC power supply to the 230V output of the inverter and with this food the Ecat with the 12 Vcc coming out of the power supply, do you think it can work?
    Thanks and my best wishes for your work.

    Mr. Varotto Claudio. I understand you, but you have to read between the lines when you persevere for 10 years on this site. Yes, the time is ripe, but it must be used commercially. Detailed questions are insignificant, they will come up later. It is important that Mr. Rossi completes his work to a successful conclusion. This is more difficult than the invention itself.
    All the best J.Å .

    I’ve been reading the discussion of SSM, particularly the part about input power requirements, with much interest, especially the difficulty in getting clarity on the requirement, so I’ll take a stab at it.

    If I understand correctly, there exists an important difference between 12V DC obtained from a battery, and 12v DC obtained from a device that converts mains power (120vac in the US) into 12v DC. It is this unidentified important difference that precludes the use of a battery to power an SKlep in SSM. Is that correct?

    About all the other considerations of yours: I already explained that we cannot give consulting without knowing the specific situations, and we cannot study specific situations if not referring to specific deliveries on course.
    Besides, you expressed opinions that I respect, as I respect all the opinions about our work and I do not have time to make discussions completely useless until we will be ready to deliver. I could add that I deem offensive toward our Team some expressions of yours, but still you are free to express the opinions you want about our tests. As you see I have published integrally your comment, so everybody will be free to think what he wants about it. This means to have respect of your opinions, independently from what I think about them. I always read with attention all the comments we receive and my answers are always thought carefully about, contingent with the time I can dedicate to this important task.

    Egregio Dottor Rossi, seguo i resoconti della Sua sperimentazione, i suoi test, e le risposte alle numerose mail che molte persone Le inviano con estrema attenzione. Non sono un esperto di fisica nucleare anche se tali argomenti mi interessano da molto tempo ma conosco molto bene l’elettronica teorica e sperimentale e devo confessare che sono molto deluso nel constatare che Lei a fronte di, a dire il vero poche mail che sollevano problematiche intelligenti si limita a rispondere con un laconico “grazie per il suggerimento”, sprecando poi il suo tempo nella risposta a chi Le chiede per esempio se il suo dispositivo risulti operativo anche sotto la pioggia o cose di questo genere. Inoltre a chi La invita ad esporsi con coraggio Lei risponde sempre con la stessa litania che si protrae anche da tempi in cui non si paventava a livello mondiale un disastro incipiente.
    Dottor Rossi: credo di interpretare la “esasperazione” di chi ha avuto la “disavventura” di imbattersi in Lei molti anni fa e credere nella sincerità di intenti e nella autenticità delle affermazioni di una persona che sicuramente ha avuto una esistenza da ricercatore oltre che personale molto difficile e tormentata ma ribadisco, come in una mia precedente mail a cui Lei non diede riscontro, affermando l’obbligo verso se stesso e verso tutti
    quelli che hanno creduto in Lei e tuttora credono, di uscire allo scoperto e, smettendola con i test di sapore ” casalingo ” che, devo dire lasciano interdetto anche chi di elettronica se ne intende pochino, segua il consiglio di chi la prega essere più convincente a tutto vantaggio di questa sua ostinata resistenza al raggiungimento di questo famigerato pre ordinativo di un milione di unità.
    Creda finalmente a chi La sta incitando ad esporsi e mi creda, il sostegno a suo favore sarà colossale; Lei lo deve anche in virtù del gran lavoro, a detta sua, svolto dal suo team, visti gli elogi che molto spesso rivolge loro in occasione dei ringraziamenti che arrivano dai suoi sostenitori. Quale migliore modo per concretizzare questo ringraziamento di una dirompente dichiarazione al mondo!!!
    Ora dopo la accorata preghiera,……. Le chiedo: nel 2018 ho inviato tramite lo specifico sito della Leonardo Corporation la richiesta per n. 2 Ecat Home e tra il 2021 ed il 2022 la richiesta in più tranches di n. 20 Ecat Skleps; queste mie richieste come saranno trattate ad inizio spedizioni:
    1) saranno evase singolarmente con la priorità determinata dalla data dello specifico invio della richiesta tramite form
    2) saranno cumulate con la priorità derivante dalla data del primo inoltro del 2018 ( 10/02/2018 )
    Cordialissimi saluti Dott Rossi, La stimo moltissimo e La prego: non risponda con un “grazie per il suggerimento” o esprimendo simpatia per ciò che affermo perchè risulterebbe oltremodo offensivo per chi la segue da oltre 10 lunghi anni di attesa; vale per me e per tutte le persone che Le hanno rivolto le stesse esortazioni. I tempi sono maturi per agire.
    Grazie.
    p.s. Le invio la mail che in italiano a causa del mio scadente inglese che non consentirebbe di cogliere appieno il senso delle mie affermazioni.

    Dear Doctor Rossi, I follow the reports of your experimentation, your tests, and the responses to the numerous emails that many people send you with extreme attention. I am not an expert in nuclear physics even if these topics have interested me for a long time.I know theoretical and experimental electronics very well and I must confess that I am very disappointed to find that you are faced with, to tell the truth, a few emails that raise issues intelligent simply respond with a laconic “thank you for the suggestion”, then wasting your time in replying to those who ask you, for example, if your device is operational even in the rain or something like that. Furthermore, to those who invite you to expose yourself in competition, you always respond with the same litany that has continued even from times when there was no fear of an imminent disaster worldwide. Doctor Rossi: I think I interpret the “exasperation” of those who had the “”misfortune”” of bumping into you many years ago and believing in the sincerity of intentions and authenticity of the statements of a person who has had a very personal and researchal existence difficult and tormented but which I repeat, as in a previous email of mine to which you gave no reply, affirming the obligation towards yourself and all those who believed in you and still believe, to come out and stop with the content tests ” household “which, I must say, leave even those who know little about electronics baffled, follow the advice of those who beg you to be more convincing to the full advantage of this stubborn resistance to reaching this notorious pre-order of one million units. Finally believe whoever is inciting you to expose yourself and the support in your favor will be colossal; You owes it also by virtue of the great work done by your team, since very often you takes the opportunity to extend the thanks that come from your supporters to them. What better way to realize this thanks than a disruptive declaration to the world!
    After the heartfelt prayer, ……. I ask you: in 2018 I sent through the specific Leonardo Corporation website the request for n. 2 Ecat home and between 2021 and 2022 the request in several tranches of n. 20 Ecat Skleps these requests of mine as they will be treated at the start of shipments:
    1) they will be processed individually with the priority determined by the specific date sending of the request via form
    2) they will be cumulated with the priority deriving from the date of first forwarding of 2018 ( 10/02/2018)
    Kind regards Dr. Rossi, I respect you very much and I pray you: do not respond with a “thank you for the suggestion” or expressing sympathy for what I say because it would be extremely offensive to those who have been following you for over 10 long years of waiting; it applies to me and to all the people who have addressed the same exhortations to you. The time is ripe to act.
    Thank you.

    I am sending you the email which in Italian due to my poor English which would not allow you to fully grasp the meaning of my statements.

    Dr. Rossi,

    Since *Energy Density* is one of the areas where the Ecat-SKLep is exceptional, I thought it would be interesting to compare the energy output of the SKLep to Barrels of Oil—

    Background:
    1) kWh-Equivalent of Barrel of Oil (BTU): 1700 kWh
    2) kWh produced by Barrel of oil (generator): 540 kWh

    Results:
    1) For the 3 yr Warranty period, the SKLep is equivalent to:
    a) 1.6 barrels of oil (BTU) and
    b) 4.9 barrels of oil (electricity).

    2) For the 11.4 yr Service life, the SKLep is equivalent to:
    a) 5.9 barrels of oil (BTU) and
    b) 18.5 barrels of oil (electricity).

    I didn’t factor volumes into the comparisons, but for the record, the volume of the SKLep is 0.5 liters, and the volume for a barrel of oil is 159 liters.

    Best Wishes,
    WaltC

    1. My understanding is that the ECat SKlep requires a 12 V DC source connected to the grid. I was wondering why?
    A 12 V DC source has a 120 V AC Input connected to the power grid, step down transformer and circuitry to convert AC to DC

    2. Could you simulate this situation by using a 12 V battery which is connected in an Inverter to produce
    120 V AC then connect the same device to convert the 120 V AC to DC then connect everything to the ground
    terminal of the house (the green wire)!

    Hello,
    the questions say that one E-cat with AC output can continuously power a TV set. Therefore, I have questions:
    1. Can one E-cat with AC output give electricity directly to the grid in EU countries? Or maybe it needs an inverter?
    2. Is the electricity generated by the E-Cat of sufficient quality to be fed into the grid?
    3. E-Cat needs an inverter to feed electricity into the grid.

    best regards and good health

    Dan Galburt:
    Q1: yes, based on your definition of SSM ( see my answer to your former comment )
    Q2: no: please see my answers to your last 2 comments
    I agree with the final conclusion of this comment of yours
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Dan Galburt

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    The only information I have about the ECat SKLep are the specifications given on the ECat.com web site.

    I am treating the ECat SKLep as a real working device and that:

    1. You have manufactured and tested a number of production prototype units

    2. You have tested units and found they meet your specifications.

    3. You are preparing for the volume manufacture of many units.

    According to your specifications the ECat SKLep needs to be connected to a 12 VDC power supply, and the ECat SKLep will draw about 1 watt of power from that power source. As long as the power source remains connected, the ECat SKLep will output 12 VDC with sufficient current to transfer 100 watts of power to a suitable load.
    Since the ECat SKLep requires a power input from an external source it clearly does not run in a self-sustained mode. Maybe some future version will run in an SSM mode but not the design you have tested and are preparing to manufacture and sell.

    Question 1
    Do you agree?

    Since the ECat SKLep does not run in an SSM mode, a while ago, I proposed you do a test where the external grid connected 12 VDC power supply is replaced by a battery that is automatically recharged from the output of ECat SKLep itself. At the time you did not see the value of such a test, and you suggested that when I get an ECat SKLep I could do the test myself. Fast forward to now, and I find that the test I had suggested may have been done, but that the loop back idea did not work.

    Question 2
    Is this true?

    I believe that replacing the grid connected power supply with a battery and automatically recharging the battery using the output of the ECat SKLep should work, but if you have tried it and couldn’t get it to work, then I will have to wait till I get an ECat SKLep and try it myself.

    Warm Regards

    Dan Galburt
