  • Dear Dr. Rossi,
    I am simply an Italian craftsman and I work in the sector of beauty. I would like to know, if possible of course, if in a near future E-cat could allow to obtain also UVB tanning frequencies, infrared frequencies and RGB lights, to equip chromotherapy devices.
    Many thanks, LP

    Daar Andrea,

    In addition to your patent, it is possible to register INTUAL PROPERTY of hardware products, if that is not yet registered (especially the ecatskl series) then it makes sense to register this everywhere in Europe, US and all other countries.

    I wish you a lot of success with your ecatskLed and the energy ecatSKL versions and hope that you can also bring the energy related products to the market soon.

    with kind regards, Jitse

    Dear Andrea,

    In a book that my wife gave me for my 50th birthday, two inventions by Nicola Tesla are mentioned.

    The book, which dates from 1899 and is called

    “Electricity, its generation and its use in industry and commerce”

    Fourth, improved and increased edition
    With 11 plates and 824 text illustrations

    by Arthur Wilke, electrical engineer.
    Publishing and printing by Otto Spamer in Leipzig 1899

    The book describes inventions by Nicola Tesla, one is the induction motor, the other the invention of the cold light lamp.

    What is interesting
    the author of the book about the cold light lamp writes:

    “The light emitted by the lamp is not very intense, however. However, it is not the current practicality that gives the lamp its significance, but the fact that it generates light without heat and that it is only connected to the electricity generator by a wire.

    The beginnings are given here, but a beginning is made, and we can hope that the near future will bring us heatless light in a form that can be used in practice.

    And what advantage does it promise us? Perhaps a reader asks; Now we can expect that with the same expenditure of energy we can operate about 10 to 20 times the power compared to today’s incandescent lamps and with every horsepower expended about 200 sixteen-candle lamps.”

    That was more than 122 years ago.

    Together with its investor Westinghouse, Tesla had won the project to supply the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago with electricity and lighting. That was a big breakthrough for Tesla’s AC technology.

    Now you have invented the E-CAT SKL that generates electricity and the E-CAT SKLed that generates light and is also “cold”.

    I also wish you such a breakthrough with the E-CAT SKL and the E-CAT SKLed!

    With warm regards

    Ulrich

    Larry:
    Thank you for your opinion.
    I want to precise that:
    1- I do not think that my technology is based on LENR, as I said many times. Its theoretical principles have been explained on
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    2- 1 million lamps are the beginning, not the end
    3- we are pursuing also the line of electricity and heat production.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Please understand that the following comments come from someone who believes strongly in the future of LENR. And one who believes strongly that disruptive technology such as LENR is needed to help the world survive global warming (just look at how the world has handled COVID…there are too many people putting their own feelings/wealth ahead of the personal sacrifice needed to minimize the death and permanent side effects of COVID to believe the effort to reduce global warming will be any different.)

    The first ECAT product is a technology wonder. But how much can it really contribute to making the world more green? There are probably at least 5 billion lights used every day in the world. A one million piece production run will have essentially negligible impact on the lighting industry and even less impact on global warming.

    Lamps are not just light sources, they are an interior design item. A technologist such as myself and many bloggers here will look at he image of the SKLed and be amazed a product is finally here, but, frankly, it is not an aesthetically pleasing lamp. Also if you look closely at the prototype, it is not a polished housing…rough surfaces, crude base, ugly chrome plated screw on the side etc. I strongly suspect that the true production version will have better finish, but this one is not pleasing to the eye no matter how pleasing its technological achievement. Its market penetration into homes is going to be very small. Industrial lighting is probably the best market for the technology, but the current lamp is not suited for easy retrofit into large area lighting fixtures. Market penetration through new builds will be very slow.

    I think the true short term value of the SKLed will be marketing of LENR. This lamp, with proper publicity, will help make LENR and ECAT into household names. This will help force industry and governments to respond and move to LENR much quicker than if the consumers remain largely unaware of the technology.

    Considering the size of the markets, this production run is a very small investment. Since volume pricing for 1K pieces is $20, we can assume a production run of 1million pieces will be less that $20 million. For comparison, a new wafer fab costs 10 billion dollars. I strongly urge Leonardo Corporation to find funding for this production run and just do it, don’t wait for orders. If Leonardo Corporation cash position is not enough to handle this cash flow, then reach out to large philanthropic organizations such as the Gates Foundation to get the funding as a grant, or as a low interest loan (0%?). Or get gofundme to sell the first units. Find a way to get the money and just do it! I assume getting startup funding from people who would want a piece of the pie is out of the question.

    Then deliver samples to all major movers such as tech blogging influencers, government officials (probably target their aids), industrial leaders etc. If they see the product on their desk, they will be more likely to overcome the bad history of LENR that put in in the minds of many people as a fraud the likes of making a perpetual motion machine.

    Think big…the ultimate long term goal would be to legislatively ban any light source that is not as efficient as the SKLed technology unless the light source needs specific technology such as being a true point source, deep UV light source, specific shape for illumination needs (such as pumping laser fibers) etc. Then maybe after ten years the SKLed will be the “go to” lighting method…except for the home unless you can make it small enough to fit into a designer lamp or ceiling fixture, offer different color temperatures etc.

    Shorter term goal will be to penetrate industrial lighting by working with experts in the field to develop a product line to make retrofitting into warehouse and office ceiling lighting relatively easy, with short period investment payback on behalf of the consumer.

    But I fear that the SKLed will remain a novelty item, and only LENR devices with electrical power output will truly be sold in volume and change the world. Imagine a smaller power unit that can be easily attached to a wall beside the circuit breaker panel of every building and home, similar to UPS whole house units. Installed by an electrician. Bypass the industrial giants who have a vested interest to make LENR fail, or who are horribly slow to react to new technology and instead go straight to the consumer. Rossi’s idea about owning the units and selling the power so that there is limited capital equipment costs for the buyer will make this happen faster, but this has HUGE investment costs in the billions, not millions. But even that can be obtained.

    I look forward to a new brighter world once LENR takes hold. (no pun intended :))

    Cher Docteur Rossi,
    je soutiens totalement votre thèse concernant la nécessité d’un prix très bas obtenu à l’usine, grâce à la fabrication programmée d’une grosse quantité d’appareils ,et aussi j’imagine grâce un gros effort de la part de votre société.
    Ce prix va permettre de diffuser plus facilement ce produit parmi les gens incrédules malheureusement toujours influencés par tous ces trolls bien maléfiques !
    J’ajoute que nous, vos fervents supporters, devons maintenant être très présents sur le terrain pour assurer la promotion de cet extraordinaire projecteur, et vous permettre de réaliser cette quantité.
    Nous pourrons prier pour que la communauté scientifique ne reste pas dans ce silence assourdissant lorsque toutes ces lampes seront allumées !
    Salutations chaleureuses.
    François

    Yes, the US Navy has replicated the invention patented by Andrea Rossi, and this is good, but they forgot to cite the prior art of Dr Rossi in the patent application of theirs, whose Claim 3- the most important of their application of 2019- is the photocopy of the claim 1 of Rossi’s patent granted by the USPTO in 2015.

    Koen Vandewalle:
    Thank you for your opinion, but only if we reach that order of magnitude we can offer that price. With a minor order of magnitude, the price would be much higher and nobody would buy the product, with exception of several hundreds of subjects aiming only to a reverse engineering. For obvious reasons, we are not interested to follow this path, as difficult as the reverse engineering might be.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Andrea,

    You propose the concept of network selling. Half a life ago I also dared to do this, and indeed such a system works on a human scale. A fixed characteristic of products that go into network sales is that the official sales price is multiplied several times. This is to cover the costs for driving around and the palaver.

    I don’t know if there are enough enthusiasts to get to a million copies sold. Wouldn’t it be wise to also set a price so that delivery can be made anyway? Some electronics can also be made to order in small quantities.

    If we already had a few models to take to the streets, it would be easier. At the very least, we can then fine-tune some concrete applications in growing and flourishing markets where we know cheap artificial light has a huge competitive advantage, and where no whole boards of directors need to decide on the purchase. These tests can take several months to even a year.

    Maybe you can think of this as plan B.

    Kindest regards,
    Koen

    US DOE posted some results recently. The long-awaited first results from the Muon g-2 experiment at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.

    First results from Fermilab’s Muon g-2 experiment strengthen evidence of new physics

    The long-awaited first results from the Muon g-2 experiment at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory show fundamental particles called muons behaving in a way that is not predicted by scientists’ best theory, the Standard Model of particle physics. This landmark result, made with unprecedented precision, confirms a discrepancy that has been gnawing at researchers for decades.

    The strong evidence that muons deviate from the Standard Model calculation might hint at exciting new physics. Muons act as a window into the subatomic world and could be interacting with yet undiscovered particles or forces.

    “Today is an extraordinary day, long awaited not only by us but by the whole international physics community,” said Graziano Venanzoni, co-spokesperson of the Muon g-2 experiment and physicist at the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics. “A large amount of credit goes to our young researchers who, with their talent, ideas and enthusiasm, have allowed us to achieve this incredible result.”

    1. maybe a good idea
    2. I travel with the confidential parts disassembled and put in different bags
    3. he,he,he..yes, waiting for the second dose of my Astra Zeneca Covid vaccination. I made the first one on April 4th, the second should be at the end of May
    4. it will be very, very, very difficult
    5. yes
    6. there is an intelligent system that maintains in your place the Lumens you want. But there is also a manual dimmer vulgaris
    7. after 100 000 hours of operation, assuming 10 hours of operation per day, it lasts 10000 days = 27 years. You send us back the old one, that we recycle completely, and buy a new one with a discount of 10%

    Dear Andrea,

    The SKLed device sounds like a very interesting proposition. Although, I am sure all of us are in a great anticipation for a self sustaining eCat SKL that produces 10 to 20 kw that we can use in our homes. Are we expecting such a device to be also presented on 25th of November and being offered on sale in 2021? If not, then when?

    Kind Regards,

    Gentilissimo Dott. Rossi, alcune domande e considerazioni per Lei:

    1. Non sarebbe il caso di considerare la possibilità di poter produrre e mettere in vendita una versione sommergibile del E-CAT SKled, per i sub e per i sottomarini a scopo turistico?

    2. Quando Lei è partito per venire in Italia avrà subito i controlli del bagaglio con raggi gamma, non ha avuto paura di un pericolo di visione della componentistica interna?

    3. Si trova ancora in Italia? Lei ha ancora la sua potente Alfa Romeo?

    4. Non esiste il pericolo, dopo la commercializzazione dell’E-CAT SKled, di una ingegnerazione inversa via raggi gamma, tac, raggi x, ecc.?

    5. In genere i LED per illuminazione hanno una vita stimata da 30,000 a 50,000 ore di funzionamento, ma invece l’E-CAT SKled offre addirittura 100,000 ore di corretto funzionamento, giusto?

    6. Come fare per poter dimmerare la luce? Esiste una manopola dietro o lo si fa sulla linea di alimentazione attraverso un dimmer elettronico a tecnologia PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) con una frequnza intorno ai 400 Hz?

    7. Come fare a sostituire la cartuccia del combustibile? Non si era detto che sarebbe stato facile come sostituire le cartuccie d’inchiostro delle comuni stampanti domestiche?

    Perdoni le troppe domande, ma le Sue risposte saranno utili a tutti i lettori, grazie in anticipo.

    English version:

    Dear Dr. Rossi, some questions and considerations for you:

    1. Wouldn’t it be worth considering the possibility of producing and selling a submersible version of the E-CAT SKled, for divers and submarines for tourism purposes?

    2. When you left to come to Italy, you will have undergone the gamma-ray baggage checks, were you not afraid of a danger of vision of the internal components?

    3. Are you still in Italy? Do you still have your powerful Alfa Romeo?

    4. Is there no danger, after the commercialization of the E-CAT SKled, of reverse engineering via gamma rays, CT scans, x-rays, etc.?

    5. Lighting LEDs typically have an estimated life of 30,000 to 50,000 hours of operation, but the E-CAT SKled offers 100,000 hours of proper operation, right?

    6. How can I dim the light? Is there a knob behind it or is it done on the power line through an electronic dimmer with PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) technology with a frequency around 400 Hz?

    7. How do I replace the fuel cartridge? Didn’t you tell yourself it would be as easy as replacing the ink cartridges of common home printers?

    Forgive too many questions, but your answers will be useful to all readers, thanks in advance.

    I wonder how you calculate the entropy ratio between non coherent and coherent configuration of particles

  • WaltC

    Dr. Rossi,
    Would it be possible to, now and then, post the number of ECat-SKLed devices pre-ordered so far?

    Similar the Kickstarter and Indiegogo type sites (which help launch new products), it would be fun to know how we’re progressing and it might generate added enthusiasm to get in on the first run production of a groundbreaking new device.

    Dear Andrea.
    It is obvious that you have tested that the E-Cat SK can deliver the necessary power to make a 12 volt LED emit 10,000 lumens.
    Have you also tested whether the same E-Cat SK can charge a regular 12 volt lead accumulator?
    Have you thereby figured out the magnitude of its charging effect?
    Finding out this is far more interesting than getting an LED light to function, since an accumulator can easily deliver 4Wh/h to drive the E-Cat.
    Regards.

    Could you create a “reseller’s order form” on Leonardo’s website with space for customer’s address and space for seller’s name? You could allow seller to remit purchase price less the 10% commission.

  • Dear Andrea,
    Those who have preordered have an incentive to spread the word, because they know that they will get their devices only once the preorder count reaches one million, and because they know that newcomers do not displace them in the queue.

    In my opinion, offering in addition a 10% fiscal reward sounds an unnecessary complication, and such strategy, if done before official performance measurements have been published, might also backfire by decreasing the credibility of the device. You probably look at it from the justice and fairness points of view, which I respect, but I think that the fairness comes from the first-come-first-served principle of the queue.

    regards, /pekka

    Dear Andrea,

    there are many countries (America is one of them) in which it’s easy to issue lawsuits for even silly matters (I remember a woman who sued a microwave oven producer for not specifying in the user’s manual that a dog can not be dryed in the microwave oven…).
    For this reason a good idea can be to explicitly state that the LED acronym in your product is Light Emitting Device and not Diode, to be safe with legal matters.
    This because you can not confirm or deny if your device contains actual LEDs or not.

    What do you think?

    Luminous regards,
    Marco.
