  • Greetings Andrea,

    Nice to hear you’re getting good orders from the presentation. To help clarify the lumens of the SKLed, please explain how you can get the lumens from your lux measurements. I note that 1 lux = 1 lumen per square meter. It looks in the demo like the light covered about 3 square meters on your wall, so you can multiply your lux reading (around 167) to yield the lumens, or about 500.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Somebody:
    We can be very satisfied of the presentation so far.
    In the first 24 hours from the presentation we received orders for more than 51000 SKLeps.
    Not counting the (many) orders turned from SKLed to SKLep: the market is saying the SKLep is the point of the spear.
    We also received the order cancellations from eight clients that have cancelled their orders for the SKLeds, for a total of 21 SKLeds: they said they are very disappointed of the presentation.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    congratulations for your recent achievement!

    If I understood properly, the SKLep price of 250$ includes:
    – the module itself
    – the power supply
    – the control unit (AI)
    Is this correct ?

    If so, for a package with, lets say
    10 modules sharing the same electronics the price will be less ?
    Can you give us an idea ?

    Last question: do you plan in the future to provide complete application assemblies (for instance a home power generator) ?

    Best Regards,
    Riccardo

    Depends on the situation

  • Bernie Morrissey

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Congratulations on your presentation. I see that the Ecat SKLep can be ordered with an output of 12vdc or 110vac. In your opinion for a whole house application would it be more cost effective to order the 110vac output and use directly or the 12vdc output and use an inverter and battery.
    Thank you
    Bernie Morrissey

  • Somebody

    On a scale from 0 to 10 (10 being totally confident, 0 being the opposite of totally confident) how confident are you that you will receive one million preorders before January 1, 2023?

  • Michele

    yes thanks, but in my opinion there missing the GREAT proof of presence of power,

    At least only from a tactile sensation, the oil seems warmer than the environment?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Michele:
    In the video has been explained clearly what you complain the lack of.
    The load is not a shunt, it is a resistance.
    The delta T was dissipated, so a measure of T was useless.

  • Energy User

    Dear Dr. Rossi –
    in the presentation of the SKLep – beside the ecat itself there is alot of additional equipment on the table – a rather large power supply and various parts of electronics you refer to as the AI controller.

    Will these electronis be part of the product you put out for preorder or will they have to be purchased seperately?

    Will they come in a seperate device / box or will they be miniturized into the ecat itself?

    Thank you for your reply.

  • Dear Andrea!

    I beg your petition – I did not notice my typo – I mean, of course, SKLep

    An electric generator with such parameters is a real clean and inexhaustible energy without radioactive waste and CO2 air pollution

    With deep respect,
    Irina and Vitaly Uzikov

  • TOUSSAINT françois

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    Congratulations for your presentation, one question please in the futur do you think it is possible to scale up the power of the SKLEP 1Kw, 10 Kw or more?

    Kind regards,

    Toussaint françois

  • Dear Dr. Rossi,

    as it seems, You finally finished the manual control of 10.000 connectors.

    Are You planning to make this wire schematic also available for public ?

    Regards

    Karl

  • Michele

    good morning mr. Rossi, thanks for presentation, while there was for my opinion little data, I suppose: 12.7V / 1.3ohm =9.76Ampere that circulate on the shunt resistor, a lot power! the most important data missing: the temperature of shunt resitor immersed in oil? (or the temperature you mesaured in your tests if in the presentation there was not possible to add a thermometer?) thanks

  • Gavino Mamia

    Egregio Dott. Rossi
    Ero convinto che SKLep costasse quando SKLed o poco più, o perlomeno lo speravo.
    Saremmo stati così liberi dalla Russia e dal suo gas, liberi dai Paesi Arabi e dal petrolio, le nostre automobili libere dalle batterie cinesi.
    Sognavo che il terzo mondo potesse bere con la desalinizzazione del mare, scaldarsi e cucinare senza morire da monossido di carbonio bruciando sterco secco.
    Con questi costi l’SKLep non farà concorrenza ai fossili ma solamente al solare ed eolico.
    Probabilmente in futuro i costi scenderanno ma sarà troppo tardi per il pianeta e per me che non sono più giovane.
    Ho ordinato un SKlep ma solo per incentivo, perché seguo questo progetto da molti anni, in realtà di 100W non me ne faccio nulla.
    Lo terrò sul mobile per guardarlo tutti i giorni.
    Scusa lo sfogo ma sono estremamente deluso, buon lavoro

  • Dear Andrea!

    Congratulations on the presentation of great products. Particularly impressive are the parameters of the SKLep reactor, which revolutionizes the power industry.

    Dan Galburt:
    Q1: No
    Q2: Depends on the situations. Basically we have 12 V DC
    Q3: We do not put any restriction, while the max power point depends on the situation (” …your Ecat is a very different beast than a solar panel…” I like that !)
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Dan Galburt

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    According to your specification the ECAT SKLep has only 4 wires connecting it to the outside world.
    2 wires for power 12VDC input power
    2 wires for 12VDC output power

    Question
    Are there additional connections wired or wireless that are not yet in the specification?

    Since the 12VDC input power is likely to be coming from a battery an allowable voltage range should be specified.

    Question
    Can you add a voltage range to the input power spec? (Also for the SKLed)

    Solar panels have a load response characteristic that can be represented by a plot of output current vs voltage (IV curve). Assuming a solar panel is illuminated, but not connected to a load, the unloaded output voltage (open circuit voltage) can be measured. The open circuit voltage measured is determined by the physics of the solar cells and how they are wired together. If the output of the solar panel is shorted the output voltage becomes zero and the output current (short circuit current) is determined by the area of the panel, the level of illumination, and the panel’s efficiency. When the output of the solar panel is connected to a resistive load, the ratio of current to voltage is determined by the resistance of the load with the actual current, voltage and power determined by the overall circuit. By varying the value of the load resistor, plots of voltage vs current and power dissipation in the load resistor can be generated. For every solar panel with a given level of illumination there is a unique value of load voltage, current and resistance where maximum power is dissipated in the load resistor. At the maximum power point, the load current is always less than the short circuit current, and the load voltage is less than the open circuit voltage.

    I know that your ECAT SKLep is a very different beast than a solar panel, but I think that IV curves over a range of load resistances giving voltage, current and power would be useful to customers. Also what restrictions there are on the range of load resistance?

    Question
    Are you willing to provide this information?

    Warm Regards
    Dan Galburt

  • Albert Ellul

    Dear Dr. Rossi, Kindly confirm the following:

    What I will be purchasing when I order One ECat SKLep is the following:
    One packaged unit having: Output voltage: 12V; DC Output power: 100W, controls and connection points input and output.

    If this is the case, then I will need 55 units to build up a generator providing approximately 5kW out put power (DC), which then I will be able to invert to 220 V 50Hz AC for home use by means of an inverter which I will purchase separately from third parties.

    Can I order 55 units please?

    OR:

    Will the unit that I have ordered by ready packed for 5 kW output?

    Pardon my ingnorance, maybe I have missed some very important oints.

  • Koen Vandewalle

    Andrea, can we buy heaters too ? HOt air versions and hot water version.

    I got the impression that de SKLed does not produce 10000 lumens. So my plants won’t grow.

    I find the SKLep too expensive to heat water. For powering lapotop and computernetwork SKLep has a good price.

    For preparing food, I continu for now with a gas stove and bottles of propane: 27 € / 100 kWh

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Will you be giving periodic updates on what progress has been made toward the 1,000,000 order number?

  • Mats Heijkenskjold

    Dear Andrea,
    Congratulations for the SKL ep product!

    I have studied the specs and think I could use may be 15 units in order to run my heat pump. Of course I also need some converter also for the 230V..

    Now a practical question: How to connect the units? In parallell and is it possible to control all units to deliver exactly 12.00 V? But how in practice?

    Best regards,
    Mats Heijkenskjold

    Dirk Boon,
    Thank you. Today has been a very hard day: our sites and the video have been overcrowded, hackered, the video has been out of service for one hour in all Europe, out IT guys worked like dogs, at the end we succeeded to break the ice… Your comment gives us solace.

    Dr. Andrea Rossi,
    The specifications of the new Ecat-SKLep are fantastic! You and your team deserve to be congratulated for such amazing work!

    Since “expected operational lifespan” of 100K hours is an important part of the specs, a few questions:

    1) How confident are you in the 100K hour lifespan number?

    2) Was that number derived by theoretical means or by extrapolation of empirical measurements, or…?

    3) If empirical extrapolation was used, is there some “consumable” element of the SKLep that leads to that lifespan?

    4) What is the longest that you’ve run any of the variant Ecats?

    5) Do you have any plans to non-stop run 1 or more SKLep devices to monitor long-term behavior?

    6) If you do that, is there any chance you could do it on a streaming camera setup so that the whole-wide-world could watch along?

    Thanks, Best Wishes,
    WaltC

  • Mario

    Hi Andrew,
    Today is a landmark day in history, but I don’t understand why an electric generator is ten times more expensive than a lamp? After all, they supposedly work on the same principle and have common parts. What it comes from? Buying a lamp is profitable, but not a generator.
    Under my conditions, it will never pay off, even if it lasts 10 years and it won’t break. Electricity costs similarly, at least for the moment. In addition, you need to buy a battery that is not cheap. If you can, explain it to me, because I’m afraid you won’t collect a million.

    Kind regards
    Mario

  • Koen Vandewalle

    Hi Andrea,

    I have watched with great care today’s presentation and studied it as best I could.

    It seems clear to me that with one SKLep I can shine two headlights of a car, type H4 12 Volt 55 Watt. Together they will produce 2500 lumens of a very pleasant color temperature.

    one H4 is +/- 2 Ohms.

    If I have 4 “input-Watt” SKLep devices, I can produce 10,000 lumens with halogen lamps.

    Cost tag 1000€ for SKLep devices.

    Is it OK if I change my order from SKLed to SKLep via the route you suggested earlier? Of course for (at least) the same amount.

    With best regards,

    Koen

  • Buon giorno e complimenti per lavoro. Ho visto presentazione ma la cosa più interessante la trovo nel report dell’università di Bologna si dice:Il prototipo in esame sembra generare una potenza di circa 100W pur assorbendo meno di 1W. Che livello di replicabilità ha?
