    Gerard McEk:
    When we will start the deliveries we will supply a manual with all the suggestions necessary for the common cases, like the ones exposed by you. Specil cases will have either our consulting or the help of a professional, depending on the specific situations. Surely we will contact you to see if you can help us.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,
    Many of those who preordered the SKLep will use them for purposes that involve other electrical apparatus. I for example want to connect them to a solar in-grid inverter.
    For those purposes we need more information to ensure they fit to each other.
    Can you tell how the SKLep acts in case of a higher resistance. Is it like a current source? In that case the voltage would rise, but to what level? Or does it simply switch off? What if the output resistance would be lower than 1 ohm, would the voltage drop? Can a capacitor or battery be connected parallel to the load resistor? What are the Do’s and Dont’s for stable operation?
    I hope it is you intention to prepare a exhaustive specification that provides all the characteristics of this Ecat SKLep. I would recommend an experienced electrical engineer to do this. (You could hire me😊).
    Thanks if you can answer, kind regards Gerard.

    Mark:
    No, if you look the photography on
    http://www.ecat.com
    you can see that the bottom is closed. To watch the plasma could damage the view. In the prototype shown in the video we left a small window for experimental issues.

  • Mark

    Dear Mr. Rossi. Thank you for your answer. I have another question. If I buy Ecat SKLep, can I look into the plasma light, is it safe? Thank you.

    Dear Mr. Rossi. What is the light visible under the ecat in the film and UNIBO report? Thank you.
    Mark:
    The light of the plasma

  • Albert Ellul

    Dear Andrea,

    The Lep is specified as having a life of 100,000 hours.
    1- Is this calculated at continuous maximum power production?
    2- Will it last longer if underutilised?
    3 – Or will it last 100,000 hours independent of usage/load/total power produced?

    !00,000 hours = 11 years which is of course an incredible specification. Will it’s electronics/artificial brain last that long? Can the brain be replaced by just removing the old one and wiring the new one??

  • Clem

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    When I saw in the presentation video that the energy consumed by the power source is the sole energy consumed by the system, I got moved.
    Thank you and thank you,
    Cheers
    Clem

  • Dear Andrea
    A wise decision to stop the production of ECATSKled. Now focus all your efforts on the mass production of the LEP. 100K orders at $ 250 each is a nice fund forecast to get you started. And if I could produce a single compact generator with a power of 1 or 2kW (think mopeds and… my little electric boat) I think the reservations would skyrocket! What to do with already built LED lamps? I don’t know how many there are, but you could give one as a tribute to the first who have booked at least 10 LEP and keep some for a future energy museum that will be named after you.

  • Lima

    Dear Dr. Rossi:
    I ordered 20 LKlep 12V input 110V output for 2000W total parallel. Would it be possible to add more modules in the future to increase the power of this setup?
    Regards,
    Lima

  • Iggy Dalrymple

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    1) As I recall from discussions months ago, the SKLep would need a battery buffer to power electric motors?
    2) And an SKLep could directly power resistive loads such as electric stove or oven or electric water heater, without need for battery buffer?
    3) But both examples would benefit from a small battery input which if solar charged would allow for operation when the grid is down?
    Best Regards,
    Iggy

    DEAR READERS, I WANT TO ADD WHAT FOLLOWS:
    all the Skleds that have been pre-ordered are automatically cancelled. If you want to replace your SKLed order with a SKLep order, please place a new order at
    http://www.ecatorders.com
    If you have further questions about ordering, please contact
    info@ecatorders.com

    DEAR READERS:
    IMPORTANT COMMUNICATION
    After the presentation of December 9th 2021 we have received almost 100,000 orders for the Ecat SKLep ( electricity generator ), while most of the orders we had precedently for the Ecat SKLed ( lamp ) have been cancelled and turned into orders of the SKLep. While the orders for the SKLep are constantly increasing, the arrival of new orders for the SKLed is almost reduced to zero.
    The market spoke clearly, and we must take advice of the fact that the numbers of the SKLed will never reach a quantity of units ordered that will allow a mass production, therefore the price of it would be unsustainable from the buyers. As a consequence of this fact the Ecat SKLed has been put out of our production program.
    All the Readers that have still pending orders for the Ecat SKLed must consider it cancelled. Who decides to buy an Ecat SKLep instead will conserve the number in the list of priority for the deliveries.
    Leonardo Corporation will proceed only with the Ecat SKLep.
    We thank with all our heart the Readers that have ordered one or moreEcat SKLed, but we think that the Ecat SKLep can make much more than the SKLed and its price is extremely popular, so that everybody can buy it, considering that its payback time is about 1 year.
    Thank you for your attention, a real privilege to us,
    Warm Regards,
    Dr Andrea Rossi, CEO of Leonardo Corporation

    Dear Andrea,

    Hoping for the SKLep to become easy for you to mass produce. Is it possible before next summer? If you become able to produce millions and millions of units, it would make significant improvements to the quality of life standards many nations. I believe that even Tesla would be impressed if you can do this.

    Godspeed,
    Tom

  • Urs

    Dear Mr. Rossi,
    it is just astonishing: One ecat SKLEP can produce 2 kwh per day – incl minus wastage while charge.
    An ebike could ride 500km with this energy per day, a Vespa Elettrica about 40km.
    A car could drive 80km per week (14kwh).
    What belongs to the production: When do you expect to start it?
    Spring? Summer? Maybe you expect some major customers?
    Best regards
    Urs

  • Ed Yu

    Dear Andrea, you can tell the number of ordered SKLed, and whether there is the likelihood of their appearance on sale? Why did the SKLed disappear on the site for order?

  • Paul Dianno

    Hello Andrea, imagine that tomorrow you wake up with 1000000 of preorders. how long would you need to produce and sell them ?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Gennady:
    More powered modules will arrive, but not in a short term.
    Answers:
    1. you are right, but we can help to resolve the problem, depending on the specific cases.
    2. not true
    Thank you for your suggestions,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Andrea,

    An interesting way to measure total current output over an extended period of time would be to electroplate copper onto a nickel anode and measure the increase in mass. (Each mole of copper Cu++ will require 2e- electrons.)

    eernie1:
    I have to think about that. There is an immense work done…but the market is rejecting them to buy the SKLep, and sell them making every piece by handcraft make a price that you don’t want to know.

  • fabrizio sgorlon

    Good morning Dr Rossi Andrea

    1- Is it legal to install 30 ECAT EP, in series, in Italy, to produce 3KW, inside the national power line, for domestic use? Does Italian ENEL approve?

    2-by purchasing 30 ECAT EPs for Italy, will I have to pay VAT + 20%?

    3-Is a normal electrician enough to install 30 ECAT EP in series in the domestic power line? or do you send your own technician?

    4-I am not a scientist but , please do you confirm ECAT EP COP is 100 ?

    Thank you Dr Rossi
    Best regards
    Fabrizio sgorlon Jesolo lido italy

  • Paul

    Andrea,

    Have you tried running the E-Cat-SKLEP control board with a 12V capacitor, then having the output of the E-Cat SKLEP charge the capacitor (in parallel to the load). To start things up you would just have to charge up the capacitor to 12V from an external source, then remove the external source. To stop, just disconnect the control board from the capacitor. Use diode(s) to prevent current flowing from the capacitor to the E-Cat SKLED cell or from the capacitor to the load during start-up.

    V/R,

    Paul

    Dear Andrea,
    What are you going to do with the 100 units you manufactured?

  • Gavino Mamia

    1 SKLep (250$) + 25 SKLed (625$) = 875$ = 250.000 lumen x 100.000 ore
    25 SKLep (6250$) + 25 led tradizional (100$) = 250.000 lumen x 100.000 ore

  • Gennady

    Dear Andrea,

    I appreciate a fast response. Also, the reason I asked you the question below was twofold.

    “Dear Andrea,
    Are we expecting a 500 w, 1 kW, 2 kw SKLep in the next 12 months?”

    1. To combine multiple units would require a degree of knowledge that is not common to the general population. I have a degree in engineering and can do the job. Many other people may lack the expertise. So anyone with requirement of 1, 2,3 KW would need to hire a professional at additional cost to do an integration job.

    2. A higher output unit may have an economy of scales that will not require 20 times as many control systems/AI component, thus may be cheaper to produce than 20 smaller units with the same output.

    This may expand your customer base and ability to pass savings to the buyers of a larger output units due to lower manufacturing costs.

    Kind Regards,

    Gennady

  • Gavino Mamia

    Sì hai ragione, il TUO SKled consuma 4W per avere 10.000 lumen, ma un led tradizionale ne consuma 100W.
    Quindi se tu non fabbricherai il tuo SKLed per avere 10.000 lumen dovrò consumare tutta la produzione di un SKLep, quindi 10.000 lumen mi costeranno 250$
    Se tu farai SKLed, con un SKLep potrò far funzionare 25 SKLed, quindi ottenere 250.000 lumen.
    Non so se sono riuscito a farmi capire
    GOOGLE TRANSLATOR
    Yes you are right, YOUR SKled consumes 4W to get 10,000 lumens, but a traditional led consumes 100W.
    So if you are not making your own SKLed to get 10,000 lumens I will have to consume all the production of a SKLep, so 10,000 lumens will cost me $ 250.
    If you do SKLed, with one SKLep I will be able to run 25 SKLed, so get 250,000 lumens.
    I don’t know if I managed to make myself understood

  • Italo

    Due to the low weight of the SKLep, two units of it could feed the battery of an e-bike normally 36 V, 100/200 Watt-15 Ah and have an infinite autonomy

  • Marius

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Does the SKLep require an internet connection to work?
    Best Regards,
    Marius

  • Andrea Rossi

    Gavino Mamia:
    Correct
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Gavino Mamia:
    The SKLed consumes 4 Wh/h
    Tha SKLep generates 100 Wh/h
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Michele:
    I sympathise with yoy, but the price of 25 $ for 1 SKLed is possible only if we cam make 1 million pcs. If I tell you how much costed to make 100 pcs, as I did, you could not believe it. I am sorry.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Mario:
    I do not know this matter enough to be able to answer,
    Warm Regards,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- I do not know the technical and administrative issues to send energy in the grid
    2- no, you first make the ser/par assemblies, then you connect the proper inverter and step-up/down system
    3- send it also to info@leonardocorp1996.com
    4- yes
    5- it does not depend on me
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Gennady:
    You can combine, respectively, 5, 10, 20 SKLep to gat it all now, with the same price and dimensions,
    Warm Regards,
