    Frank Acland:
    This is a crystal ball question, albeit had you asked me while you were here on December 9th if I could collect orders for 400000 units in 20 days, I would answer “certainly not”.
    We’ll see, but be sure we are not going to let the grass grow up under our shoes.

    Dear Andrea

    Would you support starting a hashtag for ECAT/SKLep for social media networking?

    Eg hashtagECAT, and/or hashtagSKLep? (I did not use the # on purpose),
    # LeonardoCorp ???

    we could also start using associated hashtags such as # green energy.

    Regards

    Dear Rossi/SKL supporters:
    Corrections and constructive criticism regarding this post are welcome.
    This post is long, but I hope fellow Ecat enthusiasts will take the time to read it and take action as they feel comfortable in doing.
    The ECAT website has a “Join Us” tab with the headline: “Be part of the team”. See https://.com/join-us
    The final paragraph appeals to us that we “become a member of the team together with your community, spreading the word and helping to reach one million preorders to make the lamp and the power source as affordable as possible. It will allow us all to light up and power the world in a sustainable way.” I am writing this post to encourage you to do so, and to give some suggestions on how this might happen.
    RATIONAL:
    Why is it important to “spread the word”? Rossi needs to hit the one million piece order for economy of scale to start up his production lines. While the hitting 400K in less than a month is extremely encouraging, it is not a guarantee that the rate of pre-orders will not drop off. Let me use a Pandemic analogy…the #D921 event was like a superspreader yielding a huge spike in orders, but if the R value is not high enough the launch will drizzle out. We, as supporters, can help keep the R value up to keep the orders coming in at a fast rate by spreading the word. (In this analogy, R value is how many customers pass on the information so that new people “get infected” and place orders, R has to be greater than one to ensure a fast ramp to the one million target).) Even if the R value is greater than one right now, the higher it is the faster we get to a production launch, and the faster the world can stop wasting billions of dollars on things like fusion R&D, and stop the surging trend toward fission power reactors, reducing fossil fuel consumption, etc.
    You might be reluctant to “join the team” since ground breaking technology like the SKLep always gets bashed by the scientific community since it goes against how they currently think the world of science works. This has been the case for millennia, events like “the world is not the center of the universe” comes to mind. The fact that the SKLep superficially looks like a perpetual motion machine does not help. It has been a popular belief that ZPE is not accessible as Garret Moddel, Professor Emeritus, Photonics & Quantum Engineering, UofColorado discusses in his presentation at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tGRhTXKh8A about his ZPE research journey. But please take the risk of some knee jerk skeptical feed back and pass on. The Ecat website also references the WiKipedia ZPE article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero-point_energy#External_links which is much more technical and exhaustive discussion of ZPE.
    TALKING POINTS
    You will need “talking points”. Here is a start, corrections and constructive criticism are welcome.
    1) Andrea Rossi and team have been working on this new technology for over a decade, and finally are taking pre-production orders for a 100W, 12V power source https://ecat.com/ecat-sklep. It comes with a pre-orders, cancelable at any time, order payable only when shipped, and no credit card info needed to place an order. Complete refund within 60 days if it does not meet the specifications, and a three year warranty.
    2) The product has been CE certified.
    3) The device is patented United States Patent no. US 9,115,913 B1
    4) Rossi has publication (PDF) E-Cat SK and long-range particle interactions (researchgate.net) which discusses the physics that may properly explain the energy production of the SKLep. For less technical discussion of zero point energy see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tGRhTXKh8A . An extremely simple explanation is that there is a plasma discharge of special design that promotes an electron phase change of clusters of electrons that allows energy extraction from the zero point energy which exists everywhere.
    5) The device has been independently tested by Giuseppe Levi, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Bologna, see Measurement of SK-Ecat performance in a series of sessions from October 20 to November 19 2021, and Performance of SK-Ecat prototype on asix hours period.

    WHO TO CONTACT
    Andrea has shared that the bulk of the orders to get to the first 300K was “larger orders”. Orders such as my own of 0.0002% of the target quantity will not have any real impact on reaching the goal, the order quantities that will reach the goal have to be in the hundreds, if not thousands each. So please indeed share this exciting technology within your personal social sphere, after all this is a world changing event that we can participate in, at least a low level. But more important try to network with persons you encounter that could eventually lead to larger orders. As an example, if you have a tech rep show up at work for Keithly instruments, discuss this over coffee break. If the Rep’s interest is peaked enough, you can email them the links/info above, and they might take it to their boss who might recognize this product as a way to enhance their higher power rated power supply product line, converting them from AC main power source to SKLep power source with similar price point but vastly reduced power consumption. The list of applications is as long as the list of power sources, instruments, devices and appliances that need hundreds of watts DC.

  • Albert Ellul

    Dear Dott. Rossi,

    Are you researching into E-Cat SKLeps in the shape of small-sized batteries including mobile phone ones and and other similar application?

  • LarryG

    Dear Readers of the JoNP,
    The Wikipedia entry “Energy Catalyzer” is anti-Ecat, and full of errors including the most fundamental one of claiming it is a LENR device. Perhaps one of the supporters here has enough Wikipedia editing knowledge to at least insert at the beginning a reference to Rossi’s paper at the very start of the article with reference to the fact that Rossi makes no such claim that it is LENR.

  • Mats Heijkenskjold

    Dear Andrea,

    Sorry to disturb you with another question:

    If I buy 20 SKLep arranged in parallell giving 24 V DC out and they are delivered.
    For some reason later after delivery I will have them in series with 240 V DC out, is that possible?

    The question comes up from available inverter possibilities.

    Best regards and hopefully soon 1 M orders!

    Mats Heijkenskjold

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    I wish you a happy and successful 2022! In percentage terms, what do you think the chances are that you will start mass production of your Ecat SKLeps this year?

    Best wishes,

    this could be the synoptic succession:
    1- point zero energy
    2- dV/dt with high V
    3- increase of ZBW and Aharonov-Bohm effect
    4- matterwaves from ZBW
    5- electrons phase change
    6- formation of electrons clusters in phase
    7-

  • JPR

    Dr Rossi,
    Can you write down a synopsis of the theoretical system described in the paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    and of which we watched the experimental confirmation in the video of December 9 I watched on http://www.e-catworld.com
    ?

  • Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Auguri,

    My/our best wishes to you, your family and your team for a Happy and Healthy New Year.

    I/we also hope for the growing success of the SKLep.

    As they say, ‘success’ comes before ‘work’, only in the Dictionary.

    I will try to have a few questions in the New Year.

    Joseph Fine

  • Andrea Rossi

    Barry Mead:
    1. The AC output is made by an inverter. By default, the output of the Ecat SKLep is DC
    2. yes
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Somebody:
    It depends on the kind of the specific non-profit organization. Many of them use 90% of the money they collect to pay wages to their managers, secretaries and so on, some of them are really useful and honest. Somebody is good, somebody is not, and we need to make a due diligence about the “somebody” we are dealing with.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Somebody

    Hmmmm…it seems like you didn’t answer my last question. Perhaps I did not phrase it well. Sorry about that. Let me try, again. Will you be offering any special discounts on SKLEPs to non-profit organizations or will non-profit organizations have to pay the same amount for SKLEPs as everybody else?

  • Barry Mead

    Dear Dr. Rossi:
    Another poster already asked if the inverter is included in the price and it is not, so this brings up a couple more questions.

    1. Does the SKLep unit with the AC output use a Leonardo Corporation inverter, or an industry standard inverter?
    2. Can the output of this inverter drive an inductive load?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:

  • Gianvico

    An happy ECat year 2022.

  • Somebody

    I would like to know if there will be any discounts given to non-profit organizations. I’m thinking about a certain farm animal sanctuary out in the country in my region whose director told me that their energy bill can get pretty expensive, especially in the winter. SKLEPs, and batteries, may be a good option for powering their sanctuary.

  • Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for the Christmas Holiday gift to mankind! I would wish you a Happy New Year, but you already have that happiness as mentioned before through your purpose, giving and thankfulness displayed. However, I wish you a prosperous and peaceful New Year to enhance your happiness to its fullest as well as to your team and family with God’s blessings.

    Rodolfo:
    Good question.
    Now we have other priorities than design, so we are now using standard plastic boxes already used for other items that are very cheap and easy to find and assemble, and without waste of space when assembled in series or parallels.
    Eventually we will work on the design: we already have an architect studying the problem, but so far we must make things at a cost as low as possible and as easy to make as possible. The second generation probably will have boxes with an original design.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Hopefully you will start up production of the Ecat SKLep’s early 2022. I’m constantly thinking of how to apply the quantity I ordered. Can you reveal one aspect of its characteristics:
    In the demo you have connected the output of the SKLep to an 1 ohm resistor. To use the full capacity of the SKLep, is one ohm the most optimal resistance leading to the highest energy output of a single SKL?
    Thank you if you can answer.
    A healthy and prosperous 2022!
    Kind regards, Gerard

  • Rodolfo

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Have been designed the blu/white box of the Ecat SKLep and the black box of the AI specifically for Leonardo Corporation, or you use existing standard boxes ?
    Thank you if you can answer,
    Rodolfo

  • Sergio

    Dr Rossi,
    Watching the video of the December 9th presentation on http://www.e-catworld.com I noticed that your voice has returned normal: many among your followers had been very worried after your presentation of Miami in 2019, now we can see you completely healed: so, you won also that battle.
    Thanks God,
    Happy New Year to you and your team,

  • TOUSSAINT françois

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Congratulations foe reaching the 400 000 mark !

    Some questions please, will there be an industrial version of the SLEP such as a integrated electronic card in a electric car for exemple ?

    Are you able to say why the SKLEP is limited to 100 watts ?

    Kind Regards

    Toussaint françois

  • Dear Dr Rossi
    Just a question of what happens once the million units have been ordered, will the production keep on going or will you produce in batches. The reason I ask is I have ordered a couple of Kw’s of units so I can test and prove integration into my own systems and when that has proven out I would like to start ordering 10’s of thousands of units and would like to know how fast I could ramp up.

    Thank you

  • Jean Paul

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Congratulations for reaching the stunning amount of 400000 SKLeps ordered so far. This gives evidence of how have been efficient the December 9 presentation and the video I watched on
    http://www.ecat.com
    May the New Year confirm to your team the merited success,

  • LarryG

    Dear Andrea.

    The report “Measurement of SK-Ecat performance in a series of sessions from October 20 to
    November 19 2021” by the University of Bologna has induced the following comments in different blogs:
    The study of future applications should include these starting points:
    • A complete I V characterization of the single module in order to identify the conditions of
    maximum transferred power and fill factor (see e.g. [1]);
    • A study of the uniformity of the characteristics of the individual cells constructed;
    • A study of the constancy of individual module characteristics as a function of time and
    environmental conditions;
    • A an experimentation of the interconnection of different modules (see e.g. [2]);

    Based on personal experience, all these bullets are critical to your customer for correct implementation into their electronic systems. If you do not provide it, your customers will end up having to do every single one of these themselves.

    Will you be sharing some or all of this information:

    a) before reaching 1 million orders
    b) only with customers after reaching 1 million orders.
    c) never
    d) other, please comment

  • Ron Stringer

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    I have been struggling with how many units I should order. Part of my concern is simply how unique this current buying opportunity is going to be. Ideally I would buy some now and add to them over time. However, I can foresee enormous demand building once your device becomes better known and this might make them difficult to get.
    What would you advise?
    A) Order as many as possible now in case they become difficult to get later? Or,
    B) Order as I need them, because demand will be met and there will be no shortage.
    Obviously you don’t have your crystal ball in operation yet, your best estimate will do!

    And I will take the chance now to wish you and yours a most happy and prosperous New Year! It will certainly be an interesting one.

  • Pierino S.

    Intendevo dire:collegare i 10 sklep in serie (120V), in sostituzione dei pannelli fotovoltaici.
    Sklep non soggetti ai capricci del meteo ed erogano energia 24 ore su 24!!!
    English: Is it possible to connect 10 Ecat SKLeps in series ?

    Cordiali Saluti e Auguri!
