    Dear Dr. Rossi.

    Just to make your answer to Jan Srajer clear for me – for an ordered single Ecat with AC-output will there be

    1.) an inverter within the same housing as the Ecat (one device with only AC-output) or
    2.) a separate inverter as a second device in a separate housing with the possibility (not a must) to be connected to the DC-output of the Ecat?

    Best regards, Martin

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    just to make it clear:

    “Jan Srajer:
    Yes, it is so only for single Ecat SKLeps. For assemblies the inverter is not included, but we will give all the necessary instructions to the Clients just before the delivery,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.”

    Best regards, Martin

  • Pat

    Dear Andrea:
    Based on your answer to Jan Srajer:
    Single Ecat SKLep will be delivered with its inverter incorporated to generate AC, but for assemblies the customer will have to provide the inverter with your assistance. Correct ?
    Regards,
    Pat

    Mr. Rossi
    When selecting: E-CatSKLep to produce AC energy”: does this mean that there is an inverter inside the E-CatSKLep ?
    Does it mean that the E-CatSKLep produces AC energy without an external inverter ?

    Warm Regards Jan Šrajer

    Dear Andrea,

    Several people are wondering about your “I foresee a big surprise” reply earlier.
    Is it possible for you to reveal just a little bit more about this upcoming surprise?

    Kind regards,
    Harold
    Ps. I am still convinced we are with the SKLEP at the dawn of a Copernican revolution regarding energy production!

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Another SKLep application.

    Consider a garage tow truck equipped with SKLep units. Not only to charge an onboard battery but to charge stranded Electric Veicle (EV) cars that run out of energy. A Tesla charging station usually as a charging rate of 60 kW to 125 kW. This corresponds to an effective rate of about 300 mph to 1,000 mph of range increase. The battery charges faster when it is depleted than when it is full. So, the tow truck/charging vehicle need only charge enough to get the EV to the next charging station. Similar to an internal combustion engine (ICE) car. One only needs to add a gallon of gasoline to get the vehicle to the next gas station.

    So, a 6o kW charge capacity might require 600 or so SKLep units. Thoughts?

  • Jan Šrajer

    Mr. Rossi
    One question please. For output configuration of more than one E-CatSKLep, is one suitable inverter enough? Is it enough to consider only the output power and the output AC voltage and frequency and possible input voltage for inverter?

    Warm Regards J.Šrajer

    Steven Nicholes Karels:
    Yes, but we prefer keep a reserve.

    In past responses, you said that there is a big surprise that is coming, and that you, more or less, know when that big surprise will be revealed to the public. Can you please tell us when the big surprise will be revealed to the public?

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I had some time, so I examined the Bologna experiment on the SKLep. Recall the measure voltage drop across the load resistor was 11.7V. The cable resistance was 0.4 Ohms. The Load resistance was 1.0 Ohm +/- 0.2 Ohms.

    Using V = I * R and P = E * I, I come up with the following output power conditions:

    Load Resistance:
    Nominal: 1.0 Ohms
    Minimum: 0.8 Ohms
    Maximum: 1.2 Ohms

    Current Flow:
    Nominal: 11.7 Amps
    Minimal: 14.625 Amps
    Maximum: 9.75 Amps

    Total Resistance Presented to the SKLep:
    Nominal: 1.4 Ohms
    Minimal: 1.2 Ohms
    Maximum: 1.6 Ohms

    Voltage Output at the SKLep:
    Nominal: 16.38 Volts
    Minimal: 17.55 Volts
    Maximum: 15.60 Volts

    Power Output of the SKLep:
    Nominal: 192 Watts
    Minimal: 256 Watts
    Maximum: 152 Watts

    Question: The advertisement for the SKLep indicates a maximum output of 100W. Are the above results typical for the production unit?

    Hello and good luck this e-cat year!
    A question aside:
    Does the D in e-catskled stand for deuterium?

    Dear Rossi
    We would like to replace a continuous methane-based heat generator with a more economical and ecological source. The average power is about 6 MW with a production of about 50 million kWh per year and a consumption of about 5 million cubic meters of methane per year. It seems difficult to achieve this with 60,000 ECAT-SKlep modules. What do you recommend: ECAT-SK or ECAT-SKlep or is it premature for now to think of a solution of this type?
    Cordial greetings

  • Andrea Rossi

    Simon Jonasson:
    1. yes
    2. yes
    3. yes
    4. n.a.
    5. no
    6. no
    Anyway: the first thing to to if the Ecat doesn’t work is to examine the reason with our assistance: if it has not been broken, surely a reparation is possible.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Simon Jonasson

    Hi Andrea,

    Consider the following scenario.
    The warranty period has expired and the sklep fails shortly after.

    1. Is the ecat of any use to you or Leonardo Corp?
    2. Can the ecat be returned to you for recycling?
    3. If 2 is true, Can we have a rebate for a new unit once it has been returned?
    4. If 2 is false, how to recycle it?
    5. Are you concerned about material degradation in the core components of the sklep?
    6. Are you concerned about failure in electronic components in the sklep or AI controller?

    My concern is that the controller may fail faster than the sklep itself, due to more electronic components. Either way, I would like to see that it would be possible to buy spare parts, for instance a new controller if needed.

    Looking forward to an interesting ecat year.
    Kind regards,
    Simon

    Alfonso David Troisi Lopez:
    It is possible to get a higher output, just assembling in series and parallels the units we are selling.
    About the presentation, its efficiency shows beyond any possible doubt it has been made well. Obviously anything in this world can be made better than it is, but thanks to that presentation, as it has been done, we received more than 600000 pre-orders ( more than 140 million $ worth ) in 30 days, albeit malicious comments have been made now and again by trolls and naysayers. This is a fact. The scope of the demo was not to be beautiful, it was to be convincing, and the number of the pre-orders speaks for it enough to me.
    This said, I respect the opinions of anybody, especially the negative opinions made by persons in good faith, like you and many others.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Alfonso David Troisi Lopez

    Dear mr. Rossi,

    I’m excited to see the orders flowing. The presentation has done its job, even though I’m among those that think the presentation should have been done differently.
    Some weeks ago you said that in the future you would scale up the ECAT SKLEP to higher output (maybe 1 kw or more). Do you have an idea of the size of the new product? Is it going to change much?
    Just a curiosity.

    God Bless all of you with joy and peace

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    The SKLEP turns on automatically when it is connected to empty batteries. Does this mean it will also automatically trickle charge the batteries when they lose their charge over time?

    Success,

    Hello Lib, For most homes, heating is the largest power drain. So, one of the most simple applications would be to run a space heater from the e-cat using a 12 V inverter such as https://www.amazon.com/WZRELB-Reliable-Power-Inverter-Display/dp/B0154BQFDU?th=1 for a 750 W heater you would need a 900 W e-cat to allow for inverter losses. If you live in a colder climate you could use two of them located strategically in the house.

    Warm regards,
    Chuck Davis

    In a recent response to another poster, you said that you “foresee a big surprise.” Do you know when this big surprise will be disclosed to the public?

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    When you get the chance, it would be nice if you could define the following:

    1. The mechanical mounting design – how do we securely hold the SKLep to a side of an enclosure? mounting hole pattern and hole sizes?
    2. The electrical connection for the input to the SKLep – connector type, pin assignments, mating connector?
    3. The electrical connection for the output of the SKLep – same as above.
    4. The interface between the Controller and each SKLep – at least a general discussion — single cable, multiple cables? Nothing proprietary.
    5. Any interface between the Controller and the outside world? – protocol, rates, etc.

  • Paolo Bernasconi

    Dear Dr Rossi

    1) As you wrote some days ago the SKLep patent is still pending. I don’t know how patent process work, but do you know more or less when the patent will be accepted and so when you could potentially start the production ?
    2) What is the ordering level today (your last update was 500Kpcs) ?
    3) You told me that SKLep module can be connected in series/parallel to create a different power level, however this means that your product is not designed for end customer but for companies that will integrate them in a final product (for example in a 3KW standard AC generator). Do you think to offer also products for houses directly ?

    Thanks

  • Aleksei Savchenko

    Dear Andrea,
    Looking from your website as well as numerous questions and answers it is becoming clear that ECat SKLep can vary input and output electricity from AC to DC and back for our request. If I clearly understand the scheme is the following: DC-Controller-SKLep-Controller-DC. If we need AC from input or output you only add transformer remaining the price the same, in spite of more complex system. In this regard, a natural question arises. It deals not only with increasing the price when using a more complicated AC system, but adding switches at the input and output so that the DC and AC voltage input and output can be varied as needed in the same device. This is especially important for poor buyers ordered only several devices, which are the majority in the world as well as in my country, and who live in small apartments. This SKLep modification, even if somewhat more expensive, will be in demand by the population of most countries that do not belong to the gold billion.
    Best regards,
    Aleksei

    Dear Andrea,

    Regarding your current priorities, is production for at least one million per month (increasing by each month) possible? It seems to me that without a planet to live on all the other concerns are not priority.
    = = = = = = = = =
    Increasing output is merely a question of reinvesting the cash flows generated from current production into additional production facilities.

    So long as sufficient cash flows are generated (and with the production technology apparently already established) it is not complicated to build additional capacity in response to demand.

    Rodney.

  • Richard Wells

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Today, you answered ‘yes’ to the question, “Have you already organized the production system to make 100000 units per month ?”, posed by Hans.

    I suggest that the present rate of pre orders as indicated by yourself, ones of the order of one million a month, ideally require a manufacturing capability of the same order.

    Do you anticipate that is manageable in a reasonable period?

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    I ordered my SKLeps from Italy and I should be among the first to receive them, because my pre-order was done many, many years ago.
    My question:
    1 – Will they be shipped from you (USA) or from one of your resellers in Europe?
    2 – In the latter case, will the price remain the same ($ 249 / each)?

    Best Regards,
    Italo R.
