    Dear Andrea,

    after the demo you said the preorder increase was “very strong”.

    Assuming this rate continues in the next months, can you tell us by when the one million (equivalent) unit target will be reached ?

    Best Regards,
    Riccardo

  • Dear Andrea Rossi,
    all our support for your great work.

    I would like to know if the models (options available in the pre orders page) with input/output AC (alternate current) will have:
    – 220V AC input
    – 220V AC output
    without the need to buy additional external converters / transformators.

    I hope the answer has not already been given.
    Thanks.

  • Mario

    Good day Dr Rossi
    Do you plan to sell close box (100w – 1KW) with a double input power DC (12-24v) and AC 220v and a double output power DC (12-24v) and AC 220v ?. In this way they are more
    suitable for all the applications.
    Thank you : Mario

    Prof:
    I notice you assumed very conservatively 1 Wh/h the amount of energy produced by the Ecat to supply that light !

    Dr Rossi,
    Watching the video on youtube
    https://youtu.be/B0JBPXcTN8M
    I calculated by a chronometer that the Amperage is 0.000 A for about 10″ and 0.001 for about 3/10 of second, while the Voltage is 10 V
    This makes the Wattage
    W = 0.00003
    and consequently the
    COP = 33,333 ( over 33 thousand )
    Can you confirm ?
    Best,
    Prof

    Andrea,
    When I view your demonstration I see a product that can be exploited very easily without much effort. That is a substitute for illuminating sources that now are in use throughout the world and employ billions of dollars to be implemented. Find a Chinese manufacturer, a design packaging engineering firm and a marketing company as soon as you can and let the rest of the industry try to catch up. The low or no cost of the power usage would assure you of a profit opportunity like no other.
    Business regards.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If an ecat that is configured for 120v AC iniput and output is plugged into an outlet,

    1. Does the load need to be plugged in to the ecat?
    2. Can the load be plugged into any other outlet on the circuit?
    3. Can the load be plugged into any other circuit on the same leg (phase) in the house?

    Thank You,

    Bob Fast

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    In 2021, households in Germany, UK, France, Italy and Spain bought 10.4 million electric heaters (GfK data). The stock of electric heaters in households is probably several times higher. It is obvious that the potential market for your devices, just in this segment, is huge.

    Dear Andrea,

    Very nice to see the live stream, simple to understand, I sincerely hope now the 1 million SKLEP threshold will be reached soon!
    I ordered 10 SKLEP (=100 mini SKLEP) and thinking now about to have 2 operational configurations of 5 SKLEP each, connected to grid and feeding back to grid. As I understand all well this would be possible.
    Anyway once both configurations are installed in my house by a certified contractor, can I myself disconnect 1 configuration and install it in another house for someone who is in “power-trouble” (=meaning can’t pay the bills)? Or is always a certified contractor needed?
    What would you advice?
    Thanks for answering.

    Kind regards,
    Harold

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    “Electric locomotives usually cost 20% less than diesel locomotives, their maintenance costs are 25-35% lower, and cost up to 50% less to run.” Wikipedia.

    Electric locomotives require between 2 and 4 MW of power.

    With approximately a 100W/liter power density, the miniSKLep could be used for electric locomotive trains. A 4MW locomotive would require 40,000 liters of volume and would consist of about 400,000 miniSKLep units. The 40,000 liters is equivalent to 400 cubic meters.

    Boxcars have a carrying volume of about 6,000 cubic feet or about 170 cubic meters. So, the 4 MW miniSKLep units could be housed in three boxcars trailing the locomotive.

    Thoughts?

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    What is the vertical distance between stacked miniSKLep units? 3cm? So, a 10-unit stack would be 30cm?

  • Andrea Rossi

    H. Shilling:
    Yes, and you will need, as you correctly write, the help of a certified contractor,

  • H.Schilling

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    would it be possible to connect 10 SKLep ecat to the wiring of my house, installed by a specialist, in a way that if all devices need less than 1 kW I don’t pull power from the grid and if my devices need more than 1 kW the difference above 1000 Watt is pulled from the grid? (without battery!!)

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If a Stack of miniSKLep is delivered. Assuming that all modules within the Stack are in a parallel configuration — the Stack outputs 12 VDC and N times 10 W of power. When one of the miniSKLep module fails, what will be the output of the stack:

    1. zero – entire Stack is in failure mode; OR
    2. output of 12 VDC, power of (N-1) times 10W?

    Bob Fast:
    I am not sure I understood correctly your questions; if you are asking if you can plug yo a multiple outlet both the Ecat and a load, or 2 Ecats, the answer is yes. Otherwise, please rephrase.

    Dr Rossi,
    Could combinations of the Ecat Mini SKLep be useful for street and domestic illumination ?

  • Bob Fast

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    I believe you have stated that the most efficient use of your Ecat is to keep it at maximum load 24hrs/day. If this is the case, it would also insure the quickest payoff of the initial investment. Since I currently don’t have a battery to continuously charge, I have determined that my home draws at least 200 watts 24 hours/day. The 200 watts is not from a single load, but from multiple loads including lights and motors in my home. If I were to purchase 2 100 watt skleps that are both 120V AC input and output:

    1. Would it be possible to plug each one into an outlet (one on each leg)?
    2. Can an outlet function as both line and load?

    If the answer to question 2 is “yes”, I believe it would make your product extremely easy to market. Most homes do not have an integrated battery backup system and don’t have many loads that are continuous. I am currently paying about $.12/kwh. My electric savings would be about $105/yr per 100 watt sklep running full time, so the payoff time would be about 2.5 years.

    Thank You,
    Bob Fast

    Dear Dr. Rossi.

    I wonder, how flexible an installation of 10 Mini-SKLeps can be handled by the end user.

    If I order 10 Minis can I

    1.) let them produce 100W at 12 V (all 10 parallel in one stack)

    2.) if my applicattion changes change my Mini-Stack to 100W at 24V (2 stacks in series with 5 Minis in parallel each)

    3.) later split the 10 Minis to two applications with 50W at 12V (two stacks with 5 Minis parallel each at different locations)

    4.) Can I as the enduser change between the scenarios 1, 2 and 3 myself, using the same 10 Minis?

    Best Regards, MaBi

  • Maico

    Dear Dr. Rossi

    if I understand correctly, the Voltage and current that powers the bulb is not known but we know receives 5W.

    1) is this correct?

    2) Is the bulb a standard 55W H4?

    2) Assuming that the bulb is a 55W H4, is it correct to assume that it receives voltage and current for only 5W?

    3) Would it be possible to set a voltage on the Mini Sklep output such that the current varies until the Mini SkLep 10W is delivered? (I guess yes being within its technical specifications)

    4) if we set the voltage so that 12W (out of specification) were delivered what would happen ?:

    4a) would the mini SKLep continue to work delivering only 10W?

    4b) Would the Mini SkLep shut down as it would work outside the technical specifications?

    Best Regards

    Maico

  • Mario

    good morning Dr. Rossi
    Is it possible for the user to regulate (knob) the DC input voltage (24-28v) and the output voltage (24-28v) with the MiniSKlep of 100w and 1000w ? Can i charge batteries of different voltages?
    Thank you : Mario

  • Darko

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    It is reported that the volume of electric heater sales in the German market has jumped by 76 percent. Are you going to advertise your products in German newspapers?
    Best regards,

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    On the miniSKLep units, can?

    1. They be reconfigured by the user after delivery (adding removing modules)? Or is it defined by how they were manufactured (like a sealed unit)?
    2. If the miniSKLep modules are assembled so they are electrically in parallel with each other, then they must electrically inter-connect. If rotating one module compared to the previous module, it might be possible to align the contacts so one position supports a parallel electrical connection while rotating it supports a serial electrical connection
    3. If each module has two (or more) captive screws on one side and the same number of captive mating nuts on the other side, then users could screw any number of miniSKLep modules together. Input and output wires would need to be accessible from the sides.
    4. If the user can screw together modules, then a base mount would be needed to accept the first miniSKLep module. The base mount would screw into a support plate or side. Likewise, there should be a Cap unit to end the stacked configuration.
    5. There is probably a practical limit on the number of miniSKLep units that can be stacked (structural or current limitation). What is that number?

    Thoughts?

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    What a magnificence the video on Youtu.be !
    I love the simplicity of the circuit, very easy to understand. The electric COP 25000 is of paramount importance.
    Question: should the power of the lamp be 1 W, instead of 5, the COP would be 5000 ?
    Godspeed,
    Joel

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If we have two miniSKLeps connected in parallel and one stacked on the other, if we rotate one of them, are they now connected in series?
