  • Dear Andrea, Wilfried Babelotzky’s idea is really smart, you could only sell very long lasting (10 years) 12V 1W pre-activated ECAT batteries and let users assemble them as they wish, as is now the case with 18650 lithium batteries. Just with a similar format with poles at both ends. You would no longer have to worry about setting up systems with many kW or indicating DC-AC converters widely available on the market.

    Dear Andrea,

    I suggest you to develop a 1 W nano ECAT SKLep SSM, without switch and without housing. It should be maintenance-free, encapsulated, have only one input and output, be fixed at 5V and always switched on, so that it is disposed of after 10 to 15 years. A highly automated, low-tolerance production process was to be used to achieve the longest possible service life. Designs that then assemble very many nano ECATs in further automated manufacturing should have fault-tolerant circuits in which individual ECATs that fail do not cause damage.
    This would make scalable applicability possible, from smartphones to space rockets. The form factor I envision is a AAAA battery.

    Best regards
    Wilfried

    The hypothesized lifespan is referred to operational time with a load connected,

  • Photonblaster

    Dear Dr. Rossi
    You posted that the ECAT Mini SSM will have a on/off switch. Assuming my recollection is correct, then if one leaves the module with this switch in the “on” position, but there is no load attached to the module (open circuit at output), does this reduce the operational life of the module?

    Worded differently to be sure I get my question across correctly, the operational lifetime estimate is for the switch in the on position and a load of any size other than infinite (open circuit) attached.

    Dr. Rossi,
    Some stray thoughts with respect to an on-off switch being built into the Mini SKlep SSM:

    – A switch per SSM disrupts scalability. Assemblies of SSMs would be problematic to build and to operate.
    – Mechanical switches have a higher failure rate than most solid state components.
    – Mechanical switches are vulnerable to environmental degradation.
    – Individual solar cells within solar panels don’t have switches, although Solar Panels often do have disconnect switches.
    – Common alkaline and Lithium batteries don’t have built-in switches.
    – Car Lead Acid batteries don’t have switches.
    – Car alternators don’t have built-in switches.
    – If a power switch is required to differentiate between current-draw and non-current-draw situations there may be solid state circuits that can achieve that.

    Food for thought, Best Wishes,
    WaltC

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    about the comment of Lars Olov. He is right.
    Leonardo should offer different sizes of ecat. not just 10W and 100W, but also 500W, 1KW, 2KW, 2.5KW..each in a proper box. Just plug and play.
    Best regards

    @Joe
    Dr. Rossi had said that the 24/7 streaming of the Mini Sklep SSM would be activated in the first days of February with the possibility of bringing it forward to the end of January and that everything was already ready.

    @ Dear Dr. Rossi,
    We are all eager to see this latest evolution of the MiniSKLep with the hope that its goal will soon be reached and production and delivery can finally start.

    We estimate 100000 hours, theoretically the statistic projections do not forbid a factor 2, but I think it is impossible to consider it more than just a hypothesys that can absolutely be wrong. I wouldn’t take it in consideration now.

    Dear Andrea ,

    I want to connect 100 W. to an inverter, but this should be with output 120 V.DC. (for putting on the net)
    Can I order this 100 W. – 120 V.DC output in 1 piece ?
    Or do I have to order 10 x SKLep 10 W. and place them myself in parallel for reaching 120 V.DC. ?
    Or is that not possible?

    When this 100 W.-120 V.DC Works , i can multipli to 300 W. with placing 3 x 100 W. In series (= 360 V.DC and the best Voltage input for an inverter)
    And this x 2 or 3 for reaching 600 or 900 W.DC.

    Does anyone else have something similar in mind ?
    And how you will do it ?

  • Martin

    Wilfried Babelotzky says :
    If it is only an estimate and not a shutdown, wouldn’t factor 2 be statistically expectable?

    Your answer :
    I think so

    What do you mean with that factor 2 ?
    Do you mean it will probably 200.000 h. instead of 100.000 h. ?

    1- We will disclose only the reaching of the necessary target, because many times we receive pre-orders that eventually we will have to cancel because during the vetting we discover that the Buyers do not have the corresponding funds, or because of other reasons.
    2- I am not able to answer the issues raised in the other part of your comment.

  • Maico

    Dear Dr Rossi

    Can you confirm that the Mini SKlep SSM while not consuming anything at the input ( SSM ) is still able to generate 10W at the output?

    Regards Maico

  • Andrea Rossi

    SALM Kurt:
    All the pre-orders have been registered. If you made orders before we started the pre-orders collection for the Ecat SKLep, you must remake the pre-order, conserving the priority date for the delivery, as we already said. You should send the new pre-order form you can find here:
    http://www.ecat.com
    specifying the date of your original order, to make for us easier the control.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Reviewing current literature on Commercial Aviation jet engines, it appears that there is a preference to ultra-high bypass ducted turbine and unducted turbine or prop engines, primarily to reduce fuel consumption. Current designs will support Mach 0.8 and 0.85 performance.

    The eCat SKLep technology might be well positioned to support these two approaches, where the fuel-burning engine is replaced with electric motors powered by a combination of battery and SKLep power sources.

    The airline aircraft energy usage is typically: maximum power for take-off; then reduced power for the climb to altitude; then low power while cruising at altitude; then descent also using lower power; with enough energy reserve for a miss-approach climb and reattempted landing (plus usually a 45-minute reserve is usually required).

    I suggest that the optimum combination is sufficient battery capacity to accommodate take-off and landing with a 45-minute reserve, coupled with a sufficient SKLep capacity to completely recharge the battery system during lower consumption portions of the flight.

    In the rare case where there is little or no cruise at altitude time, then the aircraft could be recharged at the Gate by the SKLep and supplemented by ground electrical power (an aircraft supercharger). This would be done during the passenger unloading, cleaning of the interior, and passenger reloading times.

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    In your response to Maico, it appears you said that the gridless SKLep module has a mechanical switch on the side of the SKLep to turn it on or off but no control line or contacts to activate or deactivate the SKLep module.

    1. Please verify or correct.
    2. If true, then that suggests that the SKLep cannot be remotely turned on or off. If so, then the SKLep, once activated will burn through the 100,000 hour operating time more quickly than it would be if remotely turned on and off. Please comment on this.

    Sehr geeherter Herr Dr.Rossi.
    Wie kann ich meine alten Bestellungen nachsehen die innzwischen schon viele Jahre zurück
    liegen? ich habe langsam den überblick verloren! ( bin inzwischen auch Ausgewandert!)
    Viele Grüsse Kurti

    Dear Dr. Rossi. How can I look up my old orders that are now many years old? I’ve slowly lost track! (I’ve also emigrated in the meantime!) Many greetings, Kurti

  • Dear Dr. Rossi,
    we, as in our possibilities, have tried to sustain the ecat since many years.
    Two questions, the second one more complex and delicate, and I’ll expand it.
    1. In my knowledge in december 22 there were 800000 preorder placed. Are we over now the 900000 or so, or more?
    2. The qestion is: have you ever had the suspect that some kind of external organization has ever infiltrate the working group? The posticipation of the public release, let me humbly say, seem to corrispond to some not so identifiable tactics, even not known to you Andrea (I declare that I have personally no doubt in the reality of the technology/ecat, and in your full dedition to it).

    Further considerations and explanation:
    We have seen in the past many suspect, if not verified, intromissions of secret services in the “nation security” posed by the energy production.
    I refer to possibily the Pons-Fleischmann experiment, the more exotic Ettore Majorana machine, and so on, also non-energy related but world-changing ideas.
    The tactic is well known, or a direct sabotage of the tecniques, or a posticipation infinite of the relase to the masses, due to a sequence of reasons all plausible, that end in disaffection and delusion of the enthusiasts followers, (the well known DDT, decoy, deceive and trash), that we have seen in many non energy related project (frequently humanitarian or “change the world”-like organizations).

    If the device will be released to the masses, it WILL be a very significant sign of a real change in the ruling structure of your world. Let’s hope.

    Please some your considerations about.

  • Claudio Varotto

    Good morning Dr. Rossi
    The question posed by Maico in my opinion is of fundamental importance in the design of a versatile configuration that produces electricity.
    Maico in the third point of the post asks if there are contacts that can be managed externally to the module: that aspect is basic since replacing the switch included in the module precisely with 2 contacts that can be managed by relay according to the particular needs of the user would help to make the various designs much more flexible.
    Thank you for your attention and kind regards.

    Dear Andrea: Are you getting any pressure from the elite power brokers of the world to HOLD UP your technology until such time as they can impose more stringent tyranny on the public? Perhaps after robots are able to replace most human jobs? Or perhaps after the Central Bank Digital currencies control all money? The holdup does seem unnecessary and arbitrary.

  • Maico

    Dear Dr Rossi

    if I understand correctly the Mini SKLep SSM has no connection to the Network.
    Two questions if I may:

    1) Is switching on and off via a switch?

    2) If yes, is the switch positioned on the Mini SKlep SSM?

    3) or are there 2 contacts that must be closed from the outside thus successfully piloting an SSM MiniSklep array via an external customer electronics?

    To All,

    Dear Andrea,
    I am happy to hear that the development of the E-CatSKL SSM 10 Wh/h is going well.
    Most of your early orders for the grid version are from non commersial, enthusiast costumers that all have their individual ideas for what purposes they want to use the product.

    The grid 100Wh/h version was originally offered in 4 versions: DCin-DCout, DCin-ACout, ACin-DCout, ACin-ACout. Now there is no need for an input and the costumer has to take care of the DC-output himself/herself.
    The SSM modules can be put together in hundreds of ways. In order for your support team not to drown in tens of thousands of costumer questions it would be easier to offer just a few standard versions. Enthusiast costumers are price sensitive and many want to convert to an AC-output. The cheapest standard inverters have 12 V DC input and a couple of hundred to a couple of thousand Watts AC output. My suggestion is to include these 4 stacked versions:
    100 Wh/h 12 volt DC output (10 units put together in a stack with one DC output)
    200 Wh/h 12 volt DC output (20 units put together in a stack with one DC output)
    1000 Wh/h 12 volt DC output (100 units put together in a stack with one DC output)
    2000 Wh/h 12 volt DC output (200 units put together in a stack with one DC output)

    and of course individual 10 Wh/h units that the costumer can put together as wished but with limited technical support.

    When you put the 10Wh/h units in parallel the current will be big so by offering stacked versions with appropriate connection poles it will be easier for the costumer to connect to an inverter.

    Please take the above into consideration when you will update your orderform and change of order form.
    I myself have ordered two grid 100 Wh/h Dcin-DCout, but would if possible like to change to one 200Wh/h SSM 20-stacked version with 12 V DC output.

    Best regards,
    Karl-Henrik Malmqvist, Sweden

  • Wilfried Babelotzky

    Dear Andrea,

    1) Is the 100,000 operating hours for the ECAT an estimate or a technical limit beyond which the ECAT switches off?

    2) If it is only an estimate and not a shutdown, wouldn’t factor 2 be statistically expectable?

    3) If it is a shutdown, do you reserve the right to deactivate this shutdown at a later date?

    It would be nice if you can/are allowed to answer.

    Continued success and best regards
    Wilfried

  • Simon

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    i suggest to make it the other way round.
    You change all orders to SSM-ecat and those who want to have the gridbound ecat should write you.
    I guess 99% want the SSM-ecat anyways.

    Motu:
    To convert a pre-order to the SSM version you can send a conversion order here:
    info@leonardocorp1996.com
    Somebody already did it, but I suggest to wait that we publish its order form, which is premature.
    The price will be the same.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Motu

    Dearest Andrea,

    In response to the questions about grid vs ssm versions you reply “many pre-orders have not been changed, means there is a demand for both types.”

    I don’t know how to do this, and in fact on the pre order form there currently is no mention of the SSM version.

    So there is no way to order the SSM version, or to change an old order.

    In this case your reply seems a little odd.

    Love and Cuddles,
    Motu
