Ecat Livestream 2022

Ecat Livestream 2022

On September 30, 2022 Leonardo Corporation published on its YouTube channel a livestream showing an LED light being powered by an Ecat MiniSKLep. The  intention is to have this stream run for at least 9000 hours, which is over 1 year. Beyond that, Leonardo Corp says they would like to have it run for the expected lifespan of an Ecat MiniSKLep, which is calculated to be 100,000 hours.

The interesting thing about this demonstration is that the light, which Leonardo CEO Andrea Rossi says is rated at 5 watts,

Here is the link to the livestream:

I was in the Leonardo lab with Andrea Rossi in Italy when the livestream was launched. I had brought with me the power supply that is being used in the livestream. I made a short “backstage” video which shows the circuit setup for the livestream, which is below:

I had also done a test prior to my visit in which I did a kind of calibration to show that the power supply was measuring accurately. Here is a video of that test:


I don’t have any doubt about the Ecat. What is being shown in the livestream video is just what I witnessed. It has been operating as shown since I was in the lab. I believe it really is the revolutionary technology that it is claimed to be.

Whether Leonardo succeeds commercially remains to be seen. Andrea Rossi repeated to me his goal to reach the 1 million preorders, which he believes is a requirement to have the funds to both develop commercially and be in a position to defend Leonardo’s intellectual property.

Pre-orders for Ecats can be placed here.
