According to Andrea Rossi, the E-Cat SKLed will include the ability to dim the light. I think for many purposes, especially domestic ones, the rated maximum 10,000 lumens will be too bright, so the ability to dim the lamp would be very useful. Here are some of Rossi’s comments from the Journal of Nuclear Physics:

Thank you for your opinion, that I fully respect.
By the way: the lamp is dimmable and the consume will decrease in proportion: example, half Lumens, half consume.

1. How will a lamp owner dim the brightness of the SKLed (no dial is shown in your photo)?
2. How many levels of brightness will be available?

There is an A.I. system that regulates the lumens in function of the external light; besides, there is a manual dimmer in the back of the body. The regulation is integral, there are not steps. You can regulate any value between 0% and 100% of the 4 W of power.
So it sounds from the last comment that there is an auto-dimmming function built in, which is based on external light sources.
I would think that this ability to dim the SKLed will make it much more appealing than if you were only able to have it on in full brightness mode, and it will make the energy savings even greater for those who use the dimmer.
