How does the E-Cat SKLed lamp work? There has been quite a bit of speculation about it with one perspective being that there isn’t actually a normal LED involved, rather the light of the E-Cat reactor itself providing the illumination. Andrea Rossi sometimes has declined to answer questions about the source of the light, at other times he has said there is a specially made LED inside the lamp.
Below is a comment from the Journal of Nuclear Physics with a hypothesis about how the SKLed works, along with a one-word response from Rossi. I know that there is not much to go on here, but maybe it can put us on the right track in understanding the setup.

Dear Dr Rossi,
As I understand it, the E-Cat SKLed has two novel components. The first is a small E-Cat reactor system that outputs more electrical energy than is required to maintain its operation. The second is an LED array that is driven by the electrical output of the E-Cat reactor. Since the E-Cat SKLed light as a whole dissipates very little heat both the E-Cat reactor and the LED array are highly efficient from an energy standpoint. With a 4 watt input the E-Cat SKLed outputs 10000 lumens of white light while dissipating about 2 watts of heat. I know that the lamp’s performance is specified in lumens, but a white light of 10000 lumens has a power of at least 14 watts (10000/683).
Is my understanding correct?

I suppose that most people outside the E-Cat enthusiast community won’t care much how it works, just that it does work. We still don’t have any reports from users or testers of the SKLed, but hopefully that won’t be too far away now.
