This Q&A from the Journal of Nuclear Physics today brings up an interesting question about whether the E-Cats consume any fuel at all.

did I understand correctly that, according to the theory, neither SKL nor SKLed need to be refilled, but the durability of the components does not allow unlimited operation?

For many years, Andrea Rossi stated that the early E-Cats would require refueling every six months. Now the Ecat.com website provides this information about the SKLed: “The operational lifetime of the lamp is up to 100,000 hours, meaning about ten years of uninterrupted, continuous use.”
Rossi has posted recently that recharging of E-Cats will be done by Leonardo Corporation after an unspecified period of time, but did not explain how that will take place, or what would be involved in recharging.
While his comment is vague, Rossi’s response today gives an indication that there is some degradation of materials over time (which is true with any technology) but not actual consumption of fuel that needs to be replaced.
