Here’s an interesting exchange from the Journal of Nuclear Physics today.
Reader Dan Gulbert stated that right now the Ecat SKLep, still not available as a shipped product, is in a state of ‘superposition’, where the average person cannot tell whether it is really an amazing new energy source, or a non-working scam device. He asked whether this year would be the year where this dilemma would be resolved.

Thank you for your usual intelligent comment.
Here is the core issue:
When we will start the distribution of the Ecat SKLeps the reverse engineering will start immediately and no more secrets will exist. Only, at that point we will have the strength to compete.
Rossi’s position expressed here is one he has held for many years now. He wants to be in a position where he can mass produce his products at a price that would discourage would-be competitors to try and replicate.
My guess is that he will already be planning for product and manufacturing improvements following the delivery of the first round of SKLeps, possibly getting the costs lower than it is. If the SKLep is shown to work, I think he is absolutely right that competitors will reverse engineer, then it will be seen if he can maintain a competitive advantage.
