Here is a new Q&A on the Journal of Nuclear Physics regarding ordering and testing of Ecat SKLeps.

Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
I am one of your Clients that sent a pre-order for the Ecat SKLep.
One question: when you will communicate to me that you are ready to deliver, will it be possible to come in a facility of yours to test the apparatus I ordered before you deliver ?

Absolutely yes ! You gave me an idea: when we will start the deliveries, we will communicate here the fact that we are starting to deliver, and at that point all the buyers of the Ecat SKLep will be allowed to visit our closest center to decide if to proceed with the order or cancel it; besides, being the payment made by Paypal, every Client will have 2 months of time to be reimbursed giving back the SKLep if it did not perform as guaranteed, at the condition that it has not been broken.
If the Ecat SKLeps work well under testing, I think arrangement would be beneficial to Leonardo Corporation and to the customers as it would build confidence in the products. I don’t think it would take long for word to get out from some of these customers about how the testing went. It will be interesting to see what kind of testing will be allowed. If it doesn’t work well, then it will be to everyone’s benefit to know that fact.
Still, we don’t yet know when delivery will start, or even if it will. I asked yesterday for an update on pre-orders and Rossi responded they were close to 800000, which is no change from the last status update.
