The last time I had asked Andrea Rossi about the number of Ecat SKLep preorders he responded they were ‘close to 800000’. That was February 17th. Today, (Feb 26th) on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, reader LarryG wrote “please confirm previous posts that you have still have less than 800K orders”.

yes, we reached the orders for 800000 units,
It looks like orders are inching up, but not nearly as rapidly as they were earlier in the year. Still, Rossi does seem to think that he will hit the target. Here’s another Q&A from today:

Do you think the distribution of the Ecat SKLep will start during the 2022 year ?

I had asked a couple of days ago if he would start manufacturing SKLeps before the 1 million target was reached, in anticipation of hitting the goal later. His response was “maybe”.
We know next to nothing about what is going on behind the scenes. I really don’t think anyone is getting too excited at this point, that can only change when we get verification that the SKLeps are getting into people’s hands and are working well.
