Today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, Andrea Rossi was asked whether about the charging of the EV would be only for one EV manufacturer.

will the e-cat be able to charge any EV or will the brand now doing the test with you have exclusive rights?

The module will be fit for all,
So it appears that the charging system Rossi is developing is designed for charging batteries in any make and model of EV.
If it can be shown at the planned demonstration that an E-Cat box can deliver enough power to keep an electric vehicle moving for 12 hours, while keeping the battery throughout the drive, then I think this will demonstrate that we really will have at our disposal a far better transportation technology than anything we have previously known. The E-Cat would be something that could revolutionize the car as we know it.
Of course, Leonardo Corporation will need to be ready to deliver their products to for any of this to take place. The pressure on them will be Leonardo would become immense, because in my mind, there’s very little that is not to like about the E-Cat as an EV charger.
Which manufacturer would not want to have such a technology in their vehicles, and which consumer would opt for a plug-in EV instead of an unlimited range E-Cat-charged EV if it was available? You would no longer be paying for the electricity to charge your car, and you wouldn’t have to worry about running a charging cord to your EV at night, or go hunting for a working charging station.
And if an on-board E-Cat can charge an EV, what would be the point of building the massive car charging infrastructure that is being contemplated and planned for by businesses and governments around the world?
What would be the point of having massive batteries installed in cars if the E-Cat can keep a smaller battery fully charged? Currently bigger batteries are used to increase the range of EVs, but the bigger the battery, the heavier the car becomes, and the less room there is inside for people and cargo. This in turn reduces the life of tires and car suspensions, and increases wear and tear on roads, bridges and even parking garages significantly, Smaller batteries would be much more desirable as they would make EVs lighter and cheaper.
I think there would be an increased interest in converting internal combustion cars to EVs if there was an E-Cat option. Currently converting an ICE car to EV costs in the range of around $8000-$20000. I think the allure of never having to pay for fuel again, and having a much greener vehicle would be very strong, even if there were significant up-front costs involved.
There will obviously be significant consequences if E-Cat EVs become popular. I think people would drive a lot more if the cost of fuel was eliminated, which could mean more traffic and wear and tear on highways and bridges. However, we can be certain that governments would quickly step in to make sure that fuel tax revenue was replaced with something else. I would expect that if E-Cat powered cars took off, before very long mileage taxation systems would be introduced to ensure that government coffers do not become depleted.
If Rossi can show a convincing EV demonstration this year, the whole world of transportation could be revolutionized.
