Andrea Rossi is very busy with the plan to launch domestic e-cat units next year. There is so much speculation about the e-cat unit for home use. Some people think that it is going to be very helpful for homeowners as the home-based nickel-hydrogen reactor will definitely bring a positive change especially in electric bills. We are referring to a large amount of savings that a domestic e-cat can offer. Safety certification of the unit, on the other hand, is still pending. But Rossi and his associates are working hard to get the Low Energy Nuclear Reactions device certified.
The Italian inventor recently provided significant information with regards to certification of the e-cat fusor for a regular household. An e-cat follower asked Rossin on his official blog The Journal of Nuclear Physics about the process of recharging the e-cat fuel. Rossi responded right away and stated that a certified operator is required to do the task. This revelation is contrary to what Rossi mentioned in his previous posts. He once said that the consumer could replace their own fuel cartridges because it does not follow daunting task. It seems to appear that the certificators are not agreeable to this and thus the need to get a certified operator. Rossi admitted it but added that it was before the certification process.
Rossi told Free Energy Systems in his recent interview that the certificators suggested that recharging of the domestic e-cat fuel would be done by an approved contractor. Consumers are therefore no longer allowed to perform the process. This would also mean that they need to spend extra money for service calls, which is apparently high. Rossi is aware about this concern however there is nothing else he can but to allow it if he wants to launch his device as soon as possible. What bothers most of the e-cat followers here is the additional cost of the home e-cat.
If Rossi claims that recharging of e-cat is simple and that it is like refilling an empty pen, then it should not be a problem to most users of the home e-cat. However, the certificators are looking at the safety of the consumers. The top concern is perhaps the possible exposure to toxic nickel powder. If so, then it is understandable but Rossi it should not be a problem to consumers once the device is available. It is additional cost to ask a contractor to recharge the e-cat fuel twice a year.
As we all know, anyone who pumps gasoline into a car is actually a risk. There is a big chance to risking exposure to toxic substance but it looks like it is the concern of most places. Rossi does not give further details about the certification process. This recent news is already helpful though it is important to get additional information from Rossi himself. Hopefully Rossi will give us an official statement and enlighten about this concern in order for us to fully understand the need for a certified operator. After all, the consumers have the right to information on the things that they buy.
Rossi said that he is going to publish important information behind his e-cat invention within the month of September this year. It would be nice if he can share with us the process of the certification too aside from the theory behind the e-cat reactor operation. Otherwise, many consumers will get disappointed with Rossi and it could probably affect the sales and production of domestic e-cat. It could mean that the amount of the e-cat would be more than what we hoped for and this is not a good strategy for a new and controversial LENR technology.
