Essential facts about the E-cat

This may be a bit presumptuous of me, as well as premature.  So, I fiddled around with the title of this post.  Rather than to tell everybody else who reads this, I will just say it for myself.  Therefore, the question is not what you should know about it, but what I think I should know about it.  If it matches what you think, then perhaps you can benefit from it too. Also, I am learning new things all the time.  Not everyone will agree on this list.  It is my list, perhaps you, as the reader, may want your own list.

Here's the list, in no particular order.  It reflects what I think are important points about it.
  • The reaction is claimed to be self sustaining.
  • The reaction is claimed to produce heat, but not electricity.
  • It has been examined by qualified people.  
  • Not everyone is impressed with the credentials of those who have seen it.
  • Not everyone who has seen it is convinced.
  • Qualified people who have seen it have not denounced it as a fraud.
  • Therefore, it is still controversial.
  • The science about it is not established, but there are theories.
  • At least one who has posited a theory is well qualified.  The theory has insufficient laboratory experimental data which can verify the theory.
  • The market potential of the device, assuming that it works, does not appear to be that great, in my opinion.
  • Even though the market potential, assuming that it produces as it is claimed, is not great, it still would be a great achievement.
  • Nothing that I know of would be a roadblock to it having a greater success potential than it would seem to be the case at the moment.  This would assume the potential of great improvements to the device.
This post may not be music to the ears of E-cat supporters.  This is not to say that I think that it isn't any good.  I do think something is missing.  I also think the missing parts can be filled in.  I have no idea of when that may occur, but I would hope that it happens sooner, rather than later.

I hope this is not a disappointment to some, but that is how it seems to me, in my honest opinion.
