I agree. I did once design embedded control systems. The cost to Rossi
would be around $10, especially in the 1m unit pricing. Electronics
today is done for almost nothing. Retail price can however be 1,000s of
time higher, especially if you must buy that failed controller from a
I'm starting to form a mental picture of the home E-Cat, especially
after Rossi called the replaceable fuel module a "Energy Stick" and said
replacing them was not replacing the ink cartridge in a ball point pen.
What I also found interesting was Rossi saying the E-Cat only used
picograms of H2 and that the home E-Cat had a system to recycle the H2
so there were no H2 cartridges to replace.
Then there was the bit that the RFG caused the Coulomb barrier to work
for and not against the reaction. Here I note DFG claim not to use a RFG.

He's going to manufacture furnaces for the home for $500 each.
Sure he is, like I really believe that...
On the contrary, it is quite believable. The device is only 10 kW,
which is not enough to heat an entire house. It sounds like a
stand-alone device, like a large baseboard electric room heater, or a
kerosene heater. A 240 V 5 kW baseboard heater costs $250, so that's
right at the same price point. 12 kW kerosene heaters cost $150 to $250.
A small gas furnace designed for central heating, with remote
thermostatic controls and whatnot costs $800 to $1000.
