Judging from the experts comments here, and even on ECW, this report has no scientific value
The Quark-X/Me356 arrangement cannot be replicated - but it doesn't mean, it cannot be duplicated. Nobody did try to push corona discharge into mixture of nickel and LiAlH4 - or whatever else will remain from it - at high temperatures and it just seems for me, everyone of LENR community is dancing around this experimental arrangement like around newly established taboo for more than year already. Why? Because it's the experimental arrangement, which actually works?
why a device with a COP of 22,000 requires any input of electricity at all? Why not simply generate electricity with any simple thermoelectric converter near the hot end
Of course it's possible - but would you really arrange the experimental device in this way? But it just seems for me, that Gullström-Rossi report completely neglected the heat input from outside: the working temperature of reactor must be somehow reached and this heat isn't for free, especially not at high temperatures. Other than that, these experiments should be easy to replicate, as there are anecdotal reports about palladium glow discharge tube filled with hydrogen, which kept itself in glowing state, once the electricity passed through it. I presume, the QuarkX device would work in similar way.
