Thanks to E-Cat World reader Omega Z for sending me this comment, which I thought would be a good starting point for a new post. For newer readers here, when we talk about the ‘mouse’ we are referring to the first stage in the new configuration of the hot cat reactor which, according to Andrea Rossi, provides the energy and control required for the ‘cat’ or proper E-Cat section of the reactor. Post has been edited for capitalization, spelling and clarity.
Here’s what I see as the big story. The Mouse uses 900 watts. Not 1600 or 2600 in start up as the original cats did.
It’s COP is low. Like 1.02 to 1.1. Why not just use a 900 watt resistor? Seriously. This is in itself of no real consequence — one could just say big whoop!

The mouse has its own charge. Hmmm. Yet such a low COP for itself. Why is that? What does the mouse bring to the table? Not a pun — it must be food for the CAT. Yes, it provides heat to activate the cat, but it brings something Else.
I would note that Rossi has said at high COP, neutrons escape. Does the mouse supply something that helps capture the neutrons, or, something else that enhances the process? I would point out that I asked Rossi about this within just a couple of days after he revealed the existence of the mouse.
I don’t recall the exact words, but it was of the possibility of the mouse providing food to the cat, or something that enhanced the capture process. My post went to moderation, then disappeared altogether. All my posts on the JONP now just disappear. No moderation — just gone. I suspect it’s a subject he doesn’t want visible on the JONP and as a precaution spams all my posts there automatically.
Anyway, I thought I’d provide you some food for thought.
