Estimates are given of the raw data that are the basis for the claims of excess power production by the electrochemical charging of palladium in deuterium oxide (D2O). Calorimetric results are also presented that show no anomalous power production in either 0.1M LiOD/D2O or 0.1M LiOH/H2O (LiOH is lithium hydroxide). Several possible sources of error in open-system calorimetry are discussed that can confound interpretation of temperature changes in terms of anomalous power production.
