It would have to be a factor of 30, not 4. The power meter shows 400 W, and
the output is 12 kW.

That's preposterous. You can see that the machine is sitting on a board with
rubber feet and has been moved around from one photo to the next. You know
that the researchers who verified it inserted the temperature probes and
tubes, insulation and blue tape all over it. Do you really, seriously think
they would not notice wires going into it?

This is real life, not a pulp thriller novel or James Bond.

Have you ever seen the size of the wires going into a 10 kW electric motor
or heater? It is enormous!
