You can read the two official reports of e-cat measurement data (some pics included) here and here.
One report is of the August 7 Energy Catalyzer Test and the other is High Temperature Energy Catalyzer Test, July 16th 2011. Temperature raw data (K ) before room temperature (35° C) calibration.

I am not an electrical engineer or a specialist in precise measurements; therefore, I will trust the results as they are published in these two reports.
However, I have some experience in chemical kinetics, and from this viewpoint, the results are very interesting.
They can be summarized as follows:
1. Averaging of ANYTHING in such a complex kinetic process makes no sence.
2. The authors should compliment their report with a very important graph that can be produced very easily using the data presented in the reports: a plot with Power as an abscissa and Temperature as an ordinate.
3. My very approximate plotting of this type shows two things:
(a) such a plot for most of the experiment is monotonous, and
(b) during the periods when the power is constant the temperature is nearly constant, virtually no significant drift was observed.
These two observations can be interpreted in two opposite ways:
(a) the interpretation bad for the HotCat idea: what we observe is a simple heating of the device by the electric current, or
(b) the interpretation good for the HotCat idea: the amount of extra heat (the LERN reaction) is approximately proportional to the temperature.
Careful engineering calculations of Heat/ Temperature vs. Power and a blank experimernt in the absence of hydrogen are essential for clarification of this subject.
4. The most interesting and unexpected event has happened at the end of the experiment. Between ~17:30 and 17:42 the power is constant and the temperature is constant. Then, while the power remains unchainged, the temperature rapidly drops nearly 25oC over a period of 3 minutes. Then, in the absence of any external changes, the temperature increases ~74oC over 4 minutes and starts to decrease rapidly again. Exactly at this, the most interesting moment, the engineers decided to stop the experiment. (Idiots?!, or blind, or did not watch?).
The most consistent explanation of this temperature spike is that a low-grade LENR reaction has been indeed occuring before the 25oC temperature drop; which means that, in the absence of hydrogen, the temperature at 17:30-17:42 would be ~1000K or lower rather than ~1025K. Then the LENR reaction spontaneously accelerated and the system overheated by ~75oC.
5. The speed of these temperature changes suggests that the heat inertia of the whole system is rather low. Which brings us to the last unusual kinetic feature. The rate of cooling changes (slows down) at ~850K. It could mean that the LERN reaction reignites at this point, a kind of rapidly diminishing afterglow.
Overall, the presented data are very encouraging!
