I have the older model (P(rototype)-1), and it uses the only 1 core of spent plutonium-238. They get these cores at super low prices from USSR surplus (from when they were trying to do their own interstellar space missions (to catch up with the US Voyager mission), but they simply gave-up. So Rek, having worked for the KGB, starting buying those old cores for pennies and first created a (micro-sized) thermal reactor that would convert the intense heat and radiation into electrical energy back in the 1980s. The loss in power from one form to the other was great for this model, but I was still able to maintain powering my overclocked NES, that runs at 3MHZ phase-cooling), for about .. a decade long on it's own power grid. The NES had a homebrew OS that ran one of the 1st type of folding@home prog--back then, it was doing rendering alongside SGI supercomputers for consumers and medic uses).
