Re: code for led lighting micro transformers

The backwards "UR" indicates that it is a UL Recognized device. It is intended to be part of another product. Without reading the report, you can't look at the component and determine what has been...

Re: code for led lighting micro transformers

A CE mark on a lighting product most likely means that the manufacturer has self-declared that the product meets a European based standard. (Which standard???)

Does this chinese company have a...

Re: What about those pocket sized jumper boxes?

They're using lithium batteries, which can safely dump a lot of current really fast. From what I've read, they're not going to jump start a car that has a completely dead battery, but they'll start...

Re: Why would a Battery Tender Junior not be sold in California?

Or alternatively, acknowledge that this technology allows a very large portion of the U.S. to work from home. A population working from home would have a huge impact on our petroleum usage. Yet we...

Re: Why would a Battery Tender Junior not be sold in California?

Here is my problem with this law. The consumers don't care. The fact that California has to enact a law to address Vampire Loads (again, I agree 100% that they SHOULD be addressed), is where the...

Re: Why would a Battery Tender Junior not be sold in California?

I can't say that, but I am less than the current average. My next house will be smaller. (not including the garage, of course.)

Re: Why would a Battery Tender Junior not be sold in California?

The average US house uses 903,000 wh per month. a 1w vampire load consumes 720 wh per month.

Some would argue that discussing vampire loads, while we insist on watching TV on a 60" screen in a 70...

Re: Why would a Battery Tender Junior not be sold in California?

To be fair, vampire loads are also "rounding errors" in relation to how much energy we use in general.

Re: The USA made conundrum...

There is a point to buying old product. It beats letting it go to the landfill. No point in using our resources to make a new one, when an old one is perfectly fine.
