RE: A question about power regenerators

Based upon what others have said, it seems like a good unit. I would give it a good power cord and a good outlet. Not talking big dollar stuff but standard outlets can be 69 cent specials and should always be replaced with better quality outlets (a few bucks each). I have seen many outlets with the wire that just slips into a hole in the back. Think of the wire being grabbed by two small, semi-circular edges that conduct all the current (yuck!). IMO, solid AC power needs to be screwed or, preferably, because it is easier, screw clamped. Note that if it is at the end of serial run of 3 other similarly crappy outlets, it may all be for naught (so replace the whole series with clamped outlets:). Dedicated line, even better.

Look for a power cord with larger gauge conductors.
