In any case, my point was that running high-powered appliances like those through this non-stop for many hours on end is probably a bad idea, even if it is rated for those maximum loads. Typically, such appliances will list in their documentation not to run them through things like extension cords and power strips, and that should hold true for something like this as well. For those high-draw devices, it's probably best to just do a quick reading of the power draw, and determine how long the device is turned on for to estimate its daily power use.
It probably wouldn't be a bad idea for Kill-A-Watts to include a temperature sensor with an alarm though, to notify people of a problem before things get damaged.

NOT true, avg household heater is 1500watts (yes those small electric space heaters) for $20
TRUE the kill-a-wats are rated for a 15A load (about 1800watts), but ive personally run a 12A 1500 watt heater (that use 1475+/- for about 8 or 12hours) and my kill-a-watt personally started to melt.
like the photo in my last post.
ive also seen someone use it on a 12Ampt, 1500watt EVSE (electric car charger) it also begun to melt after just a few days use.

Also, I don't think too many microwaves draw upward of 1500 watts. Common household units tend to stay below 1250. Anything significantly higher wattage than that will be a big commercial unit costing around a thousand dollars or more, and those typically require 240v outlets anyway, so they wouldn't even work with this.
Higher-powered portable heaters and electric car chargers I could see potentially causing problems during extended run times though, especially if the ambient temperature were high. Those are probably not the kinds of appliances that should be left attached to something like this for extended lengths of time though.

I remember buying 3 for like $11 or $12 each at Lowes I think last year.
Edit - Nvm. Found the thread. It was clearance sale at Lowes so it doesn't apply here.

Thank you for this. Perhaps the best character ever created on a comedy skit show and that includes the SNL heydays.
This might be all of them in one collection. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2z...07

I don't know about this $5 but I just left a RadioShack store after buying a $30 Clip Zip and was handed a printout for $5 off next purchase a week from now. Perfect for an additional microSDHC.
I'm not sure if it's based on amount spent or certain items qualify.

To make it more slick, try this $5 off coupon from RS.

Since the post covered a lot of ground, your post, without citing which statements you claim to be in error is like saying neener neener, I know you are but what am I.
How ever will I learn? Was it:
1) the inefficiency of the combustion engine? vs
2) the efficiency of the electric motor direct drive train?
3) the pollution differential between fossil fuel fired coal/oil plants charging vehicle batteries vs what comes out of the exhaust pipe?
4) current Nuclear Fission (radioactive) vs the future potential of Nuclear Fusion?
Adults debate =or= post to share ideas =or= clear up a point/misconception =or= ask additional thoughts, but chiming in to say something is wrong and then saying but no point in debating...your just wrong is a cute parlor trick.
