Message 56139 - Posted: 21 Jan 2016, 11:11:54 UTC - in response to Message 56134.  

My phones battery was stuck at 18% for an hour and a half while charging, glad I noticed it needed plugging in.

:-D Been there, done that. Amazing how much better things work when they are plugged in, and if you then bother to switch them on - wow ;-)

Don't believe it, put my tablet on to charge last night, or at least I thought I had. As I discovered this morning, it was plugged in but not switched on - obviously neither was I!

no I meant if the US has this:



that's a 2 to 13 amp fuse in the plug of the appliance. it usually gives first when the appliance goes, and the main circuit never trips. or both trip. anyway it's the bit you replace first. if you know about them that is...

winning.

Not that I've seen... Especially since we have the GFCI breaker/resets at the outlets. (GFCI = Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt.)

No fuses to be replaced here... All breakers in our panels, and GFCIs scattered throughout the house.

oh. socket switches. don't have them in Germany either :D unless you get a multisocket extension with a separate switch of course.

well in that case 'd'oh' would be the mild version, yes...

Do you US guys have 'plug fuses' too?
Now, that's a confusing concept to a German! (and we still have some fuse wire for those little ceramic fuse holders...)

We have GFCI Breaker Outlets. Instead of popping a main circuit breaker in the panel, the breaker pops at the outlet. It is also reset at the outlet. Here in the US, these usually start at 20 Amp. breakers.

I think it's only the GFCI that pops at the outlet. A circuit overload will still pop the traditional breaker. I believe there are also GFCI breakers that will protect everything on the circuit and have to be reset at the panel.

I still have fuses in my house.

I was talking about the outlets with the Circuit Breakers in them... The GFCI Outlets; however, I was mistaken, and they do exist in 15 Amp Outlets, too.

15 Amp GFCI Outlet with Reset...

We have the 20 Amp GFCI Outlets in our house. ...and yes, the main breakers can still pop if the load is too high; but, usually with the GFCI Outlets, the Outlet pops first.

Back at the top, and WINNING!!!!! :-)

I think that's only a GFCI/arc fault, not a general overload protection. At least as far as I can tell, it won't trip itself if you plug a 20 amp load into it, as long as said load doesn't have any kind of fault.

I was taking it to mean an outlet controlled by a wall switch. Very common in the US for residential lighting. Very often, half of an outlet will be switched while the other half is always live.

Good morning everyone. :-)

Well, my RAC here will drop, again... I've Suspended Beta to run Main; I have Lunatics 0.44 CUDA50, and my "app_config.xml" file for MB v8 at Main up and running. :-)

Now to get my RAC back up at Main... :-)

Thanks Suzie. :-)

I hope that the RAC I've accumulated here will last a little while. We'll see.

Main seems to be running fine, now. Both my GPUs are busy. It's been TOO long without SETI@Home.
