§ 16 Extension.


About the method called the extension I can not say anything I can neither good nor bad. As he simply did not come across to me, but I did not specifically look for him. Moreover, I did not have the desire to buy it. According to eyewitnesses, it does not work, so I will provide comments to believe him or not - your business.

-antipozitron-: See what the authors write about this method:
To do this, you will need to specially prepare the outlet and extension cord, and it is also possible (50/50) to slightly change the wiring scheme. In houses with euro wiring changes are minimal.
An interesting idea of ​​the authors about the minimal changes. So let's see what is meant. First, you will have to change the meter phasing (swap the two wires at the input). This is already a fine, unless of course the controllers notice, but as practice has shown, they will notice it sooner or later, plus there is not always an opportunity to carry out such manipulations. The second is that you modify the extension so that the neutral wire on the plug is connected not to the pin part, but to the ground contacts. Thus, you should be in the house with a euro socket (with grounding contacts), high-quality grounding and extension cord under the euro socket.

Here is a check for us, is it really worth something for us? Let's listen to the authors:
It is very difficult to determine that there is unaccounted use and to prove something, since the meter will work correctly.
A bold statement, but really? And in fact, everything is exactly the opposite! The first simplest test is to check the meter phasing. Here you can count on a fine of $ 500 dollars. Well, let's say that we’re off. The second check is the check of the currents flowing through the zero and phase wires of the meter - 100 percent failure. Here it is already possible to run into the cells in the sky. That's all about this method. Is it worth $ 6 each decides for himself. If somewhere my thoughts sounded messy - write, I will try to explain it more clearly.

Elremont: Judging by the text we are talking about variations on the theme of "hammer your ground, connect the wire to it and rejoice"
