Voltage Regulators(Stabilizers)/Inverter

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

The meter doesn't measure voltage and if your voltage was low the only way to increase it would be to use increased amperage which will raise your bill not lower it. As a general rule anytime you convert energy or add another electrical appliance to a system the energy use goes up.

I visited an expat colleague in Steung Meachey (sp?) the other day who has in the last couple of months installed a UPS, which uses four truck-sized batteries and serves his whole house. This setup can start his fridge, freezer and aircons simultaneously, and when he demonstrated it the fans actually sped up and stabilised once he kicked over to stored power. Impressive rig, apparently not that expensive or difficult to install. My overwhelming thought was about not being in Kansas any more, Toto. It's been a long time since I've relied on generator power (apart from cyclone season the Outback), so this was all a bit of an eye opener.

You missed out on the 'n' letter. Don't be so politically correct.
Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)
