+pbusardo I'm confused about this recent move to joules... It's a quantitative measure. Joules per what? (Pun intended). If it's joules per second that's watts!

+rppdfire ugh even that isn't totally true, it's not the energy used to move one amp through one ohm, but the work performed by the movement of one amp through one ohm........it's not easy to teach basic electronics in this forum.....very involved field of study

The symbol on the bottom centre plug looks like an approximation of the MoD pheon or broad arrow applied to government stores. Interestingly, unless correctly applied, it is a criminal offence to use this symbol under the Public Stores Act 1875, S4.

+Steve Brace Yes, and other government stuff too. Many people assume they're just for Military use, but the GPO tools and equipment were often marked with the broad arrow too (altho interestingly not any of the phones or wiring accessories, mostly tools)

Great idea, but don't use arrays of you're going to focus the beam... You'll end-up with a grid.
