Lives for gear
 

Specific rules and laws may differ from country to country or from state to state for various reasons, what’s important is that they follow the applicable laws and rules in their specific region.

Some of the things you say makes perfect sense, but how And why “we” do things in “our” part of the world might not be relevant or even legal in other places...there are things you can do in Italy that probably wouldn’t fly in Germany for example.

I do agree with you about getting a device to measure current draw, especially when the person does not understand the basic principles. Furthermore, knowing the power requirements of the gear before you plug them into a circuit makes more sense since you will avoid tripping the breaker(s).
