Cordless Toilets

Page 1 of 2  
Has anyone tried any of these new cordless toilets? I am looking into replacing my toilet and thought I might go with one of these cordless models. However, I'd like to get opinions from others that have tried them before buying one.

No, but I hear that the 18v model kicks ass compared to the 14.4v and 12v models. Just make sure to get the charger and extra battery with it. I think you can buy a box set that includes a cordless vanity and shower too.

be sure and get the kind where you can interchange the toilet battery with laptop computer batteries.

Would the Celeron ones do well, or if you take a long time, should you use the Centrino kind?

The batteries are only good for about 20 flushes. Less if you really dump.

I've always preferred the gasoline powered ones myself. I change the spark plug each spring and never had a problem.

Are you talking about the Kohler TE 125 with the small type Garbage Disposer built in. If so go for the TE 135 it's 110V you do have to rough in a 110V for hard wiring. but no messy batteries to change.

This is Turtle.
No it will draw energy by putting the reciever in the dark bathroom because the reciever will charge from the power of the darkness. You have heard of solar power, well this is call the Dark Power and darkness will charge the batterys. Also keep the lide down as much as you can for it will charge the batterys with the lide down where it will be dark in the bowl area.

Every one seems to think you are talking about the battery or gasoline powered models, but I have a feeling you are referring to the new enviro-friendly wind-up spring-loaded ones. Right?

I got a cordless toilet from Harbor Freight, the 12 volt model. Didn't last very long, but for $29.99 I can afford to buy another one in a couple months.
Get one that interchanges with your Ranco ball rotator.
============================
Subject: Problem with my Electric Balls Rotator Date: Thursday, January 15, 2004 11:44 AM
I recently bought the "Ronco" electric balls rotator. The manufacturer said this thing will rotate my balls 20 times every minute at the slow speed, and 180 times every minute at fast speed. I thought this would be a worthwhile investment, since my balls were just hanging there getting no use.
I clamped it to my shaft as directed. I connected it to the outlet, and it began rotating. I adjusted it for a medium rotation speed and it worked well for the first couple minutes. Suddenly it began increasing in speed and within a few minutes it was operating at over 1200 rotations per minute, and the rotation meter was pegged and the word "OVERLOAD" was flashing on the digital readout. That's when the whole thing went crazy. My balls became entangled around each other, and the left ball ended up on the right and the right on the left. What a mess, and quite painful too. I pulled the plug and called customer service.
I spoke with the main man, (Ron Ronco - company president). He told me to push the button labelled "info", which I did. Then he asked me to give him the code numbers, which I did. He said that the numbers indicate that my balls are too large and too heavy for normal use, and that considering this, it is normal for the machanics in the machine to over compensate and increase speed. He told me that my balls do not fit in the "normal range" for size and weight, and that there is nothing he can do for me, and I will just have to use the machine as is. I asked for a refund, and was told that they will not give refunds due to personal physical abnormalities. I am really angry about this, but it appears there is little I can do other than sue the company and/or file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.
I am asking if anyone might offer a means to change the mechanics in this device by possibly modifying the voltage or power consumption to compensate for my supposed abnormality. I'd also like to know if any of you men who are using one of these devices are having any problems with it?

I posted the description in my last news group post.
The electric ball rotator is available in several different models. The high power one with the 24 volt battery is good for construction sites, and auto dealerships (where you find big furry pairs). There is also a 3.6 volt trainer model which is sold in college bookstores. Before cordless tools, they used to use a plug in model, which had safety problems. And should not be used in the bath tub or shower.

Did anyone else see the program on TV about the history of the ................... VIBRATOR?
Quite enlightening and entertaining.
