Lamp far from socket plug

Page 2 of 2  


For anyone who finds this a possible option for household power, consider:
No ground. Insulation nicks/wears on hot side. Still works fine with no indication. Someone spills liquid, and possibly in contact with spilled liquid. Now there's a ground.
- or -
Carpet cleaner liquid. Now there's a ground. Operator looks like they're doing YMCA song thing.

1 - Buy one of these:

2 - Plug it in to the nearest receptacle and leave it there for about 10 minutes.
3 - Quickly - very quickly - unplug the plug from the receptacle and plug it into one of the sockets at the other end of the cord. This will trap the electricity inside the cord, creating kind of a "current loop".
4 - Take the cord over to the lamp and plug your lamp into one of the unused sockets. This should power your lamp for a while, although you may have to recharge the cord every now and then.
Note: If this doesn't work, it's probably because you weren't quick enough when performing Step 3. Keep trying until you get it right.

Check with a restaurant supply company. They have some battery powered table lamps that have output equal to about a 100w lamp. Not cheap!
