Now they have gone into marketing my wireless extension cord idea.
It even looks as if its at just the right time of the year ...this time.

Hi there,

I bought one and used it for a mouse trap. Beaming 3000+ watts across
a distance of two feet, and put a piece of cheese right in the middle
(just under the beam). A mouse comes along and POOF!
You dont hear any noise really, so when you wake up in the morning
all you see is a raisin (with little ears) on the floor where the cheese was.


Take care,
Al

It works perfect beaming to the laptop ! It even powers the USB port grill.

I wonder why they did not make a larger range to charge the batteries on an electric car while on the road :o

Low Price, No specs and Availability "No Suing"

I wonder if it really even works. I can't imagine a 15A load connected to this. I bet the useful current is a function of placement and range.

You'd have a better chance of surviving falling headfirst through the door of
a microwave oven than surviving tripping through and getting sliced in half
by the 7.2 ghz microwave power beam that is powering the oven!

What a great deal - Only $35! wow!

But...not as good as the deal computer geeks has going on now

I sure can't wait until they come back in stock and I can order one!

And I thought MY sense of humor was warped! :razz: Poor mouse -- on second thought, maybe being zapped with LED energy is more humane than getting your neck crushed in an old fashioned trap -- Hmmm....

Hi there,


Yeah, that's what i was thinking too...he he...
better than breaking their little necks, and sometimes those
dang old fash traps catch them by the snout! OUCH! That's
nasty.

Actually in real life i catch mine live with an electric trap i made.


Take care,
Al
