Painful purchase

Well after months of agonizing over the expense, I finally popped for a Franks 50/100 amp Super Booster Auto Transformer. It arrived today. I got just two words "HEV-VEE". This thing weighs a ton.
I have to say now that I have it in hand, I am glad for the protection and the peace of mind it should provide. But it was a tough purchase to make. I expect I will be pickled tink the very first time it saves my rig from a potential meltdown.

I feel your pain. Just invested myself, but I'm sure it is the right thing to do.

Note that other than giving you a phone number to call, that website tells you almost nothing.

If you go to the articles and technical tabs I think there's plenty of info.

No?

Using the iPhone app, I don't see any tabs on that page. Perhaps it's different on a desktop.

Hard to believe Apple doesn't support Flash yet. Still afraid of Jobs I guess.

Totally agree. It's the right thing to do.

Thanks for the encouragement Turbs and Herk.
I will be at Percy Quin SP Thursday. It will be especially interesting to see the results as I have camped there many times without any sort of protection.

I reviewed and presented all the specs (much more than is on the web site) in my review posted in the Product Review Forum under Franks Autotransformer.
