Re: never seems to taste the same?
if you're limited on volts , just top it up with amps to make a lovely batch of kilowatts
The thing is, how many amps you can pull without melting your wiring depends on how heavy the wire is. This limits US appliances to 1.8 kw. Google suggests that the UK has kettles running anywhere up to 3 kw (twice the voltage, twice the power, using the same thickness of wire).
