We have to admit, despite being in the know what it takes to being healthy, we’re still guilty as charged when it comes to having bad habits that we’re fully aware are harmful for our well-being. One habit that’s slowly taking over our lifestyles is sitting for hours and hours on end; we do it at work, and we do it at home.
Among the most common causes for electrical fires are faulty outlets and appliances. For this reason, frequently replacing your electrical outlets and ensuring you don't use faulty appliances with fried cords is essential. Most fire hazards and electrocutions are preventable if people pay enough attention to all the safety measures which include having common sense. Following all the safety requirements and codes for using contemporary electronics and outlets is key in order to avoid injuries. Most electrical circuits in a home are either 15 or 20 amp, 120 volt branch circuits. The codes require that all these circuits are grounded with a three-prong receptacle and a suitable electrical outlet to which the devices can be connected. However, even if you do abide by all regulations and safety codes, you still need to properly maintain the outlet to ensure safety.

To adventure seekers, there's nothing quite as exciting as camping at night. However, without a good light source, spending the night outdoors can feel more like torture than a recreational experience. And don't even think that a simple flashlight will do. I've tried going camping...

As technology advances, purchasing a printer nowadays can be fairly cheap. There is a wide selection of top-quality printers available on the market and you no longer have to spend a ton of money to purchase one. However, running the printer is actually much more...

It’s interesting how the ideas of visionaries have led this world to advancements of great scale, primarily in the technological department. Nikola Tesla, the Serbian scientist who was ahead of time and created the alternating current also envisioned a world run by wireless electricity and...

A frequency inverter is a type of adjustable speed drive that's commonly used in electro-mechanical drive systems used to control torque and AC motor speed by varying motor input voltage and frequency. Frequency inverters are used in applications ranging from large mill drives and compressors to the smallest of appliances. Around 25% of the world's electrical energy is used by electric motors in industrial applications. These are specifically conducive for energy savings using frequency inverters in centrifugal load services. The inverters' global market penetration for all applications is still quite small and this lack of penetration emphasizes significant efficiency improvement opportunities for new inverter installations.

A friend of mine recently took me to a sauna. She had been talking and constantly complaining about the fact that there is no sauna in the gym we go to, so she took matters in her hands and arranged a little treat for us...

Gone are the times when photographers had to sweat the stability out of them in order to shoot the perfect photo. The efforts put were huge and rather stressful, often making the photographer feel like Sisyphus. We all remember the days of the SLRs, or...

While flashlight apps can be super convenient in some particular cases, they aren't sufficient enough for many applications. Your phone's flashlight might prove itself worthy when you're wandering in the dark trying to find the light switch, but it's far from convenient when it comes to efficiency and power. However, there are dedicated LED flashlights that excel in terms of longevity, size and brightness, making them the perfect companion when it comes to exploring the darkest corners of your basement.
