In order to use an ampmeter, you must first locate the box and then identify the circuits. You can, however, buy a device that plugs into a wall outlet and sends a signal down the wire. You then pass a detector over the breakers and that will indicate which breaker the outlet belongs to. This is out of the question in Todd's situation.

When we're stuck with the questionable amperage, we try to pull it off with fluorescents. That doesn't work when traveling.

Without going to a more efficient light like a Frezzi or a Joker, Todd is in an almost impossible position.

We have all of our impoetant computers on battery backups. Too bad about the weather thing. That must have been a panic filled moment. I keep laughing about it because it's happened to us a few times when we wrwe assured that the circuit was clear.
