How many watts do we use from the mains?
Radio Amateurs often have no idea how many watts we pull out the mains.
That is much more than we think!
I actually watched for fun how many watts my Game Computer (PC with hefty graphic card) consumed. With a high resolution video game was that around 800 watts and higher!
Then I got the idea to see how much the Diamond GSV3000 13.8 volt 25 amp. (EU version) consumed on the 230 volt mains.
See below the test result:
