comment Why is there a beaded tie on new fire extinguishers?
@Aphex5 If you're using them to bundle electronics cables, they're probably not the same product (even though they may look the same).

comment How many computer chargers can I put on 1 electrical outlet?
@Lee I show the maths, so it can easily be applied to any country as long as you know the voltage and amperage.

comment What is my dryer's fourth prong for?
The two ungrounded (hot) conductors are not out of phase with each other in reference to each other, they are only out of phase with each other in reference to the grounded (neutral) conductor. It's a single phase split-phase system, so the grounded (neutral) conductor splits the single phase by center tapping the secondary of the transformer.

Circuits should only be loaded to 80%, which would be 1440 watts on a 15 ampere circuit.

A picture would be helpful. Also the model number or some other information that could help with identification, is required to definitively answer this question. Without more information, the answer is... Maybe.
