The Wattage Dilemma

April 20th, 2009

Steph and I lived in Japan for a year. Our apartment had a single breaker rated at 1500 watts – use any more and you’d lose all power. Our apartment came with an air conditioner to tackle the oppressive summer heat, a dehumidifier, and kerosene heater for the humid winter months. Japan is humid! Now, the A/C took 1740 watts, our dehumidifier 800 watts, coffee maker 800 watts, and kerosene heater 500 watts. Keeping the power on for a given day was a feat – the A/C used more power than we were allotted! Japan was full of ironies.

Some of our pictures from Japan.
