Hi -

Could you please tell me what amperage extension cord I should get to use with an Einstein in the UK (240 volts)?

How many amps does the Einstein draw?

Thank you,
-Rob

In the U.S. we recommend a 12-14 gauge extension cord. This translates to a 1.63 to 2.05mm diameter wire (or 2.08 to 3.31 sq. mm).

Max amperage is 8-9A.

I have both 12 and 14 50ft long 3-OUTLET extension cables rated at 300v. Is it safe to attach 3 Einsteins on either one? What are the limitations? Cheers!

using either should be fine. If given the choice, go with the bigger cord. There may be some slight reduction in recycle time.
