    Agree.

    OPs post sounds more like trolling than a friendly warning. New account, 1 post, very little details for a situation that sounds too good to be true (i.e. car dealer taking back a car). Too many red flags for me to give them the benefit of the doubt.

    Well, even with the concerns and doubts about the OP's story, it remains pretty difficult to not being able to charge a Prime at 120v and 8A mode (selectable in the settings). A toaster would probably pull more power than a Prime at that setting.

    But most of us do not toast our bread for 8 hours, so pay attention to your temps!
