    Way too much work to move my dryer first. And even worse getting it back and vent actually connected. I'd be much better off passing any of my winnings along to the runner up.

    If plugged into the 240v dryer outlet, and you were charging your cell phone, would it charge up faster than on a 120v?

    I actually used my 240v adapter to charge my cell phone for about a week last summer as an experiment, but I never checked for charging length of time.

    Maybe I give it a try soon....

    For USB-compliant outlet power blocks, no. For old fashioned device-specific chargers, it may vary.

    I performed this test using my USB voltage and amp meter.

    The results were exactly the same at 120v and 240 volts.

    That's a way cool USB power meter! Maybe I shouldn't ask if a blender blends any faster if plugged into 240. ;)
