oh I forgot to add:  DON'T plug any Heaters or Hot Air guns into this table!  I am pretty certain one of these is what led to the fuse melting.

The table has a Max Wattage of ~1000 Watts.  The things mentioned above are usually rated at 1,500 Watts.

Things that you can plug into the table without any issue are:


Laptops

Soldering Irons

Lights

LCD TVs

etc


Really almost anything else at the space.  If someone could post a note on the table warning about this it would be most excellent.  or I can do it next time I'm in the space in a few days.

The black power cable that plugs into the wall socket of the nice NB logo LED table melted.  It in turn melted the fuse (yes, melted) which finally made this non-working.  Fuses of the size it takes are notoriously hard to find (at NB anyway) but I did find a micro 15A fuse that I soldered on the inside, behind the power plug.  It covered in electrical tape for extra safety (and style).  I also wired the light on the switch to AC mains, so you can now tell if it is working or dead.

That table is one of the best things in the space, thanks Jarrod!
