          Here's a great sized Portable Propane Radiant Heater, with high/low settings, LED work light, dual tank capability and 3 USB charging ports. Works with all DEWALT 20-Volt MAX or FLEXVOLT batteries.
          Features include - 7 hours of run-time with two cans (tanks) on low setting, you can also use a adapter hose for a 20 lb LP tank for longer run times.
          We used it replacing our door, provide general warmth (low setting) and lighting, it was easily moved as needed and kept the shadows ar bay with it's LED Light.

          The FLEXVOLT 12.0 Ah Battery provides up to 8X runtime in 20-Volt MAX and delivers ultimate power in 60-Volt MAX and 120-Volt MAX cordless tools. It changes voltage when you go from 20-Volt MAX to 60-Volt MAX tools. Lithium Ion technology delivers performance in the same size as our 9.0 Ah Battery, so it is more powerful in as compact a package as possible. It also includes a built-in LED Fuel Gauge for instant charge status, and is compatible with all 20-Volt MAX tools and chargers.

          Here we used it in our heater and ran the fan and light for two 'work' days and it's still on 'full' charge. Think it will take a bit over my 6Ah batteries to run this one down. We have a Flexvolt 120 volt compound 12" miter saw and can't wait to get a second 12Ah to mate up with it, for use in it.

          So here's a table one may think would rock back and forth because it's not that deep and stands taller than a normal table. Let me ensure you it is sable and will handle games and potting or general cleaning with ease.
          So my 1st use was as a table for my miter-box saw, (pictured). The table is the perfect height and no bending required and did not rock, made a normal job so much more easy. I plan is to use it as a portable general table for everything from cleaning to potting and than some.
          Here's some quicks details: Durable blow-molded poly with stainless steel faucet that attaches to a garden hose for water flow, with a small sink well, drain hose and drain cover. Has a built-in ruler

          Woods 6 -Outlet Surge Protector features 280-Joules, 1.5 ft. cord and overload protection. This device features an internal protection that will disconnect the surge protective component at the end of its useful life but will maintain power to the load now unprotected. If this situation is undesirable for the application, follow the manufacturers instructions for replacing the device.

          Here we have a good basic 'Surge Protector features 280-Joules, 1.5 ft. cord and overload protection'. We rate this as only good as it's only a 280-Joules which is way down there for use to protect from surges. Now yes you can use it for any and everything within it's rated:15A 120VAC 60Hz 1800W, but if you have electrics i.e. 4k UHD TV, computer etc... than your want a 2k plus or better Joules rated surge protector. Also once the usable life of a protector is reached, there keep powering your devices, so check that, normally green (Protected) light near the on/off switch it tells you it's working or not.

          How many amps does this fixture draw?

          I am trying to buy an extension cord to run three of these fixtures, and want to get one that is heavy-duty enough to safely run them with. 2 tubes @ 40W each multiplied by three fixtures equals 240 Watts, but extension cords seem to be measured in Amps as well. Checking the Lithonia site did not turn up any more detailed specs than the Home Depot site, either! Any electrical gurus out there that can answer this?

          Answer: 
          Well, unless I forgotten my math, Watts/volts=amps. One 40 watt T-12 at 120 volts = 0,33 amps times two .66 amps.
          Do the same for 32 watts T-12.
          You can find the charts or calculator's online, type in "watts to amps" or amps to volts. Most of these site will many difference calculators to do the math or list the formulas.
          That's it in a nut shell.

          Answer: 
          Yes, bleach should have no effect on the sprayer itself. In fact, you could spray anything but, corrosives type liquids that effect the tank, hose/tubing, wand and pump.
