It’s just been revealed that the PS3 uses a massive 380 watts of power when running. That got me to thinking…what else can you do with 380 watts?
First off, your typical kitchen mixer, capable of literally turning ingredients into mincemeat, sucks down a relatively light 250 watts.
You can run this amp and drive two speakers at 190 watts each, or one at 380 watts.
For you rockers, this bass amp with a 15” woofer also uses 380 watts.
You can pump 3600 gallons per hour into your saltwater fish tank.
Watch some telly on this 50” plasma TV.
Or, go for the visual stereo effect with two of these 34” Sony CRT televisions.
Or, maybe go a little crazy and watch eight of these 15” LCD TVs at once.
Melt some dry adhesive with this DYNAMELT S series melter.
Finally, you can heat up flasks to a whopping 842°F (450°C) with this Glas-Col Spherical Heating Mantle.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, you cannot run a tire warmer for 380 watts…but it’s close The above superbike front-wheel warmer draws 450 watts as it brings the tire up to 211°F (99°C).
