TFA is talking about an inverter. You're talking about a battery. They're very different things.

"Descriptions of the game
I've heard this before. Do I misunderstand or are they claiming a legal prohibition on me transmitting a description of the game? Is there actually a law that prevents me from describing what I see?
Damn, dude. That's quite a diatribe. You're right, of course. Uber COULD be any of those terrible things.
But have you ever used the service? Every time I have, they have been efficient, friendly, and professional.
How will they account for the widely varying incubation periods of different foodborne illnesses?
Two of the most common infections, E Coli and Salmonella, can take several days to show symptoms.
It sounds like you really want texting and talking while driving to be dangerous. But can you point to a statistic that shows that accident rates have risen in the last 10 years?
Texting and driving pretty much started around then.
Wikileaks didn't leak top secret docs. Bradley Manning did.
Wikileaks just published them. The 1st amendment guarantees the right to do that.
Keep in mind, the NY times, for example, reported a lot of this info, too. No one is accusing them of having committed a crime.
And exactly what law has Wikileaks broken?
When T-Mobile did this last year, I had to sue them in small claims court to get my ETF waived.
If you're for GMO use, then surely, you're pro GMO-labeling, right? How else will you know which food to buy?
I was thinking I'd buy up all the old machines at bargain basement prices and then sell them to companies that do ore-employment drug testing.
A common way to beat a drug test is to smuggle in clean urine, say, in a condom taped to your thigh. If people had to be naked-imaged first, this would be quite difficult.
If these machines can't be used to fight terrorism, my company could facilitate their use fighting the war on drugs. And make a tidy profit too.
So if I want to travel to, say Europe, and buy a local SIM card, can I just wait until I'm in Europe, and then unlock my phone?
Does doing so still violate US law? Does possessing the still unlocked phone when I return to the US violate the DMCA?
I once thought I should open a DVD-ripping shop in Mexico. You ship your DVDs to me, I decrypt them and send them back to you along with the decrypted backups. Has any law been broken?
I carry around a spare battery for my Android phone. Often, I'm traveling or otherwise away from home for long periods of time and I find it to be a lifesaver.
I got this cheap universal charger and it works great. I plug the charger into the wall and then plug in the dead battery. The charger also has a USB port, so I don't need a second charger for my phone. Overnight, just plug the phone and the second battery into the charger. When I wake up, both are charged.
It's only 650 mA, so it takes all night to fully charge both batteries. But that's fine with me.
As a bonus, it really is a universal charger. I've charged mine and others' camera batteries too. If it's a lithium ion battery and it physically fits, it charges.
