How much Amps can I draw from the new clubworld seat?
 
Ideally would like to pull a warmer amps for Warmer there is no noise that emits from these

I understand there is a universal power point, but ther is no max amps warning on them? The Purser from my last trip was unaware, but she did say it was a pooled "allowance" for the whole cabin.

If there is a limit per seat, could we get a cable from 1 F seat to another, ideally over the Window, so nobody will be bothered by it?

In the document here:

BA say the maximum power is 125W (They state the voltage as 110v, so a max current of just over 1.1A)

Wow so in First no pooling to run more? I need 5AMPS.

5 amps, but at what voltage?
Power is measured in Watts... It would be better to use Watts in this context.

What exactly is this device?

Could you clarify what device this is, that needs 5A ?

5A at 110V is a heater, not a warmer.

It says 500w. So If like me and 3 people in first all pooled our energy supplies it could work?

Is this a (v weird) joke?

Ok, probably like many of the FT congregation gathered here tonight, I'm going through the "why, why, oh why" phase. But I'd be reasonably confident that for multiple reasons the cabin crew will ask, if not instruct, you not to use a hot dog heater whilst airborne. But in any even the plug will probably short itself temporarily to protect the power supply.

This has got to be the best thread ever!

A business idea, could sell the hot dogs to passengers unhappy with the official catering.

The poster has PM'd me to say they have reached their daily post limit, which applies to newer accounts. So we may have 24 hours of speculation ahead of us.......

I suspect, looking at those spikes, we can be reasonably confident that this wouldn't even make it through security and into the cabin as hand luggage, so anything else is moot.

I'd also hazard a guess that this powers through a mains plug of some description to IEC320 leads. You simply can't plug one of those into multiple sockets, so sharing across multiple outlets just doesn't make sense.
