Thought I'd start a thread on what the perfect transformer looks and acts like. what features are gotta have, and wants ? we may have done this before, and I am sure folks will want to say MINE MINE- the one I use ! but let's stick to features and specs that make sense ( or not? ) in a trans you want to buy. basics I think we all agree on, and most trans meet- needs to hold voltage to less than 1 full volt drop from unloaded to loaded. easy to plug in photo-cell and digital timer plenty of room on each lug for 5-6 12 guage wires or more removable water resistant door with label nice 6-8 foot cord circuit breaker switches for each common multi tap UL listed for US and canada stainless cabinet but I am open for arguments on the above. things I'd like to see: the overall trans can handle what it is rated at, period. I don't have to stop at 80%, 90%, but go all the way to 100% and the trans will still go 20 years. you can put more than 300 watts on a single common if you choose but not overload the overall trans. a longer cabinet, so around the lugs I have about 4 inches more underneath so I can actually get my hand in there to put wires in lugs without removing the bottom. 1/2 volt taps from 11 volts loaded to 16, and a seperate model that does the same but also takes 1 volt steps from 17 up to 22. or even better- give me 8-9 taps that are each adjustable with a dimmer switch! the ability to switch out the cord to a longer or shorter one like FX. I have other ideas, but chime in guys !
