"25 Cleaning Amps"

Don't you know... "Cleaning Amps" are like a pipe cleaner. They're "special" amps. You send a bunch through the wire and it scrapes all of the stuck electrons off of the sides of the wire... Don't send too many though, or they might get stuck at a bend...

25 Cleaning Amps - we have no idea how efficient this vaccuum is, please just buy it.

4 Peak Horsepower on a shop vac. -  we have no idea how efficient this vaccuum is, please just buy it.

 

For years I saw home vaccuums and shop vacs marketed with this nonsense.  They still plugged into 15A 120V wall recepticles.

Highest Power Density !  - yes, when you heatsink it to that shipping container over there.

 

Fastest Market Growth!  - we finally moved from the onesy twosey garage shop to a rented space where we ship dozens.

Same here, and if the sales droid becomes too insistent about the need, I state that maybe the product is too unreliable for me to consider purchasing.  That usually gets them to back off.

@zeeglen: ..."Instant-On" [...] vacuum tube radio and TV sets [...] a silicon diode across the on/off switch in reverse to the main B+ rectitifer would keep the tube heaters at half-power...

I learn something new every day!
