putting aside the *fact* that it is *trivially* easy to design a properly isolated power supply to provide low voltage from mains *cough*ipod*cough*....

I'll just say "ain't it a good thing that the zeo is battery powered then, eh?"

I think this has gone far enough, I was discussing a DIY solution and trying to ensure anyone attempting this at home was scared enough to think twice if they didn't know what they were doing. You seem to want to simply dispute anything said.

A parting gift since it is so easy, tell it to this ladies and others families

Not just fake iPod chargers - Apple just had a major recall of chargers here in Oz and other countries.

Anyhow this has now gone well off topic, so maybe we should consider this thread closed.

Thread closed. Feel free to start another one, but please let's try not to be snarky when replying and when folks are simply trying to help others.

Thanks folks.
