Energia tops
« on: January 17, 2019, 03:14:33 PM »

Just got two of these from fyft. They are different than all the other short circuits I have. The cap screws on instead of the press fit. Were all the short circuits like this originally?

This looks more study... This is the same construction as the US Elec-trick!! Where did you buy it out of curiosity ?

I just looked to see if any more of the old style were available. I didn't see any. The newer version is available for about $11. I don't know how expensive shipping would be.

Mm, . . .  The Energia Short Circuits on the original September 2014 video ads (and the ones I got in November of that year) had the latches not the screws. I'm not sure if these were earlier, newer, if they are a special ran, or what.
