You know I'm not sure if it would work or not. I'll get my husband to check it out tomorrow. But I can't resist saying that there is no way I'm ever going to connect myself up with live electrical power. What would happen if you were holding that during a power surge? And even if you built some type of failsafe into it I don't think I would trust it. I have a very healthy respect for electricity. Also I remember reading in her book that you get better results using a battery than using live electricity.
