    Fonaplats victim of incest [daylong jump-start that nome]
    AC/DC these nuts.



    Fona's gonna do it and run some suicide cable.

    Originally I was just going to run 1 new circuit and maybe 3 outlets but after talking to my girlfriend I think I might need more.

    Id like to be able to plug in 3 computers, 4 monitors and a couple televisions. Along with an indoor fountain.

    My girlfriend wants a deep freezer too now.

    And if Im running wire for that I might at well have a mini fridge, microwave and a washing machine too.

    I've got 2 open spots to use on the circuit breaker box.

    How many outlets can I get off 1 circuit?
    What amperage should I use?
    What gauge wire should I use?
    What kind of outlets should I buy?
    What do I put the outlets in to stick them to the wall? (Its concrete. Or I could mount them on the floor joists overhead...)
    Is there anything else I should get?

    is this the first time you've worked with AC? if so I recommend you don't without understanding it better, especially with how leaky that basement is

    Where's STL1 to give me my shopping list.
    I didn't actually need it before but now I do and don't much feel like searching for it.

    You can put tons of outlets on a 20 amp circuit but if you plug in to many devices you will trip the breaker. As a rule of thumb at 110 volts you can pull no more than 2400 watts on a 20 amp circuit. Even if you are only running 600 watt powers supplies 4 computers on one breaker is all the more you can really run. You need to determine how many watts each device you are going to plug in uses to determine how many sperate 20 amp circuits to run from the panel.

    Electricians use wire nuts, butt connectors are for 12 volt.
