I assume that the amount of wiring is what makes a transformer able to deliver/handle more current?
I thought the only thing that could change voltage from 250v (~220v) to 12v was a transformer?
And I'm not planning on implementing my own transformer
If you connect 220 VAC to a capacitor, and resistors in series, wouldn't it then contain 220 V, just that the current would flow at a different speed (amps)?
I even have a patent on the method of detecting mains failure to allow essential information to be stored in EEPROM in a set top box context.
