Hi Curt and List,

For the majority of people my APO2 works as designed, but there are a few 
pesky loads that it just won't work with -- and I can't duplicate the problem 
here. The problem bugged me enough that I decided to pull the APO2 off the 
market until I could get a chance to redesign it to use a relay instead of 
the solid state power switch (which I think is the problem).

I do have plenty more of the APO2's around, but I'm out of cases. If anybody 
wants one I'd be happy to supply one minus the case (and give you a $7 
discount off of list price) -- as long you understand that I won't garantee 
it for all loads. If it works great, if it doesn't I'll refund your full 
purchase price.
