    Is the DC power output from the transfoermer 2A or 1.2A as I have both and which to know which one to use or is it of no consequence?

    You mean the adapter? If they come in the package, then they are safe to use.Actually is it of no consequence as long as your input voltage matches the power specifications of 100V to 240V AC.

What should tour sygar test for normal

A1C: 7%
A1CA1C is a test that measures a person's average blood glucose level over the past 2 to 3 months. Hemoglobin (HEE-mo-glo-bin) is the part of a red blood cell that carries oxygen to the cells and sometimes joins with the glucose in the bloodstream. Also called hemoglobin A1C or glycosylated (gly-KOH-sih-lay-ted) hemoglobin, the test shows the amount of glucose that sticks to the red blood cell, which is proportional to the amount of glucose in the blood.X may also be reported as eAG: 154 mg/dlmilligrams (MILL-ih-grams) per deciliter (DESS-ih-lee-tur), a unit of measure that shows the concentration of a substance in a specific amount of fluid. In the United States, blood glucose test results are reported as mg/dL. Medical journals and other countries use millimoles per liter (mmol/L). To convert to mg/dL from mmol/L, multiply mmol/L by 18. Example: 10 mmol/L ?¯?¿?½ 18 = 180 mg/dL.X
  • Before a meal (preprandial plasma glucose): 80-130 mg/dl
  • 1-2 hours after beginning of the meal (Postprandial plasma glucose)*: Less than 180 mg/dl

    I have a older bolens garden tractor that over charges the battery

    Are you sure you did not mix your wires or they were mixed when you bought it? Two of the wires that come out from under the flywheel should be the same color go to the outside spades on the regulator and the center spade is to the battery , probably by way of through a gauge and key but for test purposes it will be the wire that feeds about 13.8 DC volts to charge the battery, the two outside spades on the regulator that have wires that go back under the flywheel are ac voltage anywhere from 18 to 38 volts depending on RPM of engine . Yours is a voltage regulator, Rectifier, converts it to DC and regulates it at 13.8 volts DC

    The unit plugs into the wall. that is the way that it gets power. If you are not getting power out of the transformer then you should replace it.
