My SX-500 is 150 Watts so I believe that the Cleo machine will be about 100 Watts.I asked teddybear to check the PS but there is no answer yet.

It matters what the draw is when the current is discharged. At 150, your machine will have surges of greater than 150 watts . If you short the machine of amperage, it is sure to cause problems in operation.

I spent months troubleshooting power issues when an elevator nearby our office drew large amounts of amperage.

Watts, is a poor measurement of amperage draw since it's manufacturer arbitrary.

The protection fuse is 1A(on my machine).The machine can not consume more than 120 Watts, otherwise the fuse will blow. If you speak for in-rush current or microsurges, than the design of circuitry has to take care of that like instaling big capacitors etc.If the machine consumes more than 150 input power then there is a problem and the machine has to be repaired.

Thank you much for your responses and help. I really appreciate!! Unfortunately, I am still waiting for the Cleo to get to my mailing address. I just pray for the machine to have that option otherwise I will get depressed that I paid $750 for nothing.... In case I need to contact Decro they will find out that I am not even certified so I doubt they will help me. On the other hand , the woman who sold me the machine could not find the little booklet of directions that the Apilus came with... Do you know where or how to get it? Again thank you very much!!

Not necessarily, I was able to order out parts for my SM-500 years before I was certified.
Dectro can send you the book, I think it's technically $12 but I've had them include it for free with other orders ( again, when I wasnt certified) .
