Other Payment Methods We do not accept payments by money order, PayPal or Western Union. PayPal is not a bank, but rather is a payment intermediary, and is not subject to the same regulations as banks. This puts both the purchaser and the vendor at increased risk. Western Union has recently increased its service charges, putting its services out of reach of most customers. Please contact London Power to discuss payment alternatives.
Canadian Dollars are less expensive than USA Dollars!
Our product prices are listed in Canadian dollars.
Buying from outside Canada? No problem! If you are accustomed to dealing in USA dollars (USD), simply take the Canadian dollar (CAD) amount and subtract about 20% for your USD total (this information is current in Fall/Winter of 2023/2024).
If you are purchasing from outside Canada, in any currency, your credit card performs the conversion to your local currency, as you will see on your credit card statement.
We want you to be happy with your purchase. If you find after receiving your order that you have made an error in your selection of products, please contact us within one week of receipt of your order, as arrangements may be possible, at our option, to amend the situation.
We ship to most parts of the world.
We endeavour to ship orders within 2 business days of receipt, and to notify customers of any unusual delays or out-of-stock situations. Please see our Shipping page.
Customs duties, and any import charges are the responsibility of the customer.
A Note on Currency Conversions
Our prices are quoted and charged to your credit card in Canadian dollars. Canadian dollars (CAD) are usually somewhat lower in value than USA dollars (USD), representing a savings for those accustomed to calculating in USA dollars. For our customers using USA-dollar credit cards (or any other currency), your credit card company performs the conversion, and on your credit card statement you will see the Canadian dollar amount followed by the amount charged to your card in your local currency.
Limitation of Liability
London Power shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising out of the use of the books, kits, or electronic equipment we sell.
To help ensure your safety while constructing and using electronic equipment, please read our Safety page.
RISK OF SHOCK Electronic amplifiers are powered from the AC mains distribution. High AC voltages and AC currents are present in the chassis and present a risk of shock to the user. Lethal power levels are available from the mains. Keep hands clear of mains wiring.
HIGH VOLTAGE Vacuum tube electronic circuits operate at high voltages. High DC voltages are derived from high AC voltages and both represent a significant shock hazard. Injury and death may result from contact with these voltages. Keep hands clear of secondary wiring and high-voltage circuitry.
RISK OF SHOCK FROM UNPOWERED EQUIPMENT Capacitors can store electric charge for very long time periods. Electronic equipment that is unplugged from the mains and has not been powered for days can still hold enough charge to cause injury or death. Carefully discharge capacitors using recommended techniques (not shorting) prior to working on the unit.
FIRE RISK Electronic equipment creates heat during operation. Proper air circulation and/or fan cooling will remove this heat from the unit. Do not obstruct ventilation or otherwise impede heat removal. Do not defeat protection circuitry or any devices such as fuse, current limiters, temperature monitors, fan servo circuits, power reduction circuits, in prebuilt circuits or in circuitry fashioned from schematics shown in this text.
HOT SURFACES Electronic devices and chassis containing them can become hot to the touch. Avoid contact of skin with these surfaces as severe injury can result. Tube envelopes can be 250°C at their hottest point. Soldering iron temperatures approach 450°C.
SOLDER FUME & MATERIALS HAZARD Solder used to secure electronic devices contains tin and lead. Solder for electronics use also includes a resin core to clean the connection while soldering. The resin and solder create fumes that may be hazardous to health if inhaled. Exhale gently while soldering. A low-speed fan to extract the fumes is recommended. Ventilation to outside air is preferred. Surface residue on electronic components may be hazardous to health. Wash hands after working with electronic components.
PRODUCT USER / BOOK READER RESPONSIBILITY The user or reader reader must exercise due care in heeding safety advice presented by London Power or Kevin O’Connor when constructing circuits. Work space should be uncluttered, nonflammable and nonconductive. Safety devices and power-limiting test bench devices should be utilized when testing and repairing electronic equipment. Never leave equipment unattended if powered.
