I doubt they can control what you plug in as an appliance. If it is UL or
CSA approval they need get very large wall warts and backfeed them...LOL

It may take a few though.

I doubt you can simply take a 12V wall wart and feed 12V back into it
and expect it to place this energy back on the grid. I think you're
more likely to release the magic smoke this way.

But, what do I know? I'm no expert. Give it a try GB and tell us how
well it works. :)

 My two kVA wall wart should do just fine...LOL

Who said anything about 12V? As long as it's UL, ULc, CSA or whoever else
profits from this junk now, it should be fine.

Where is your creativity?...LOL

So long as everyone understands that you're kidding, it's okay.  There
are some less sophisticated readers of this newsgroup who don't
understand that in electronics, things aren't always as reversible as
they are in mechanics.  A radio receiver, for instance, doesn't become a
transmitter simply by shouting into the speaker!

And while some electric motors become generators (or alternators) if you
spin their shafts, an AC to DC power supply will absolutely *NOT* turn
DC input to AC output!

 Well I was kidding to a point to make a point. These people don't know a
volt from an ampere and they have home solar systems running?
