I don't know why. With just a little bit of searching, I found a
3-500Z spec sheet that clearly shows constant current curves going as
high as 2.2 amps! (Here:<http://www.mif.pg.gda.pl/homepages/frank/
So much for the claim that the 3-500Z can't pass more than 420 mA....
Besides, if it offends people, they can just tune their amps some
I don't see what the big deal is.
