    If I cannot attach an extension to my new REMstar Auto A-Flex machine, how can I use it when not near an outlet? for example, in a hotel room or when visiting in homes that don't have appropriat​ely located outlets?

    ​Can I use a power strip? or a heavy duty extension cord? or ???

    Can anyone give suggestion​s?
    Thanks!
