Answer: 
No. The heater is rated at 3.5kW (3,500 Watts). 3500W / 110V = 31.82 Amps.(roughly 30 Amps).
Your standard 110V outlet is only 15 Amps and the heater would not be able to function as designed.
---
You'll need to have a special 30-Amp breaker installed with 10-gauge wire run to a junction box where this unit will be installed. I recommend a certified electrician.

Answer: 
No, it is not. It comes with a cord but you have to purchase the male cord end separately (which it does not tell you on the box, another negative for this unit).

Can this unit be used to heat a shower or kitchen sink without the help of a whole house unit?

I want to set up POU water heaters at each water usage location because I don't want to replace my whole house water heater, but I need to know that this unit works on its own and not with the help of a whole house tank.

Answer: 
Definitely not this unit. You can use a POU water heater for a shower but there are better brands than this one out there.

Answer: 
Hi JA1237. Unfortunately this particular model cannot create the heat necessary for a shower or higher flow sink. We have several larger models that would be best suited for those applications.

Would this "super heat" the water once the 120 degree water from the whole-house water heater entered this point of use heater?

Answer: 
No, it would not as most of the point of use water heaters max out at 120 degrees, anyway. Adding this in line with an existing water heater would be a waste of money. Your existing water heater should have a setting that goes up to around 140 degrees so you can just raise the temperature there if you want your water to be hotter.

Answer: 
Hi Sparky,
This unit can be used under a sink, however, the
maximum output temperature is 140 degrees.
So you would gain 20 degrees max over the normal water heater setting.

What sort of temperature control does this device offer? Can you set the output temperature to a certain value, as long as the system has the ability to heat to that value?

Answer: 
No, there is no way to set the temperature on this device. The temperature is regulated by water flow and unless you have a tremendous of water flow passing through the unit you will never exceed more than 92 or 93 degrees.

Answer: 
Hi Avi. This model is flow controlled so the output temperature will be based on how much you restrict the water flow. Controlling the flow to 0.5 GPM would give you the most temperature rise.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Electric tankless review Reasonably easy to install. Pretty good looking unit. I like the compact size. Overall no surprises. From a functional perspective it works very well and quickly. I is installed where my built-in BBQ is. I would recommend this product. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good heater It was very easy to install nad the price was goog July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't by this water heater! This tankless water heater is terrible! It works off of flow (the longer water flows through it, the hotter it's supposed to get). However, you have to run water through for at least 5 mins just to reach a temperature that is barely lukewarm. The highest temperature it would reach is 92 degrees F. That's not even hot enough to wash dishes. There is no way to adjust the temperature, either. Not only does it not get very hot, but you waste a tremendous amount of water just waiting for it reach lukewarm. Total waste of money. May 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Inefficient water heater This unit not heat water above 77 degrees no matter what pressure I set. I would not recommend it for anything other than very luke warm water June 7, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by More Oomph The unit installs easily but struggles to warm the water above tepid. Temperature of water in the line is too low for the unit. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BEST OF THE BEST Easy to install, get hot water faster for all the house. May 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This is a good product. This product was easy to install, if you don't mind laying on your back, under the sink. It works as described. However I think it is rather slow in producing hot water considering that the heater is only 24 inch. from the faucet. Perhaps this is due to the unit being only 120V. You are not able to set the temperature as you can do on their larger units. This unit starts at around 65-70 degrees when you turn the faucet on and increases in temperature as the water flows. If I had to do it again I would consider the 220V unit. Each unit requires their own breakers, so your electrical panel comes into play. I have a whole house unit as well from EcoSmart (220V) and that works really well. November 6, 2013
