Answer: 
Hello Moe. This model is designed to work between 208-240 Volts within 50-60 Hz so I see no reason why it shouldn't work overseas.

Answer: 
This unit should provide enough heat for a shower as long you use a shower head that is rated at 1 GPM. I larger shower head would give you lukewarm water at best.

Will it stop heating if inlet temp is high enough?

We waste a lot of water waiting for the cold water in the pipes to clear. I want a unit to heat only until the hot water from the natural gas fired water heater arrives. Once the incoming water is warm enough, I want the point-of-use heater to shut off the heating element.

Answer: 
Hello Pluschap. This model does not have an incoming temperature sensor and will not stop heating if it is fed hot water. I would recommend going with an Eco 8 model which does measure incoming water temperature and will perform as you would desire.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Easy install ,good product and great value, just what I needed. February 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by waterhtr06 I used this in a workshop so it was an economical way to have hot water for clean up without having a bulky expensive water tank. February 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cold kitchen hot water The kitchen faucet is the furthest point from the hot water heater. Now, instead of taking long minutes to get warm water. It only takes seconds. A few more seconds and it is hot. Very pleasing efficiency upgrade. January 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't heat water We purchased this water heater to use on a office break room sink. It only provides lukewarm water if you don't fully open the faucet. The other problem we found is you can't adjust the heat of the water. I would not recommend this water heater. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by From Brrrr to bearable I had a sink in the garage that only had cold water running to it and Brrr was it cold in the winter. Since I installed this water heater it has been used more now that it's bearable. January 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by water heater had it for a month and it quit working under very little daily use I October 31, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hot water for an outdoor shower I bought this to heat an outdoor shower near our beach. I didn't need something to shower a family of four or take long steamy showers, I just needed enough hot water to get the kids cleaned off and it has worked great for that purpose. June 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is what you are looking for We have a business in a retail space that doesn't have a water heater. We provide bathrooms for our customers, and we have a sink where we wash things for at least a continuous hour a day. These things provide consistently hot water, even with running it continuously for an hour. At another location, we have a 10 gallon hot water heater that runs out within about 10 minutes doing the same activity. I didn't put anything for "Ease of Installation" because we had an electrician and plumber install them. These costs were fairly inexpensive (especially compared to installing a full sized hot water heater). Our electrician wanted to have the unit on hand for the installation to make sure he wired it up correctly. You could most likely do the plumbing part of it yourself -- you just need to T off of your cold water supply. December 30, 2014
