I'll edit this first post so the best descriptions are added to the first post to make it more user-friendly.

Creature double feature : how to turn off the headlight or to double its power !

Well tested Vectrix Inrush Current Limiter Designs

This chapter is for describing Vectrix VX-1 Inrush Current Limiters ( ICL ) that have been reported as working well for repeated use.

If you want to discuss alternative ICL ideas, but have not actually tested them in repeated practice, then discuss them in the other chapters first.

Original Vectrix Inrush Current Limiters

A book page to discuss any of the original Vectrix Inrush Current Limiters.

If you happen to have knowledge about, or access to some of the various Vectrix Inrush Current Limiters (ICLs), then please share!

It appears that there have been at least three different (?official?) Vectrix Inrush Current Limiters.
