I have always been trying to urge people to add more turns to their toroids to reduce the flux density.
Quite a few Forum members have tried this, and really liked the reduced idling power that it produced.

However I was attacked mercilessly by the "Inverter Mafia" for stating this heresy.

Apparently, big inverters always must draw big idling currents, because the Mafia Dons have built lots of inverters, dozens of inverters, hundreds of inverters, and all of them draw high idling currents, so this must absolutely be true.
