4000 V (not a typo), which automatically rules out almost all the
low-priced things to start with.  There are some that are lower-priced
than the one they recommend, but nothing cheap, and the lower-priced ones 
all have low-current sensors.  

We've considered hooking up a resistor in parallel to fool the thing into
believing there's adequate current being drawn, but I can't say I'm very
comfortable with the idea.
