Is there anyway to buy the NEC in an electronic version so I can view it on my IPad? Thanks
I think so -- go to nfpa.org
Yes, you can buy a PDF version and use a PDF reader on an ipad to read it.
Subscription to to NEC Plus is closer to what they used to offer in earlier editions. It is an on line application so you must have internet to use it - not so much of a problem for smartphone users unless you don't have signal either - it happens out here in Gods country.
Included is 2002-2011 NEC editions as well as handbook commentary that can be toggled on/off if you desire to see or not see the commentary.
Also included is 2000-2012 editions of 70E.
Throughout the NEC there are links to UL related materials - particularly white pages relating to section where the link is located. There are also links to associated ROP's where there was changes.
If a section refers you to another section - that section number is an embedded link to that particular section - just click on it to see what it says in that section.
With subscription they sent a soft bound cover NEC also, subscription was about $130/ year I believe. I don't think it is too bad considering what you all get, and is available to you on any computer with internet access - just have to remember your user name and password.
