  • 6:50 LoooooL the "what can I do with it" almost knocked me out, as a boy (10 years old) I connected two cables to a 4.5 V block and hung them in a schnapps glass with water, then I watched the air bubbles and wondered how to do it That could increase, so I took a 220V cable and did the same thing, I secured the cable well at the edge against slipping. Then I put the plug in the socket and lo and behold, what a surprise, air bubbles over air bubbles and there glass got very warm over time. so .. now it comes .... so i thought to myself "what can i do with it", i took red candle wax and it crumbled into the water .. how nice it was, like a lava lamp .. the only problem was the cable on the glass slipped, the ends came together and the glass was blown empty at the speed of light so to speak, the red candle wax was spread all over the ceiling while my room was just repainted in White , I don't know how it went ..... whether I can fix the damage so that could nobody saw it.. or someone spanked my ass so that I forgot the rest. ** just a small sample of my disastrous life ** I will never forget :-))) The last time I got a shock was 2 years ago when I was working on a 220 V Hotgun, I pulled the wrong plug out of the socket to be safely , It was amazed when i touched the heating element, luckily i learned to do this kind of work with just one hand at a very young age !! At the age of 13 I started repairing tube television sets in the neighborhood, that was 45 years ago. I got the first electric shock when I was 6 years old, when I tried to get a toast with a knife with a wooden handle and metal rivets from the toaster and immediately recognized the context after the shock " >>damn rivets

  • Hi mehdi I think the reason of blowing up this circuit is puny little transistors which is can't handle more than 150w of power when you connect it to battery voltage is higher than usual for a moment and higher current pass through the circuit maybe irfp260 is much better when you use lid acid battery as power source, i made this circuit and i realized two things involves in blowing up first gate diodes must be TVS type and transiators must be at least 300w rated of power , isn't it right?
