Title: Pre exploded surge protector.
Post by: G7PSK on June 04, 2016, 12:57:58 am
This must be a new venture for the Chinese, instead of electronics which blow up on you they now save you the trouble and supply them pre-exploded. :-DD

Big clive has found one at least.

Uh, what the heck?
Any theories on how this could have happened?

I'm guessing the cardboard piece wasn't properly placed in a previous one, ended up stuck to the machine and eventually caught fire,

Quality control at its finest.

Pre exploded burnt surge protector.
I have never seen anything like this, must be be a very rare event. If visibly damaged products like this get to consumers, you can only guess what else goes though quality inspection unnoticed.

I might agree that his knowledge in electronics is pretty basic but no way would call him idiot. Also I never found any of his videos being fake.

If by pretty basic, you mean desinging lighting control boards from scratch, repairing moving heads, and thoroughly explaining every device he tears apart, sure.
[sarcasm]I suppose by that logic dave is mediocre then?[/sarcasm]

If you mean those: http://www.bigclive.com/guides.htm (http://www.bigclive.com/guides.htm) yes it's pretty basic. I won't say my judgement about Dave to not start shit throwing but in some video he said that does not consider himself being some kind of electronics guru.

Hmmmm.  Give us a link to YOUR videos so we can compare.
How exactly did he "fake" the heat-sealed bubble pack?
IMHO, you attack says much more about YOU than it does about Bigclive.

There are a few of them, but they are obviously humorous, granted it's dry humor, so those with "different" brains might not be able to pick up on that and think it's genuine. The same type of person probably thinks electroboom is serious.

I insist on what I've said. I know him only through this video and I really don't care, was the first and last I've seen from him. If someone presents himself on the web like this, he must assume someone might call him a retard. Sorry for you fanboys of stupid fun which is not funny.

PS: Electroboom actually is funny. And yes, my brain is not tuned to that kind of "fun" above.

It was just a stupid joke from him, LOL.
under the video:

And for those who actually read down to this level... The actual result of hooking a (really crappy) 100W LED directly across 240V was so boringly controlled that I had to beef it up a bit for a second take with hidden resistors underneath for some sparks and pops. See if you can spot them as I completely lose control of the LED at least twice during the video.
No good quality LEDs were harmed in the making of this video. Mainly because I can't get any.

That joke video notwithstanding BigClive's soldering technique without using any third hands or clamps is pretty amazing to watch. I keep finding myself trying to hold something and feed solder with one hand like he does. The results are usually disastrous.

I swear it's like the guy has two thumbs on his left hand. :-+ :-+

So basic that he is the one that give the name to the joule thief.
He may have some dry english humour, that maybe some of the US people are not able to cope with, but he is clearly not incompetent. I'm sure he knows more than most people here. It's not because it love to tear down chinese "crappy" things that he know nothing, on the contrary, he tends to explain usefull things (and I think he have soldered more thing than Dave in their own channel :p)

So how the ability to give some catchy name to the very basic circuit designed by other people tells something about person's electronics skill?

Nobody says he is incompetent. I don't find him telling ridiculous BS about something he doesn't know. On the other side, what he explains is pretty basic either.

One strange thing is that Clive had reviewed/teardowned a few thing just a few weeks/month before dave received the same thing, that's funny.

Chinese write 240V on their 100W LEDs. They write everything, just buy it. Their soldering is horrible, it looks exactly like the one he did. Yes, chinese stuff out of the box yellow bubble wrap envelope looks like it was soldered by butchers doing that.
It is funny and entertaining. And it is on youtube, so its not like you went to the theater (not cinema), and someone is making fart jokes. Because some of his videos are the electronics fart joke level. And there is nothing wrong with that #serious.
