EEVblog #1334 – Mystery Dumpster Teardown

Mystery dumpster teardown time! With the most amazing mechanical mains power switch you’ll ever see! ...


  1. Sweet upgrade, Dave, but I’d have been careful to use the white LED’s. (I do understand the blue ‘matching’ … our girlies are all about the ‘M’ word, right?) You understand that blue light is proven to stimulate brain function, those photons send a ‘wake up’ signal which has been shown to inhibit melatonin production. Just read this week that brain researcher’s suggest a minimum of one hour away from blue light (phones and the whole gammit) before bed to avoid ‘waking up’ the ‘ol cranial mush. I’ve found it a must for me. If you and your cute little wife become a bit restless at bed time in just might be the blue glow by which you brush your teeth! Love ur blog, bro, as a semi retired automation, instrumentation & control EE it’s a fun view. Kind regards. Jeff. Charlotte, NC

  2. So Dave, is this something you can legally do in Australia (without being a licensed electrician)?

  3. Ah yes, had that same problem with finding the tubes. We’ve got quite a lot of electrical shops here in London so eventually found the right ones.
