More destructive fun?
« on: March 15, 2015, 03:52:58 pm »
I have a suggestion for an episode. Test surge protector power strips to their limits (and beyond!), similar to the high energy multimeter destruction episode  :-BROKE Seems like a good way to explain fuses, MOVs, ect. And blow stuff up. :D

Well, there's certainly photonicinduction, if all you want is to be entertained.

However, there is also a good reason to test the power strips, but that's a job for Consumer Reports, not Dave.  I certainly do want to know which brands hold up to their stated protection claims and which do not. Consumer Reports would likely do a good job of it, since they have the lab specifically setup for this kind of testing (i.e. consumer products that might be dangerous). They also have the budget.

Dave, on the otherhand, could choose to do an instructional video on circuit protection in general. The topic comes up here enough times that it would be a worthwhile video.

Yah, i knew someone would bring up good ol' photon. It isnt really dave's normal thing, but sometimes doing something different is neat too. Also, i thought he had released a protection tutorial...

I've done some testing of lightning protection circuits in the past, it's a shame that I don't have a video of a solid 5mm copper bar being evaporated.
