Fun : IEC Connector Lets Loose And…..FLAAAAMES! :D

ADVISORY: Mains voltage, 240v! It wasn’t just the IEC connector which blew up in this video. :-( You’ll see in this video, what else got wrecked! :-(

Yep, this is part two of when I fizzed-over an IEC connector. Part one was a bit disappointing in the ways of sparks and pops. I’m glad that the shake-reduction widget fixed that video quite well, as it was very shaky!

Right, let’s get this connected and fizz it RIGHT OVER. I WANT FLAAAAAMES! :D

Also, while I was filming this, there was a thunder storm brewing-up off in the distance!
It was getting close and I was wondering if I could get this fizzed-over and up in flames before the storm arived….If at all!

OK, so I crank things RIGHT UP onto the Full Range. On my little 10A puppy of a variac, Full Range is about 270v. I wanna blow stuff up. NOW ! :D

It’s fizzing-up quite nicely… The smoke is building, then… FLAAAAMES!

Yes! I wanted flames, and I got flames! YES, PEOPLES! :D I blew it up!

Sadly though, it wasn’t just the IEC connector that blew up in this video, as you’ll see when you watch the vid! :-O
Click this link to see its very own little video. :-(


Yep, I popped it! :-( The IEC connector fizzed-over, then took it out. Blew it to bits. Now it’s no more. Permanently ruined, never to be seen again in any more vids. :-(

On a plus-side though: I popped that IEC connector! Fizzed it RIGHT OVER. :D
How Ssssatisfying! :D

On that note, I do wonder if it is possible to fizz-over an appliance plug? You know, those moulded-on BS 1363 plugs that are only rated for five amps? :D

Shall I? Shall I get one (from somewhere, no idea where!) and fizz it to ruins? :D
Click the link to see a BS1363 5A rated plug get fizzed-up!

My goodness! That storm is on its way! QUICK! PUT THE TOYS AWAY, BATTEN-DOWN THE HATCHES! INCOMING! :D

Gotta go, It looks like it’s going to get rather wet around here!

Thanks for watching. I hope you enjoyed the FLAAAAMES!
