I blew a plug through getting a Samsung plug and plugging it in a Xbox controller

Engineers that want to do the right thing sometime get a surprise.
For example, to turn ON and OFF a brush motor, it appear like a good idea to minimize the arcing on the brush by smoothly increasing the current.
It turns out that brush motor, either DC with permanent magnet or AC with electromagnet, will last much longer when the current appear abruptly.
The mechanical shock and arcing help keep those brushes ready to make better contact.

So what’s up with all these videos being proceeded by Michael Doomberg political ads?

My house has 1 of those loud clacky switches but it dosent run a single light... it runs all the outlets in our living room, we run several kilowatts through it on a regular basis and it's always fine, it too has probably been in use since the 50s

“But why so clicky clacky”

1 day ago

Anyone remember the rumour it costs more every time you flick the switch.. Like it's better to keep it obit longer rather than hitting it off the back on soon after..

......7 minutes of bullshit to learn that the clicking sound a switch makes is from the speed of the connectors i feel cheated

Fun fact I learned recently: The Nintendo Switch's joycons click because a prototype that used magnets made a nice clicky sound that they wanted to keep. :D

Honestly microwave switches today are affordable, reliable and quite frankly sci-fi cool(which is kinda like normal cool but for a limited group of people).
Why are we still flicking mechanical switches like assholes?

Why am I not a normal person and move the switch really slowly so it doesn't make the noise? Why?

I wish he would digress more. He touches on stuff I’m interested in but doesn’t make videos on those topics and says it goes beyond that video.... okay. Cool but make a full video!

Oh so that's why I shouldn't flicker switches.

Why don't US power outlets have switches on them?

I am so sick of Big Electric lying to me about the nature and function of switches! Practically every other damned day there's another switch click related scandal all over YouTube, and I for one have just had ENOUGH.

This channel is a goldmine.

Say watt?
Electricity when you've pulled the plug: "Dang that's thicc"
Also what I've learned from the video: Punch the switch. Or when you use it normally and somebody is like "STOP CLICKING SO HARD" like... bruh...

Can you do a video non "why light switches turn light up, downward position" in the UK? Since I moved here (12 years) I can't get used to it fully.

I love these videos. I have an insatiable desire to learn and these videos are facisnating
