Better lighting for maximum boom-vision.
This is a 1000uF capacitor blowing its cover off completely.
Subscribing will encourage me to blow more stuff up.

A 1000 microfarad capacitor hooks up with the incorrect polarity at 5 amps power active, the pressure is building 5 amps is passing. The case is deforming and that's what i call a good result.

    As schoolboys we used to get old strip lights , take the big capacitors out , wire a 240 to 12v transformer in reverse and connect to the main fuseboard bypassing the wire fuses in the house .
    In 10 seconds or so you got an explosion that once sent a metal bucket lid 100 feet into the air and left a 2 foot hole in the lawn .
    Also the neighborhood thought the IRA were throwing bombs at the local army barracks .
    Great fun .

    Electrolytic paper shredded? Check.
    Magic smoke released? Check.
    Schmoo splattered on your desk? Check.
    Yep, a good result.

    Does this actually work? Let's see.

    Wow!
    A "Noise Emitting Capacitor!"
    That's SWELL!

    More like macrofarted! Good show, I expected the brown shmoo to seep out.

    Clive got bitten by the cap go bang bug 😛

    5A reversed polarity at how many volts? 25?

    Get the Slow Mo Guys to film it.

    The capacitor obviously has failed the test for the years class of "how not to be seen"

    High see smoke.
