Better lighting for maximum boom-vision. Taking YouTube "shorts" to a whole new level.
This is a 470uF capacitor venting forcefully from its safety pressure release.
Subscribing will encourage me to blow more stuff up.

A 470 microfarad capacitor, let's apply five amps through it with the wrong polarity and see what happens its swelling. It's exploded and spewed its guts.

    You're going to be finding capacitor innards in that room for the rest of your life at this rate, lol… On another note, I'm not entirely sure why I find these as entertaining as I do. But if you happen to find a large tantalum laying around, that might be fun to watch.

    I'd love to see this done with one of those car audio 2F (and greater) caps.
    Maybe do that outside, though! 💥

    I used to work in an electronics factory and occasionally boards would go through the line with a capacitor reversed. This was decades before automatic pick and place machines became commonplace. The result always got laugh when the boards went into their test jigs.

    Perhaps a christmas tree decorated by electro's going boom, boom, pause, boom boom, fizz, boom…etc.?

    In jurisdictions where fireworks are outlawed, would that include capacitors? 🤔

    Nice visual demo of how the safety valve on top works to protect the capacitor's neighboring components from being IED casualties (if you're lucky enough to get the failsafe failure mode)

    Ave/electroboom shorts 😉 because we ain't afraid of the shmoo tips hat to the Scott <3

    I hate that youtube is pushing shorts, but these, these I enjoyed. They didn't feel like you'd made the effort of making a 'short', more just, "Hey nerds, check this", and it works.

    Its defunctness is absolute.
    (& excellent use of "shorts")

    Love it! Okay, how about the classic metal fork in a toaster (while metering the AC input?)…

    LoL I bet those stink. Not as big a Boom like the 1000 one. Still satisfying to see. 🏆

    Swelling and explosion upon wattage application is also how they extract purebred shmoo
