Exploding a Potato with Defibrillator Capacitor

at 5:14 am. Filed under Crazy Hacks, Funny Hacks, Insane Equipment


This video of a Potato Exploding with the discharge of a Defibrillator Capacitor is very impressive. The 54uF/4200V capacitor was charged up to 3000VDC prior to the discharge. If I ever have a heart attack I think I might just tough it out and hope for the best. 🙂
