VIDEO: Reverse polarity battery test


Hey everyone. This week’s video is about batteries again, but I’ve decided to do something a little bit different this time. Something exciting. Something dangerous!

I though I’d see what happens when you put batteries in the WRONG WAY ROUND. Will there be a fire? An explosion? Some leaking chemicals? A matter/anti-matter detonation that rips a hole in the space/time continuum?

Obviously nothing too bad happened, as I survived for at least long enough to get the video off my camera, upload it and then write this update about it. But am I using a laptop in a hospital bed? Have I still got all my fingers, or is this all being typed with my nose? Or dictated to a nurse?

You’ll have to watch it to find out. There’s no point me going to all the effort of uploading it if I just give the ending away here.

  • I love the humor, but the LED in the flash light is a diode. Diodes only allow current (from the battery) to flow one direction. The man in the video was safe the entire time because of this reason alone.

    I love the coffee cup penis protector. . .I can’t believe he took it to that level. This video ranks with my all time top 10.
