    And moreover... just how bright does it go?

    This bloke, is, frankly, a bit mental and he's got the hint of the naughty school boy having a joint round the back of the bike sheds about him



    Watch it when you have the full 11 minutes free.

    In short, its VERY bright, VERY hot and then he puts it outside to light up his neighbourhood :)

    Viewing gold!

    he loves to overclock the crap out of everything... his love of excess voltage is legendary ;-) But this light bulb one made me laugh constantly. He's just short of barking I think

    Dagenham, then?

    National Grid can probably track him by voltage dropout!

    Yes, very bright but, also reminded why I very, very rarely waste my time watching You Tube videos.

    Followed Photonicinduction for a few years now - he is mad and also very British. Love his videos. Worth a watch as he has done some cool stuff with very high voltages and amperages, like melting ring spanner’s, firing up mercury arc rectifiers etc, all in his loft conversion :lol:

    If slightly mad engineering based videos is your thing and you haven’t come across AvE or Bigclive then I would recommend checking out their channels :thumb:
