What doesn’t kill you… Doug Aamoth sticks tweezers in a wet surge protector.

Occasionally I find a product claim so outlandish that I scoff at it. When I saw the Wet Circuits surge protector claims a while back, I thought how I wouldn’t do what they were doing in the video. (If you have not seen their videos, they demonstrate them by sticking tweezers into them while they were wet, as in under water).

I even shared the link with a few people, and they too laughed at the thought. Some considered that there were ground fault breakers in place, but, the lights remained on, etc.

Welllll, one guy decided he would test it:

Great little video…  And no, I’m still not going to test this power strip in that manner!
