The maximum potential is determined by battery chemistry and number of cells. In the Tesla, the nominal potential is 375 Volts.
at least at one point in his life. Check the credits on 2112.
There are a HUGE range of beverages with vastly varying flavors which fall into the category of "beer". How many styles have you tried? There are lots of alternatives to the fizzy yellow stuff sold in 30 packs.
I can imagine that a big imperial stout, doppelbock, or barleywine might make a great marinade for steak.
A better candidate for sneaking THC into beer would be a GMO hop variety, as hops are the closest botanical relative to Cannabis.
Those folks will put anything in a beer....and make some fascinating brews!
when it comes to having to pay for things like contraceptives or abortions.
How about this? You can withhold the percentage of your income taxes that provide abortions and contraceptives when you allow people who oppose war to withhold the percentage that gets pissed away on the military budget. Deal?
Compare what happens to multiple brands of cheap meters vs. a Fluke when intentionally whacked with high energy pulses:
Notice that ALL the meters were damaged in this test. But the Fluke simply died gracefully, without exploding, catching fire, etc.
[quote]If you're not double checking your meter reading against a known live source before and after your test reading please stay out of a live panel. That's electrician 101.[/quote]
Yes, as well as being an OSHA and NFPA 70E requirement.
But you know as well as I do that it doesn't always happen. And that fused leads would greatly increase the risk of an accident in the real world.
So if your probe fuse blows without you knowing it, and you go to check if that wire is live, you get a nice zero voltage reading, regardless of whether the circuit is dead or not. The potential consequences of this should be obvious.
Input protection for the voltage/resistance ranges of a properly designed DMM consists of gas discharge tubes, MOVs, PTC thermistors, transorbs, etc. The internal fuses are for the current ranges ONLY, and need to be the HRC type for safety.
Properly designed input protection is the FIRST place that the cheap DMM makers cut corners. The second is properly molded and sealed enclosures, to contain the shrapnel in case of a catastrophic failure. Both are required to achieve proper safety compliance for a Cat III or Cat IV meter, which is what you want for measuring mains voltage.
A good illustration of what happens to cheap meters under high energy fault conditions is here:
Maybe a few high end benchtop ones, but all their handheld DMMs (which is what this whole issue is about) are well under the $3K level. You can buy an entry-level Fluke DMM for less than $150 last I checked. Most of the mainstream models are $300-$400.
And if you actually make your living using instruments like these, they are worth every penny you pay. Even if just for the security that the thing isn't going to blow up in your face when testing mains power...
especially if you have a whole bunch of these toilets in one location.
The solar power thing is neat, but an incinerating toilet is nothing new. Have seen them at remote locations like mountaintop transmitter shacks, etc, where there is no water or sewer service available:
And yes, they STINK.
