To be honest that "nice audible click" pisses me off when I hear it in the middle of the night.

Now it makes so much sense, that a computer I had automatically switched the power supply's switch to "off" position, whenever the power plug was disconnected. Used to drive me crazy, because I always forgot it and the computer was already shoved under a desk before I tried to turn it on.

I didn't expect this to be great, but, I was wrong. This was way better and presented like a video made by a TOTAL PRO should be!

Nope, the clicks there to tell you when to start running up the stairs when it goes dark. Almost like the gun at the start of a race.

You should hear the sounds coming from my workplace mechanical room, when the 480VAC (1000+ amp) switchgear connection closes. Hooboy...that'll get your attention.

I knew the answer about a minute into the video, but still enjoyed watching the rest. Extremely well done as always 👏

Ok Youtube, I give up, I'll watch it even though I'm near 100% sure the reason is to quickly break any arc that might otherwise cause continued conduction and you know, weld together the conductors you are trying to separate...

I find it weird that you press the top of your switches to turn them on. I can see the use in a control panel because if something fell across the panel, gravity pulling the thing down would hopefully turn the thing off - making it safe, but it still seems weird to me when where I'm from the convention is "down is on".

I don't know if you are aware but those very safe British 3 pin sockets and plugs do still arc. I know it wasn't mentioned in the video.

*pokes Nintendo Switch* not sure how this will extend its life but it's worth a shot anyway, otherwise I might have to switch around to a different unit, one that clicks for me.

Explains why texting near a gas station is prohibited. This was when cellphones still had keypads unlike the touchscreens these days.

Sulphur hexafluoride is only about 3x better insulator than air but yes, it provides some advantage. Some sealed low voltage contactors are also filled with it.

That explains why I keep having to replace the door switch in my microwave oven. I'll bet opening the door while the oven is running would cause a damaging arc.

Why don't power outlets in the US have a switch to turn them on and off?. Every other country on the planet has them afaik.

Is there any sort of switching inside a dimmable smart bulb or is it just using a microcontroller to limit current? If there's no switching, that a bad thing?

One day, when I used the light switch in my room, I came to the idea, that I could actually record that clicky sound and use it for the UI buttons in my video games.

Fuck I hate when YouTube autoplays your videos and I'm forced to hear your voice. I do want the content, but get someone to present it for you--or even just do text only.
