Ianman: Where did I mention transformers?

Maybe you didn't, but it's what this whole thread is about.

roadkillontheweb: High voltage, high current and bare hands.
Yes this guy will be found dead some time!

Melting metal over carpet is also a nice touch. He make take out a few neighbors with him?

The secondary is very low voltage, the real danger is burns from liquefied metal, and the primary isn't really high voltage either, but at least enough to get a zap.

Ianman: So does your garden hose spray farther when you turn down the water pressure?

Ianman: You CAN increase the amps if you lower the volts. 240 volts at 200amps is 48000watts, so 48000 watts divided by 48000amps means 1volt on the output.

It doesn't work like that.
Reducing the voltage reduces current which reduces power.
Order of operations, you suck at it...

I'm not sure if you're trolling, or if you're just ignorant to the point that you're completely oblivious to how much you don't know.

Seems like it's really low voltage to go with the high amperage. Not nearly as impressive as high voltage with high amperage. Laying a screwdriver across the terminals of a car battery would give a similar result until it melted the terminals or overheated the battery.

And, as with many of these videos I have to doubt he's pushing the power he thinks he is.

Yes, less than a year from now, we'll be hearing about this guy's charred remains.

Darwin is watching.
