In a series of posts, I explored the power of electric appliances, and how to prevent or mitigate the potential hazards that come with them.
This time around, I wanted to look at a particularly common problem that can be avoided with modern appliances: charging.
When you plug in an electric appliance, a small charge is generated, but if the charge is too high, it can cause a circuit to break, or even explode.
When a charging circuit bursts, it releases energy, which can cause damage to the appliance.
To help minimize this, the appliance’s charger is designed to protect against the explosion of a charging component.
To learn more about how your electric appliance will handle a charging situation, we’ve created a handy infographic that explains what you need to know about charging.
