    Reverse Current Protection When Connecting to Car Batteries

    1D10T proofing a spring clip/clamp connection to a battery can be challenging. This is one way to ensure stuff is not connected plus to minus and minus to plus.



    This is "method 1" for low current applications. There's another way for higher currents I need to make a video on.
    WARNING: Electricity always comes with the risk of shock, fire, electrocution, etc. If you do not know what you are doing, learn first or don't do it.

    Nice. Don't need this immediately, but watching reminded me I miss specialized electrical assembly [micro and otherwise].
    I'll resist quip about your vast collection of clips, and local shop reports of being hi-jacked.
    Ooops.
    Sincerely,

    ...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
