How to Destroy American Electrical Appliances in Germany

PART II: Success.

European outlets kick out a mean 220 volts of electricity. American appliances, like my electric razor, are only designed to handle 110 volts. I was told by several people my appliances would be ruined if I tried them in Europe, so before I moved to Germany, I bought a dozen grounded European to American outlet adapters from for $1 each.

When I arrived, I tried one out and tried to brick my electric razor. Then I tried my razor for a longer period of time while in Munich. This video is the result.

    Some appliances are auto voltage sensing, that shaver doesn't seem to be one of them. Universal appliances will have something like Input: 100-240V ~ 50/60Hz written on them.
