RIP Fun Little Project!!


We had to get up early last week and I asked Denise to bring the clock so I could set the alarm.

I just said to unplug the power cable, and this she did.

I then grabbed a power supply cable that was plugged in.

As one gets older one will have a few or many “Brain Fart” moments in your life, this was one.

I forgot that the clock used a USB power supply, i.e. 5 volts, and I plugged in a 9 volt power supply.

Being a cheap clock (sub £5), with no over voltage protection I fried the two chips!!  {sigh}.

RIP Fun Little Project.
