[time-nuts] Line Voltage frequency Interface morphed to batteries

Hey, John, got any idea of the DC to DC converter that charged that
capacitor? What voltage did it put out? Or the time it took to charge
it? Guarantee that you won't light a flash tube with 1.5 VDC.

Move on.

Recently, I took an old disposable 35mm film camera appart. It had a
flash, powered by a 1.5 V carbon-zinc AA battery. Inadvertantly, I got
across the terminals of the flash capacitor and got a hell of a shock.

Had the current gone through the right (wrong?) place, I could well be dead.
