...flashlights, of course.

Wow...you guys really went off topic on this one (I only veered off road a bit). Warning...do not stick wires into electrical sockets that are not meant to be done so.

Now...Haro... how long did it last or is it still going?

You really should use lemons. We made a lemon clock last a month in my electronics class.

Want a lesson in torture testing? I had a Radio Shack RC car a long tie ago, ran on 8 AAs. I wired in another 8 just to see what would happen. Thing went really, REALLY fast, then caught on fire....fun while it lasted, though...
