Just to let you guys know, you convinced me it wasnt worth me opening them up. Mainly for the reason that i did not want to have a shocking experience attempting to make a few dollars.. So i just cut the cords to re-use on something else and put the to the curb this past thursday night for trash night. I know what 120 VAC and a running lawn mower coil feel like and i'm sure a couple thousand AC volts feel even worse then either of them..

Well, then if its DC i imagine it will hurt worse but like i said i dont want to find out.. I dont mind an occasional 120 VAC zap bc i can recover quickly and it will make me think, why in the am i doing this live??? lol but i may not recover so easily from a HV shock. I got hit by coil packs on a V-6 engine one time and it felt like someone punched me and that was only probably a few hundred volts DC..

Actually, ac can do alot more harm. We are dc, and, ac makes the muscles twitch.AC will defib your heart, and, can easily kill you. DC is dangerous, but, it has been aptly proven that ac is more dangeerous.
