A thunderstorm or a power failure may cause a malfunction in a smartphone or mobile device that is being recharged at that time.
Is your mobile phone or laptop ready to withstand an electric shock? USB Killer 3.0 lets you check it, if you dare.
The third version of USB Killer, the pendrive that electrocutes PCs, smartphones, cameras, or any other device to which you connect it has just been released. USB Killer 3.0 has capacitors that charge for a few seconds with the power it collects from the USB port, and then releases a 220 volt discharge over the connector, several times per second. If the port is not protected against downloads, it directly merges.
