Fishing with electricity

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

If you watch the second link you will hear a soft singing noise when he closes the "switch". There will be electronics chopping-up the battery DC and using an inductor or transformer to step-up the voltage.

If you Google, you will find a range of suggested output voltages, both DC and AC. 300V chopped DC is typical.

The guy who was killed was probably just using mains power with a long extension cord - just the active wire would be enough - but deadly,!
