Breaking In a Power Supply (Overloading Electronics)

With a new power supply comes the tedious responsibility to ensure it’s up to the job. In this situation you could:

1. Undertake the boring, ordinary approach to load testing it…

or b) Ditch that and go straight to destructive testing.
Not to the PSU, but to anything else lying around.

The logic behind the latter option is simple. If the power supply survives where everything else is destroyed, it passes the test.
In other words, grab a bunch of components and stick them on the output.
(Be aware, some employers may not approve of this methodology.)

    I did that with a wifi router, plugged up a sliced DC cord into a router then grabbed a sliced AC 10A 125v power cord, linked them and blew the router.

    A good video to know how electronic parts burn, to anticipate how they will be damaged, and to take care of who causes them to fire
