As a child I abused my train set transformer that way - top fun making my own brief-lived light bulbs, but it didn't do my transformer any favours, and it buzzed horribly thereafter.gerty said:Or, if it's a big high current battery and you use a small wire, the wire will burn.
I did some work on satellite electronics. We built a charger/discharger for one satellite's NiCd battery. During discharge the voltage of every cell was monitored. When its voltage reached 1, a short was placed across it.Discharging thru a load and then shorting terminals is an approved long term storage method for NiCd batteries.
