Video: Wet Circuits' "Waterproof" Power Strip Is Anything But

Remember this goofy video? It features “Dr” Jolin in some of the worst dubbing this side of the USA Network’s Kung-Fu Theatre and a power strip that apparently can withstand the ravages of water. The strip costs $70 and, to put it succinctly, it does not work.

Test this thing out two ways: first by pouring water on it and then by dunking it in a bucket. Both times it stopped working – presumably shorting out – and then started working after the water drained through. However, it simply does not work when initially exposed to water.

For $70 I’d expect a bit more usability out of this thing. As it stands, the best thing about this junk are the videos. I would not recommend this to anyone, especially at the price advertised.
