In a celebration of reaching 10,000 subscribers on Youtube, I blew up some pieces of wire with my 2500uF / 2kV Maxwell energy discharge capacitor storing 4kJ of energy.

I also started a new dedicated slow motion video channel, please subscribe if you like to see more non-electronics videos recorded at high speeds: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCB2qu77PCr5i9zcs0sOhp4w/

Great work. The Specific energy of Nitroglycerin is listed as 6.38 MJ/kg so your 4 kJ explosion is equal to about 0.6 grams of Nitroglycerin, not bad! I've been wanting to do exploding wire stuff for a long time.
