Five years ago a fire burned down my cousin’s 245 year old historic house in Delaware. She lost her daughter, granddaughter, a baby that was being babysit, and their dogs. The cause was an electrical fire that started when a sofa pinched a lamp cord connected to a faulty GE Westinghouse breaker. The fire started on the ground floor and ripped through the house in about 15 minutes because of the aged and dried timbers, and narrow staircase. So these days I don’t trust an individual electrical component such as a breaker or fuse, or safety feature. I double up on everything. Every outlet in my house is protected by its own inline fuse, and that circuit’s distribution breaker. I have built-in timers for many things. Every space with a door has a fire and smoke detector. Some people think it’s overkill, but I sleep very soundly at nightIf it makes you happier: I have owned as many as four e-bikes since August 2019. No issues with chargers or batteries. I burned my house with a fag.
(During the fire, neighbours helped me remove e-bikes first, batteries next, chargers last. Nothing e-bike related was destroyed by fire).
