USB Killer was developed with innovative new technology that has never been used before, and it all fits into what appears to be an ordinary USB memory stick.
Inside the drive is an inverting DC/DC converter that charges several capacitors to negative voltage. When this voltage is reached, the converter switches off, and a transistor opens to discharge the voltage back into the USB port.
The makers of the USB Killer claim that their device can kill 95% of devices with USB ports – but Apple laptops are not included in the 95%.
Not every device is vulnerable to a USB Kill attack.Apple, they say, has already implemented technology to protect its products
The USB Killer will destroy nearly anything you plug it into. Don’t try this at home.
