Here's a little discharge adapter that I made. It's a 5K, 3W resistor, heat shrunk with a banana plug at one end and a banana jack at the other end. You can use it for discharging most devices, especially HV caps. It's a safe habit to practice...a lifter is not comfortable. I believe that banana plugs and jacks are still popular with instrumentation...I have not purchased any modern test sets recently. I just hate it when the industry does that...change interfacing, look at USB connectors, can we not be happy with one style... I mean the name starts off with the word universal, what the hell is universal about USB...it ain't the fuckin connector?
