Hello and interesting post
I don't doubt that something happened, for instance as temperature increases or decreases resistance in certain materials change (principle behind
thermo couples) , as well as line voltage, if there were no voltage regulators, could cause current to change (ohm's law is I=V/R where I is Current,
V is volts and R of course is resistance, therefore if Voltage increased so would current, if the resistance decreased, current therefore would
increase due to the inverse relationship).
Now, the bulb exploded ... that happens in disney movies, but not in real life and certainly not with todays LED's or small voltage incandescent
bulbs. Why? Well in your home when a bulb burns out, does it explode? no. The filament simply burns out or "opens" resulting in an open circuit.
Same with LED's kind of, but that's a whole nother solid state electronics discussion of PNP, NP, PN junctions etc.
So, like I say always, show me facts and data, a video of the bulb exploding would be nice. I say hoax or embellishment in my opinion.
Thanks for posting
