They must have altered it since you read it. The volt is now derived from the mobile phone.

A 55-volt electric current can kill in certain circumstances – that’s the equivalent of 10 mobile phones.
Science is never still.

Pardon my memory, but my recollection from my days as a student of elfin' safety, was that 110V CTE, gave max 55v shock and was as such unlikely to result in any nastiness due to the inherent resistance of the human bean?

Quite right! Hot tea would scald your face. Besides, it would dye your chin a funny colour.

Shirley issuing a parking ticket to a police car is what passes for epic lols among traffic wardens civil enforcement officers?  I expect they thought it would get a "ha ha" bin response, rather than kicking off an unstoppable bureaucratic process.
