  • Reuse Parts of an Energy Saving Lamp

    I would use insulated pliers. Also, you could use an insulated screwdriver to touch both leads of the capacitors, but that will definitely cause a spark, or you can touch both ends across a resistor to bleed the current out slower. 1K should be fine. Wouldn't go lower than 300 ohms, might blow the resistor. More sparks.
