Two power outlets in series... by A3.
Hi, can I connect two 110v outlets in series to double the voltage?
If you were to try connecting the positive to negative points
from one socket to another and then connecting the free ends
to an appliance you would probably blow a fuse.
All of the
sockets in a house are from the same outside source which
means that if you connect the positive end of one to the
negative end of another that would create a short circuit
with the outside transformer, thus blowing a fuse and possible
starting a fire.
The best thing to do would be to SAFELY
(contact an electrician for details) connect your appliance to
a voltage doubling transformer and then connecting that to the
outlet. It's also possible that your refrigerator or oven
outlet has 220 volt AC.
