Hey /sci/, is there any way to pull electricity from a rubber coated electricity-carrying wire without splicing into it?
Most of those cables are shielded so you will not be able to.
However if it's not you just stick another unshielded cable next to it and voila. The electricity will be induced to the other wire.
That would be exceptionally weird. Most powerlines are not HVDC. HVDC two lines per pole, AC, 3 lines per pole.
You are probably trying to get electricity from a cable TV line.
Either way you are trying to do something illegal
You cant pull the electricity from it directly if thats what your asking. If you had an electromagnet and the knowledge base of an electrical engineer to set it up you could feasibly pull some energy out of the field and convert it to electricity but it would be expensive as fuck and you couldnt get much from a device that size
