Fiber optic lamp

I had unplugged my bedside lamp a few days ago. I had forgotten that I unplugged it, and tried turning it on tonight. It turned on momentarily, then went out. At first I thought the bulb might have gone out, but then I realized it was unplugged.

So why did it turn on momentarily? The AC/DC converter must have stored some charge in there and kept it for the past few days. Scary!

worst thing even .. one day i put the adaptor plug in my mouth and got a huge electric shock ... there are big capacitors inside ac/dc adaptors which store charge
