I've worked with these for 20 years and never seen or heard of one exploding. Suddenly I feel very glad of that. I suppose to overload one of those to the point of detonation takes more than one wall socket.
Then imagine the fun you can have, being a citizen of a non-EU non-Schengen country whose government had in place visa waiver agreements with most Western European countries before Schengen came into force. These agreements are still in force. The Schengen countries are obliged to respect them, regardless of the 90/180 limitations and regardless of time already spent in other Schengen countries. And there's a convenient chain of nations, from Scandinavia down to Spain, every one of which says they'll grant you a 60-90 day visa on arrival.
If you can prove you were legally in each one of that chain of countries, and in the country you're in at the moment, it's possible for such a non-EU citizen to stay in the Schengen area for nearly two and a half years. Legally. Visit the UK somewhere in there, however briefly, and with the right timing you can reset the clock entirely.
And then try explaining that to the NESB plod who asks to see your passport.
