    By the way, they’ve now released the USBKill 4.0, which now allows you to destroy a PC remotely. It also supposedly works though USB-C and Thunderbolt now.

      USBKill 5.0 will probably be able to destroy any device remotely and with Bluetooth instead of connections

    Problem is that USB connector is usually connected directly to the (cpu) chipset, therefore it kills chipset and maybe cpu and rams too.

    The USB killer sends high voltages through the data ports, as it would make sense that the anode and cathode pins on the USB have diodes attached on the ports disallowing backflow or surges. So that's why there is no data to be accessed, you've fried the Data pins only, and not the power ones.
