Learning electronics can be confusing for some people. I think it would be cool to do a video where you take a circuit and starting from the voltage input, follow the path explaining what each component does with the power and why it works that way.

Personally I think text with illustrations (or animations) are a better way to learn electronics. It is easier to read and reread text at your own pace rather than someone rattling on leaving you wondering what they meant by the last statement and unable to relate it to the current statements.

I also think you learn faster by doing not just by watching or reading.

Most of all you just have to get started...

Give me a simple circuit and I will explain it starting with the "voltage input" as you call it.

But ultimately what you need to learn are the basic electrical concepts and how they are measured.

@robotbuilder @tensecondsdown I agree, I learn from the blog, the YT videos are eye candy and may or may not get my interest. 

First computer 1959. Retired from my own computer company 2004.
Hardware - Expert in 1401, and 360, fairly knowledge in PC plus numerous MPU's and MCU's
Major Languages - Machine language, 360 Macro Assembler, Intel Assembler, PL/I and PL1, Pascal, Basic, C plus numerous job control and scripting languages.
My personal scorecard is now 1 PC hardware fix (circa 1982), 1 open source fix (at age 82), and 2 zero day bugs in a major OS.

While this is a very good idea, I don't really think it fits the format of my channel. This is more of a basic electronics theory video, one that would fit in with a series of lessons on basic electronic components.

Thanks for suggesting it, but I think I'll give it a pass.
