To do you any harm needs a certaing level of current, from memory 100mA is very likely to kill you.JimB
But i think 30mA is very small. A 9V battery would produce more. My solar panel produces 0.5A.
The standard threshold for dangerous voltage is about 60V. Below that, no worries.I am just wondering what actually is used to determine the electric shock. We have current, voltage and watt. For example, I have these:
cableA = 1A, 240V, 240watts
cableB = 240A, 1V, 240watts
Which one will shock a person?
Does it depend on voltage, current or watts?
100mA is already 3.3 times overkill.
Safety circuit breakers (detecting current between live and protective earth) are set to the safe side of 15mA.
30mA will kill for sure.

I was taught that at 70 ma you are in pain and can't let go because you muscles are contracting, at 80 to 90 you get burnt, at 100 to 200 ma your heart goes into ventricular fibrillation and it takes paddles to save your life, CPR won't help, over 200 ma and your heart clamps, once the power is removed, CPR may save your life.

Electric Current Needed to Kill a Human
Nope, I would say at 200ma you would be totally fried! Infact, even 30ma is extremely painful, even lethal ... (In my case, it was extremely painful, luckily it only got me through the hand (15kV 30ma neon sign transformer))
6ma across the heart is enough to kill ...
It depends on the substance being called plastic.Wow, deadly electricity. Can i touch a 240v/240W/1A wire with a plastic(3 cm squared) which i am holding? If yes, why? Since the plastic is a resistor.
What nobody has mentioned is the path through the body.
Hand to foot is one thing. Most of the current may not reach the nerves near the heart.
Hand to hand, most of the current may indeed affect nerves near the heart. I've always read the path through the body is important. At 100ma all bets are off
