The answer is none. There are no moving parts. Maybe a diode will wear out or fail...that's very rare.
I feel like I just got trolled lol
I need better self control
Don't be so naive. How do you think electricity is generated? It's the movement of electron that creates current.
How do you think poorly made transistors in Chinese sweatshop often blown away prematurely? It's the moving of electron inside the semiconductor that creates heats and often interfering with foreign particle that creates excessive heat that breaks down conductive channel in the semiconductor.
You have slightest idea why diode fails, or you know something about electronics that you want to further discuss in detail?
Don't be LOLing at your own xxxxxxxx, because you make yourself the biggest laughing stock of the world.
