well, what I do against the static is that i "tap" the car before it zaps me.
like after you exit the car and trying to close the door, you would get zapped by static. And I find statics to zap most effectively when you are just few millimeters away from the conductive stuff(like between your hands and the car's body)
So, if you give it a good "tap", or "smack" to the car, and not fearing the static, it does not really "ZAP" you. You still can feel the static but it's so minor It doesn't bother me.
I dont' know why, but maybe your brain can't digest both zap and touch of an object at same time. Or maybe static has to do with distance of conductors or is just not as fast as electricity....
But all i know is that I give a gentle "tap" on the car handle/door after I exit the car, and I don't complain of static that way.
you just need to come in contact with the door with faster speed. So you can touch the door with quicker speed and push close it. Doesn't necessarily have to "slap"/"tap" the door.
lol, i never shared this with anyone else before so please do tell me what you think if you ever tried it. : )
and i thought those rubber strips work.... so they don't work AT ALL?
