Default Usb I Need You!!!

This question is really weird i am completely aware. Is there a way to purposely shoot out a power surge out of a usb port. Basically what i am attempting to do is send way too much power into my usb mp3 player and therefor cause it to blow up like nitro. If anyone is aware of a different way to accomplish my main goal i would love to know.

You want to purposely blow up your MP3 player? Why may I ask?

And yes it is really weird!

Well, it is pretty much worthless. It only charges when it feels like it. Rarely turns on. I am also extremely bored. So i am merely attempting to injure it further and make it more difficult to repair therefore giving me something to do

Get a usb cable and cut it in half, find the +5v / gnd wires and hook em' to a 12v battery

or you could just return the mp3 player as a defective unit and get your money back... your choice.
