 No, they can't. They don't even make a big shock. I can shock myself 30 times and not fell anything when I stop. I'm not sure how much voltage it is, but I'd say 1-2 volts.

nope tested it mine are 112 volts
 piezo's should be around... say 10,000 volts based on spark length

how many volts if my spark lenght was around 6 to 8 mm?

thanks,

depends on humidity and other factors, but yeah that would be about 10kV

No. It has no current just high voltage it is the high voltage which causes the spark
To make a small taser use a small transformer the wrong way round driven by a 555 timer circuit, plenty of simply circuits on the net
Well it does have some current, just not enough to kill you.

Hah, no but they do hurt a little. It's so much fun to shock people...
