Instructables

Step 3: The capacitor

to get the capacitor you are going to need the disposable camera(you can get these free at wal-mart. ask for the used ones.), soldering iron, and pliers.

1. open the camera and get the chip board out.
2. discharge the capacitor by touching the two leads together with your pliers. you should see a spark on contact. after that it will be safe to touch. make sure you take the battery out.
3. you can either desolder the capacitor out or just cut it out with the pliers. cutting it out is easier.
4. if you dont want to make the smaller charger. the next step will tell you how to make one alittle simpler.
