Introduction: AC Transformer Shocker
This is my first instructable, so go easy on me.
In this instructable, i will be showing you how to convert an AC power transformer into a shoking device.
Step 1: Needed Materials:
An AC power adapter that you are willing to take apart (i think any of them should work)
A button/ switch
A square 9v battery (with good charge left)
Another square 9v battery (dead or one that you want to destroy)
Minimal electronics and soldering knowledge and skills.
Step 2: Removing the Cord From Your Transformer
the easiest way to do this is to but a flathead screwdriver on the cord, and hitting it with a hammer.
Step 3: Cutting Around the Prongs for Easier Opening
In this step, you will take your dremel and cut a rectangle around the two prongs that go into the wall.
*CAUTION* the smoke from this may be toxic, do not breath it in!
Step 4: Open the Adapter
You will need to put the Flathead screwdriver where the cord was coming out of from before and hit with a hammer down the sides until it snaps open. then take the actual thing out
If yours had a circuit board on the end where the cord you removed were, you will need to take off the circuit board, and save the two wires that should be attached to the circuit board.
Step 5: Attatch Wires Directly to Adapter (unnecessary If Yours Didn't Have a Mini Circuit Board)
Take those two wires ive been telling you so much about and solder them to the two wires that were attatched to the circuit board
Step 6: Attach Your Button
In this step, you will need to attach the button to either of the two wires you soldered on in the last step (or just the ones that were there if you had no circuit board)
Step 7: Taking Apart the Dead 9v Battery
For this step, you will need to start by using wire clippers or pliers to get a piece that you can peel off.
You will then peel until you can take off the positive and negative clips. (you may need to snip it if it is attached on the inside)
Step 8: Finish Wiring the 9v Clip
In this step, you will need to put a glob of solder on both of the leads on the bottom side of the piece you removed from the dead battery. Then you need to attach two wires facing the same way.
Step 9: Test and Finish Your 9v Battery Holder
Test your battery before you put it in the clip, then test the two wires coming off of the clip to see if it was a good solder connection. Then wrap in electrical tape if you wish.
Step 10: Wire the Battery Clip to the Rest of Your Tansformer (now Almost a Shocker!)
For this step, you will begin by attaching the other wire from the button to one of the wires coming from the clip. Then, you will solder the other free wire on the soon-to-become-shocker. and you can cover the wires you soldered together with electrical tape at this point.
Step 11: Test to See If the Shocking Device Is Working
Now you need to put your working 9v battery into the clip so you can test. to shock, press down the button; and when you let go, it will perform the shock. to actually shock someone, or yourself, you need to have both of the prongs touching part of their skin when you let go of the button. if everything works, you are ready to put it in the case!
Step 12: Put the Button in the Case
First, you will need to locate a good spot to put the button. then you will need to take the drill bit for your dremel, and cut a hole there that is the right size. then you will have to glue it there with hot glue. (i just taped it there, and now i have to take it apart and redo that part)
Step 13: Close Her Up!
for this step, you will put the shocker back into the original case with the button. then you put the top back on and tape it together, or glue it if you are confident you will never open it again
Step 14: Enjoy!!!
although this has been a long instructable, i hope some of you will try this. it's really fun to shock people. two things you should try: you get one other person to touch one of the prongs and touch your arm or other part of your body. then you touch the other prong and do the shock. you should both be able to feel it on where you are touching the prong, and where you are touching each other to close the circuit. and the other thing to try is to shock the veins/tendons on the bottom of your wrist, it should make some of your fingers twitch!
