Introduction: Candy Box Taser

Picture of Candy Box Taser

Its a disposable camera taser in a candy box. small, dicreet, and as strong as those other disposable camera tasers. (good for shocking your friends(enemies))

Step 1: Your Materials

What You Need:
-Candy Box(one that can fit a battery)
-a disposable camera (FujiFilm Works Best)
-thin Wires
-Soldering Iron(along with soldering resin)
-small screws (for the shock prongs)
get all these!!

Step 2: The Circuit Board

tear the camera apart and find this(circuit board) and take it out!

Step 3: Put It Todether

Picture of Put It Todether

im lazy so i jus drew this to demostrate what you have to do
it may be hard for some of you, but youll get it sooner or later

Step 4: Show Off

Picture of Show Off

if you got it and made one good job youre smart! i made it un-understandable cuz im lazy, and to keep idiots from making them, if they wanna make one let them make a big bulky one so we cud see them coming at us with it.

once you get good you make all sorts of em and maybe sell them, one guy said he'd buy one off me for 30bucks, i paid like 8bucks at most.

check out the pics!!

The expression "taser" keeps popping up and anybody using it should know the difference between a stun gun an a taser

GoWolves11 (author)hinge2017-06-27

It's not a stun gun either.

pyrofirelighter (author)hinge2009-04-20

so what is the difference?

hinge (author)pyrofirelighter2009-04-21

Well,there's only one thing connecting taser and a stun gun.High voltage.Otherwise it's difficult to find anything which they share.One fires darts with taser,which need to hit the target to have any effect,any taser is easily 3 times more expensive than any stun gun and much more expensive to "maintain".A stun gun is a device which you have to press against a target to get "the spark"going.So we're talking distance and easiness to use.It's difficult to think about homebrewed Kodak "shockers" in terms of a stungun.

taser gets more searchers :P

sunjum (author)2013-08-15

Hey, could you please take a clear picture of the circuit board? i dont wanna mess around and potentially shock my self

chewbaccaa (author)2010-11-07

does this hurt?

qwaz (author)2009-11-04

what would be a suitible plastic box for it?

RGM La Paz (author)2009-05-25

what sis u use as contacts

Gh{O}sT (author)2009-04-25

I can't see the pic of the circuit board clearly D:

carscanpoo (author)2008-07-08

oh come on dude when i first made my tazer i shocked myself 5 different times and it didnt hurt too much. if you want a heart attack go swimming in gas then taze yourself.=)

it depends on how you touch it. i mad eone while back and zapped my forearm. nothin really. but if you touch the two contacts with one finger each from each hand, then currect travels through the chest, and any organs that might be there.

still wont kill u, tried it!! w/ my pot-head friends it wont kill you, its the amps, it doesnt have enough

you also have to take into account any cardio-vascular problems such as those that might be prevalent in the elderly or ill

yes don't shock any one with heart problems just to be safe

DrWeird117 (author)carscanpoo2008-08-30

THAT'S spontaneous combustion!

El Mano (author)2008-12-16

For those of us (like myself) with a very basic understanding of electronics and related items (including capacitors) what happens to the victim?
How much does it hurt, does it leave any lasting damage (I read shockhappy's comment about "taser tattoos"), are you completely positive this will not kill a person, etc. I don't want to be beaten to a pulp because I tased someone into last year.

sadunpererarules (author)El Mano2008-12-19

leaves two small burn marks where the two pieces short through you. but nothing serious. Arm might be sore for 15 minutes. but it has around 500V of shock, according to mine anyway. but Volts dont Kill you, amps do. like a car battery has 12 V but over 6 Amps, and real tazers have like 900000000000000V but a small number of amps. so no need to be scared. its really cool once u make it. but make the one with the camera. looks hardcore.

the worst damage from this is two burns and a your arm, no one has ever needed CPR or been killed it's not 500volts it's 300volts at about 18milli amps.

dont car batterys have like 300-400 amps?

where did you get a switch?

radio shack, for like 3 dollars for a tiny switch, or you can steal it from there its not too hard just slip it in ur pocket when no ones looking, its too easy

OfficerKarl (author)shockhappy2008-08-09

I hope you know that minors will read this. You are contributing to young peoples delenquincy... :)

shockhappy (author)OfficerKarl2008-08-20

my bad, Im a minor too btw :)

OfficerKarl (author)shockhappy2008-08-21

Who cares... isn't it just fun to shock people (and/or yourself)? :)

bombmaker2 (author)OfficerKarl2008-12-27


OfficerKarl (author)bombmaker22008-12-28

One time I actually shocked myself when I was testing a spark plug... ouch...

bombmaker2 (author)OfficerKarl2008-12-29

ouch 6k going through you

OfficerKarl (author)bombmaker22008-12-29

my finger slipped and I touched the metal, but the dumb part was when I did it again... talk about oops...

bombmaker2 (author)OfficerKarl2008-12-29


so what , anybody knows that if you take something and put it in your pocket without paying for it is called " stealing"

Still, telling people that it's easy isn't a great way of reinforcing their anti-crime values.

OfficerKarl (author)Grey_Wolfe2008-08-29


But some people need something to initiate it, like, oh I dunno, a website... I really don't want to argue about anything relating to human psychology because it never makes sense :(.

baddjj (author)shockhappy2008-10-12

Are you an advocate for theft? That's not very bright.

DrWeird117 (author)shockhappy2008-08-30

I know. No one is EVER in there.

nh7tr (author)shockhappy2008-08-11

you are correct, it's funny thats i understand this and im 14

ima try a mouse switch, reeeealy sensitive....more evilnessishyness!

limpach (author)2008-09-21

Oh that is brilliant! A device designed to shock with an electric current, so you house it in an altoids tin.

Father Christmas (author)limpach2008-12-28

hey hey hey. it really is brilliant, i did it a while ago lol

More instructions are need especially due to the hazards in the step(s) or the product(s) of this instructable. For your legal safety and the safety of others please include the following: 1) A clear warning of the high voltage hazard 2) A clear warning of the medical dangers Note: I believe that it is extremely dangerous for you to leave the capacitor in the circuit. The flash capacitor are made to rapidly release their charge and the amperage they can output + their voltage rating have a extremely high possibility of causing heart failure as well as many other harms. The device will still produce quite a shock if used without the capacitor.

shockhappy (author)nf1192008-02-11

haha what r u like a 90 yearold guy who lived a goddamn sheltered life haha its harmless i mustave shoched myself 100 times i know all bout capacitors yea i may be 16 but i know all bout that crap, its so weak it woulnt stop a pacemaker if u tazed it dead-on iight so relax you stinkin old

nf119 (author)shockhappy2008-02-11

One, I am only a year older than you. Two:

Hand to hand resistance is around 17 kohm (extremely dry skin, flesh has lower resistance). Flash capacitors are rated for 330 volts but charge up to around 300 volts.

Ohm's Law state V = I * R which rearranges to I = V / R. Thus I = 300 / 17000 = .0176 amps. Thats 17.6 mA. Its takes 30 mA across the heart to kill. These calculation does not take in account of lower resistance of moist skin and tissues inside the body.

Just think 120 V AC (which is safer than DC) can kill. And most outlets only let through a couple of amps. Photoflash capacitors are design to pulse out much lager currents at ~300 V DC. They are more dangerous than AC Outlets.

Three, I was only trying to help you.

bombmaker2 (author)nf1192008-12-27

no clue what all that means but only 7ma can kill across the heart

shockhappy (author)nf1192008-02-14

haha i havent killed any one yet,i dont worry bout that shyt, takes the fun out of it... the tazers i make leave marks they hurt like hell, my friend agreed to be held down while we "tazer tattooed" him, pretty crazy... hairs stopped growing within a 2cm radius of the tazered area, u made a pretty cool intsructable yourself, i felt like pissin someone off at the time haha dont take it personally iight bud?

Derin (author)shockhappy2008-03-30

try it on me:)u cant im faar away

MrMystery96 (author)nf1192008-03-01

i agree. this taser idea puts out some serious shocks. but i can also see how shockhappy sees it. the shocks hurt but in most cases don't or won't cause damage or death. but if i had to choose whos side im on its definately nf119.

solidacid (author)shockhappy2008-04-22

actually AC is way more dangerous than DC, thats why they use it for the electric chair

oh1134 (author)2008-09-15

sweet... I wana get one of thoses. More portable (and dangerous then the smallest nerf gun...

The_Vinninator (author)2008-07-26

does anyone know the specifications of that capacitor???
