Make a Shock Flashlight!

Heres a really fun gadget you can build! A Shock Flashlight!

It will give your victims a powerful but harmless shock!

With my creation of the How to build the World's Smallest Electronic Shocker, it is so small that I can fit it into a flashlight, and use it to give people fun shocking pranks!

This is going to be so fun to shock people with it, and I can guaranteed you to get laughs!!!

So lets build this fun device!

Also for the English people that may not know, a flashlight is same thing as a torch.
And please note that I am only 15 years old and I am not very good at grammar so if you find some parts of the instructable confusing, please let me know and I will try fix it.

Step 1: Get the things!!

All right, lets get started!
You will need...
  • A flashlight (torch).
  • A very small shocker (you can build one, click here!).
  • Tape (I used electric tape).
  • Some wires.
  • Aluminum tape.

And the tools...
  • Wire strippers.
  • Wire cutters.
  • Soldering iron with solder.
  • Hot glue gun with glue sticks.
  • Drill gun with a small drill bit.

Step 2: Ready, on your marks, get set, WORK!

Now, lets get to work!

Note: The design of your flashlight may be very different from mine, but I will tell you how I did it anyway...

First, I disassemble the flashlight.

Step 4: Install the Shocker...

Okay, I am going to put the shocker near where the light bulb is, I hot glued the shocker in place and put the -450v wire through one hole and the 0v wire in the another.
Then I attached the shocker's 0v wire to the light bulb's base, and attached the shocker's positive wire to a longer blue wire, you will see why I did this later in this instructable...

 I remember when I was 4 I was playing around with a torch and I electrocuted my finger with a 24-volt battery. It made some nodules. Man that as fun and hurt.

i did something like this, but i used a boxy metal oldfashoned flashlight, i converted it to the led technology and added a 300v shocker conected to a 150uf capacitor, but i'm not sure if it's too dangerous for using in animals or people, do you know if the capacitor is too big?

When I was in high school a friend of mine build a shock box. I don't know how it was made but I do remember him saying it had a mercury switch in it? I was the life of the party! I remember it had a little lightbulb in it that had mercury and was placed in a box wrapped in tin foil. When you shook it, it gave you a little shock. It was funny placing it under the tree Xmas morning and watch the kids shake the presents. Do you know what this could be?
I think he had a 120 volt to 9 volt step up or down transformer and the mercury switch pulsed the nine volt battery through that side to make the other side produce 120 volts and shock you.
what he means by a mercury switch is a little glass tube with a drop of mercury in it and two wires at one end and the mercury completes the circuit
Does this burn you? Is it safe to short circut the -450 and +"ground" wire?

I got an idea: what if you were to make it so that there was a conductively painted layer where your fingers would grip the flashlight, and the shocker pad in the button/switch?

Thats odd, maybe the wire broke off...

So I tried out Plasmana's torch. One thing to consider is how to make the tape less shiny and noticable. Perhaps a conductive, yet dimming coating exists to keep that "beat up flashlight" look.
Plasmana (author)  Z0t5 years ago
Yeah, I am going to try make some conductive paint using the information from this instructable.
