Step 4: The beginning of the hardest part ever...

Okay, here we go, build the shocker, the hardest part ever...

Read step by step through this instructable until you get to the end...

Okay, get all of the wanted components, fire up the soldering iron, turn on your work lamp, get a magnifying glass, and HERE WE GO!!!

Also I made a schematic and a design that should help you how to build a shocker...

Step 0: Start with a five pin transformer.

UPDATE - 9, October, 2008
I have improved the schematics, I hope it is easier for you to read.
<p>Relly nice! For those who bother with specs I use 220nF capacitor, b547 transistor and RL207 diode. Works fine! For now I use Arduino 5V pin and I obtained +- 200V. That's quite a deal!<br><br></p>
I pretty much used the same parts, except the diode, i used 1N4007, and the bc547 blew up somehow, and i tripple check if i have everything alright...
<p>Use <strong>BC337</strong> or <strong>2N2222</strong> instead BC547, and the Diode need High Speed type of semiconductor like UF4007 or 1N5819.</p><p>But my circuit work fine with 1N4007, just need a seconds for charging the Capasitor to make 300V at output.</p><p><em>I using 4V 1200mAh lead acid, and the 220R was replaced with 1,5K resistor, and 4,7uF/400V electrolite Cap instead 22nF</em>.</p><p>The result is wonderful but has give REALLY SHOCK! :(</p><p>Cheers :)</p>
<p>i dont have that cam so can you plz tell me the model numbers or that some number it would be a great favor. so please guide me mr.XYZ.......................</p>
<p>I made this, and I got about 400v output, but then all of a sudden it stopped working and made a bit of smoke. I looked and it turns out the transformer is arcing over between pins 1 and 2.</p>
<p>Use some mineral oil, MAYBE it works for a few seconds.</p>
I ended up desoldering everything from the board and then soldering the electronic components together without a board. The arcing was occurring between two very close traces on the board so without the board, there was no arcing. The space between the pins is about 1.5mm compared to the 0.5mm between the traces on the board.
<p>do someone here knows how to make a capacitor charger without a bug zapper or a camera? pls can someone say detail?</p>
<p>Make an oscillator, wire it up with a transformer or inductor and a rectifier.</p>
<p>Could the output of this taser be attached to a coil of wire and be used as an EMP device? </p>
<p>With a capacitor, yes you could, but it won't destroy anything.</p>
<p>What if I use a 300v 100uF Rubycon Photo-flash capacitor? Is there a certain resistor I should use or a certain transformer? Thanks!</p>
<p>Well, don't use it on people.</p>
<p>I did that with a 100V transformer, it made like 5kV till it &quot;only&quot; made ~500V. Btw you can use electromagnets / inductors from PSU's etc., i got an electromagnet here which is capable of a 3mm spark, but better don't try it on people.</p>
<p>may i know the specification of diode transistor and trnsformer used ///? plz tell me immediately</p>
how did you make out the pin of the transformer because I'm trying for weeks without being able to conclude anything
which diod you use
how did you make out the pin of the transformer because I'm trying for weeks without being able to conclude anything
so i wanna use a 1n4007 or some thing like that
<p>This site is terrible for printing out instructions. The pictures are obscuring the text. Terrible coding!</p>
<p>Mine is slightly different because all of these little transformers are different. test the pins with a multimeter to know you've got the right ones. But it's cool and it works!</p>
<p>Well, here's my circuit and I've problem that from where the battery is to be connected. ( I lost my track while dismantling the camera.)</p><p>Thank you.</p>
Thanks sir.. I liked your idea..<br>Plz keep uploading your projects..Beacause I learn a lot from these
<p>So you are only fifteen years old? Amazing..... Keep learning and experimenting but never forget to be imaginative! And have fun!</p>
<p>what kind of transformer is that? please reply</p>
Nice idea...
<p>can I use the transformer from a bug zapper ?</p>
<p>Those ones are normally 6 pinned transformers, I'm not sure if you can use the same diagram (also, the transformer from the bug zapper is bigger than the camera one). Of course you could use a Bug zapper circuit instead, just change the leads going to the part that you would use to kill bugs to some pins or whatever...</p>
<p>How would I add a push button to this circuit? does this charge then shock you or continuously shock you?</p>
<p>Put it between one of the battery wires <br><br>Example: cut the 1,5V wire in half and solder the button</p>
<p>If you tap it, attached to a 9v, with you have a major step up transformer(50x1 or greater, around there) it'll stop someone's heart no problem.</p><p>Pretty fucking dangerous to fuck around with shit you know nothing about.</p>
i improved,i dont know many volts because i test in my tester and my tester explode
<p>Amazing shocker. I shocked myself eight times, made me go buzzzzzzzzzzzz.</p><p>Thanks a lot. Let's ZAP someone.</p>
<p>can I use a 6 pin transformer instead?</p>
note to author and people who dont want to slaughter a camera:<br /> <br /> I think i found a possible subsitute transformer here:<br /> <br /> http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&amp;name=MT4135-ND<br />
lol, next time, read the datasheet, it is an audio transformer, not an voltage booster transformer. :)<br /> <br /> Im glad you at least tried finding alternatives <br />
as I recall, you have an 'ible on free samples. :)
hey, can anyone help? I made this, but as soon as I power it up, the transistir gets incredibly hot. so much so that the plastic melted. what have I done worng? I wired it uo exactly how it says, so is this irregular operation. and as far as I can feel, the output is non existent.
can you connect this to wire loop game ?? where are the line 1 line 2 terminals? please tell mee :)
a new take on the wire game. instead of an audible buzz, you would have an acual buzz. what I would do is put two plates on the handle so when the hand holds it, it completes one break in the circuit. then when the loop touches the wire maze, it completes the second bit
what part number is the transistor from the camera? is it NPN or PNP?
<p>mine only gives 37 v</p>
<p>very good instructable i figured out the fault in mine and its working now</p>
could anyone provide a link or tell me what kind of transformer i should buy? i had a look on ebay but all i found was this :http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/13V-Output-220V-Input-4W-5-Pins-Electronic-Component-EI-Power-Transformer-/330820953105?pt=AU_B_I_Electrical_Test_Equipment&amp;hash=item4d06772411&amp;_uhb=1#ht_2183wt_1141
May i know volume and code for capacitor, diode and transistor?
<p>transistor is d 965</p>
can YOU write mane or number for the Transistor. thmx EMAIL marek.milak@seznam.cz
