It is good to know if the tiny shocker is on or not, by adding a wonderful invention called the "LED", so you don't risk get bitten by the shocker again!

Disclaimer: This shocker can be dangerous if used improperly, it gives out about 400 to 450 volts, so I am NOT responsible if you or anybody are injured or killed by the shocker, the responsibility is yours...

Improved instructable!
I have been asked by comments and email how to attach a LED to a shocker to indicate it is on. So I then decide to make another instructable how to do that.

And, I have copied and pasted everything from my original shocker instructable onto this instructable and greatly improved the text on every step, also added more steps and replaced some pictures. I am hoping it would be less confusing to you and understand the project better so you can have an higher success in completing this project. :-)

If you do find anything confusing or an error on this instructable, please let me know and I'll fix it.

Step 1: What type of disposable camera should I use?

  • The best disposable camera you can use for this project are the "Boots" or "Polaroid" types, because they have everything you need.
  • The "Kodak" type is a bit more difficult, you need to find the type that uses an LED indicator, NOT a neon bulb indicator, those types will not work. Also, the LED type cameras uses SMD resistors, so you will need to find or buy one 220 ohm and one 100 ohm resistors.
  • All other types of cameras like "fuji" ect. will not work because they have an different and/or more complex circuitry.


<p>I drew the corrected schematic first. Just check it, comparing with the photographed build of the circuit.</p>
<p>The second schematic is wrong. I mean the one with the inside of the transformer coils. </p>
<p>How many amps does it have?</p>
<p>How many amps does it have?</p>
Step 3: Slaughter the camera!<p>*looks at camera* &quot;This shall be my victim...&quot;</p><p>^ I laughed so hard at this! :)</p>
<p>Awesome build! Reminds me of when we were young and just ripped the plastic off and used a disposable as a taser. </p><p>Shared this on our facebook and twitter pages, thank you for posting! :) </p><p><a href="https://www.facebook.com/CircuitSpecialists/" rel="nofollow">https://www.facebook.com/CircuitSpecialists/</a></p><p><a href="https://twitter.com/CircuitSpecial" rel="nofollow">https://twitter.com/CircuitSpecial</a></p>
<p>I recently did something like that with some edition and it was pretty cool </p><p> Also a taser is a brand call it a stun gun</p>
&quot;if it STILL does not work, well I guess you can you can go very angry, and smash up the shocker with a hammer and get over it.&quot;<br><br>I like your humor.
<p>Can i use an audio transformer instead of a flash transformer?</p>
I made it! Thanks for posting this! I put in a box with foil pads and wrote &quot;balance enhancer&quot; on the side! People keep trying to touch the pads while standing on one leg!
<p>i was wondering if the transformer are pulse type or not i want to make one i have some pulse transformer lying around</p>
<p>i have burnt my transistor... can i use any other transistor which is similar with my burnt one?</p>
I ve build it but it doesnt work. the led Lights on but no voltage at the output.<br>Do u know why? please help. .. thx
<p>Are you using a burnt out capacitor?</p>
<p>You can pass me how this circuit because I am developing a project that will use a similar circuit.<br>thank you</p>
I want the proper specifications of transformer.
<p>do you know where i can get these disposable cameras other than buying one ($9.35 at Walmart!!!)</p>
<p>I got like 20 for free at wallgreens</p>
WWWHAAAATTT! i was just there! Dangit!
<p>Just ask them for some used cameras, they already developed the film in them and usually you can get a few of them for a few bucks. All the stores do with the cameras is return them to the factory to be recycled.</p>
i tried asking the lady at the photo center at walmart and she said that the camera manufactures now require used cameras to return to their &quot;Warehouse&quot; for 'prossesing'. so, in short, i wasnt able to get a free used camera.
Just in case, look at other stores that develop photos. You might get lucky and end up returning with a few of them. if not, try Amazon or Ebay for them.
<p>can you use recifiter diodes</p>
<p>and does this charge then shock you or continuously shock you?</p>
<p>It continuously shocks you. If the capacitor was attached it would be one big shock</p>
I plan to use this as a self-defence device.... Any suggestions.....?
<p>It will not have the power to stop someone, this is more like one of those prank tazers</p>
<p>can you make instructions on how to attach a momentary push button?</p>
<p>It's very easy, just solder the wires onto both of his shocky leads, and then solder up the momentary switch</p><p>| |</p><p>+ +</p><p>+ +</p><p>| |</p><p>The +'s are the leads on the switch and the | is the wire</p>
<p>I'm disappointed. Mine gives out ~260 volts. I had to use the whole PCB that's in the camera as it has more parts than your camera. Tried using only the parts described in this instructable but it wouldn't work :(</p>
<p>I'm not disappointed in your instructable, I'm disappointed in the lower voltages of these cameras. </p>
<p>Wow! Great Instructable, very easy to follow and extremely well written! I just made this and put it inside a small PVC pipe. Thanks for posting this!</p>
<p>this is a map i find with 1f16 and 2sc5607</p>
<p>hey bro i made it but dont work!!!????</p><p>i search in web and find a map.</p><p>same as your map but Diode 1f16 and transistor 2sc5607</p>
<p>Name of the diode? </p><p>Can i used D965?<br>thanks in advance :)</p>
<p>hey bro i made it but dont work!!!????</p><p>i search in web and find a map.</p><p>same as your map but Diode 1f16 and transistor 2sc5607</p>
Would this work http://m.ebay.com/itm/321095009296?cmd=VIDESC for the transformer
Hi what type of diode is being used because I'm buying my parts separately
does the disposable camera have a battery housing/holder that could be used for this?
<p>can you use the other capacitor? because then you'll get way more power!</p>
<p>A great disguise is a small mint tin; I used one from starbucks. You can fit all the components inside, including the battery. I affixed the leads to a 9v battery connector. When you flip open the top of the mint tin, the connector is exposed and facing up and very easy to press into skin.<br><br></p>
<p>I disassembled a kodak camera and I saved the components but I couldn't figure out how to connect them again, thanks for the instructable!</p><p>Also can I use another transistor, a 2222 for example? Or the high voltage will make it useless?</p>
As long as you dont put capacitors on there its ok.
