# Build a World's Smallest Electronic Shocker! version 2.5

16 Steps

## Step 16: Have fun electrocuting people and don't get caught by the police!

Okay, now that you had built a shocker with a useful LED indicator, what is stopping you from going outside and electrocute your friends (and perhaps strangers)? Also, watch out for police who is looking for trouble!! (That wouldn't be good!)

To use the shocker, the victim must touch the live -400v wire and the +1.5v wire to get a unpleasant shock...

The pain of a 400v shock is the equivalent of getting a really nasty static shock from a car. But the shocker gives a continuous shock...
Also, if you want the shocker to give more painful shocks to the victim, you just simply increase the input voltage!

So, if you give it:

• 1.5v input = 450v output.
• 3v input = 900v output.
• 4.5v input = 1200v output.
• 9v input = 2700v output. (OUCH!)

Beware the higher voltage you give to the shocker, the sooner it will burn out. If you give the shocker 9 volts, it WILL not survive longer than a few seconds, or it may immediately blow up... It is the best if you feed your shocker only 1.5 volt, it may hurts less, but it won't burn out.

There is one funny idea that Kiteman thunk up...

What you can do is wire up the shocker to a battery with a switch and make the 400v wire and the 1.5v wire long and then box it up in a small plastic case (except the long wires) to prevent shocking your self...

Then put the shocker in your pocket and have the long wires running down your jacket or long sleeve and put a insulator like a bandage on your finger tip to insulate you (so you don't shock your self). Then put the bare ends of the wires on top of the bandage and tape it down.

And now you are for some fun! Go into the crowded school corridor and touch people with your electrified finger tip, you might not want to touch the girls as they have a bad habit of screaming their head off if they get an unexpecting surprise, but go ahead and touch them if you want...
Or maybe go into the dinner queue and shock people as they slap the mashed potato on his/her tray...

So, what other funny and things can you think up for this small shocker?

won't the wires burnt out from carrying 450v???

Insulate the insides of an altoids container and have it hooked up as a shock box that completes the circuit when opened. ^_^

girls scream boys hit you. its your choice.

One of those 3V camera bats. (not button) bateries could give it a smaller profile...

Im going to put conductive pads on this and tell my friend its a "lie detector"...
and then shock him.

can this shocker really hurt or kill or something?
Plasmana (author) in reply to rocketlauncherJun 7, 2010. 1:00 AM
No, it does not kill, it hurts a little.
I learned that the hard way...
so it hurts like a little zap but nothing too bad? cos i dont wanna hurt my mate really

Never tried it, but I'd imagine it'd be like a shockey pen.

would it be possible to send the blueprints somewhere to get a pcb made for this? if so and where? btw is there a way to make this on a breadboard (protoboard) or to even make this with a 6 pin transformer? because everywhere around here i cant get the free camera shells anymore. and i have like 20 6 pin cameras

just for you to know: you can run it at 9V but you must use 1/4W resistors not 1/8W, with an output of around 1300V
Plasmana (author) in reply to N3v3rm0r3Jun 19, 2010. 1:47 AM
True, but as you (presumably) going to run the shocker at 9v for a short period of time, then it does not really matter.
ARJOON in reply to PlasmanaNov 29, 2010. 12:33 AM
you can also use 2 switching transistors to drive the transformer. for those who haven't got any transistor left.
N3v3rm0r3 in reply to PlasmanaJun 19, 2010. 11:28 AM
charging two 250V@1000μF capacitors is no short period of time...... i tried to run the shocker (with no modifications) at 9V but it got on fire...... Ow and another thing, i should replace the 100Ω resistor with a higher value? I fear that I'll blow the LED up and ruin the whole protoboard (I like stable things).
tribulus in reply to N3v3rm0r3Nov 15, 2010. 6:54 PM
no, you would not blow the LED with a higher resistor.
RAYED says: Nov 26, 2010. 8:17 AM
ok where else can i get the transformer or will any 5 pins would work pls help i really wanna make it
mabster says: Jun 25, 2010. 9:56 AM
Is this the one that can kill you if it goes through your heart or is that the big black capacitor?
Plasmana (author) in reply to mabsterJul 2, 2010. 10:37 PM
Just for a second, I thought you're talking about if the shocker PHYSICALLY go through your heart, it can kill you. :P But nevermind. They both can be lethal if misused.
N3v3rm0r3 in reply to mabsterJun 28, 2010. 7:22 AM
both....
rocketlauncher says: May 11, 2010. 9:33 AM
I've just made this little thing but it DOESN'T WORK!!!!
I am sure everything works but the taser itself doesn't work!!!  :(
Plasmana (author) in reply to rocketlauncherJun 7, 2010. 12:59 AM
Obviously you have done something wrong...?
rocketlauncher in reply to PlasmanaJun 17, 2010. 9:18 AM
I checked and double checked the circuit but it still doesn't work!
N3v3rm0r3 in reply to rocketlauncherJun 17, 2010. 11:34 AM
try to reverse the connections of the transistor, it happened to me and after i did that it worked just fine...
arkirymbai says: Apr 10, 2010. 5:24 AM
i want to make this for my girlfriend studying else were in the country......can you tell me how much volts will stun a person temporarily.....quite worried bout her safety...
bears0 in reply to arkirymbaiMay 28, 2010. 2:35 PM
its not volts that kill its amps you could have 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 volts as long as it doesnt have the amps it wont kill you unless you get trauma from the pain or have a pacemaker or something i dont know how to make it low amps though i wish i knew
JeremyC in reply to arkirymbaiApr 10, 2010. 9:31 PM
dude thats pretty horrible to do that to your girlfriend, it hurts bad, do it to your friend not ur girlfriend
SimoMies in reply to JeremyCApr 11, 2010. 10:33 AM
Sorry, but I couldn't help but burst into maniac laughter :D, I guess that arkirymbai ment that he makes one for her girlfriend TO USE :) And, to arkirymbai, this probably isn't the right instructable for you if you wish to build such thing, the tiny transformer couldn't handle the hunderds of thousands of volts it takes.

hi
Plasmana (author) in reply to jkpalmer123Mar 21, 2010. 8:10 AM
And..?
MoshBoshKid says: Jun 11, 2009. 9:27 AM
this is cool i attached it to my dads chair with 2 pins leading through it so when he sat down lovely shock time hahahah i got grounded for 5 months
hyudryu in reply to MoshBoshKidOct 11, 2009. 11:38 AM
Haha nice idea. but i used a camera and i took out the capacitor and attached 2 wires. it fits nicely into a small altoids tin
Plasmana (author) in reply to MoshBoshKidJun 11, 2009. 10:37 AM
Haha! That is too bad... You had good fun in the first place :-)
crio2c5 says: Sep 30, 2009. 11:20 PM
quite true of what u said.................the pins should not be like needles.......... and whats d tranister equivalent ?
jake1993 says: May 31, 2009. 5:37 PM
instead of leaving the two shocking heads bare and sharp, I found that it was easier if you put a little bit of solder on the end so that when you did go to shock someone it wouldn't "stick" in to them
