Introduction: Real 1700 Volt Camera Taser


Alright we were looking for videos like this online and youtube and really couldn't find anything that related. We saw several people making videos of "tasers" when in reality it was just charging up a capacitor then waiting to recharge the capacitor and do it all over again. The only problem is that the capacitor tasers, burn more than they shock. We were able to figure out how to make a continuous shocker. We'll show you how, if you don't feel like reading the whole steps and procedures, watch our video and it cuts it down to about 6 minutes :) have fun and be safe, remember electricity is dangerous exercise caution when you are doing this... please.... PLEASE don't shock your grandma




Step 1: Getting the Supplies

Alright all you need for this one is a disposable camera circuit board and a 220ohm Resistor (Red Red Brown)

The first thing that you need is the capacitor, The capacitor is the Yellow Pill looking thing in the Camera Circuit board. Usually next to the flash.

Then you need the small transformer, usually found next to the LED or in between the LED and the Flash.

You will also need a Diode, the circuit board has 2 of them, all you need is one. (Be careful with the Diode it is sensitive to Heat so you don't want to burn it while trying to desolder it)

Also you need to get the small transistor also found next to the transformer. (be careful with the transistor as well it tooo is sensitive to heat)

Lastly you need the 220 ohm resistor symbolized by Red Red Brown and you will need about 4 jumper cables, and a 9 volt battery.

Step 2: Soldering the Transistor


In order to solder all of this together you need to place the transformer on a helping hand station. If you don't know how to make one, check out our Ultimate Soldering Station and we teach you to make a very good one for cheap.

The first thing you need to do is place the Transformer with the 3 Prongs on the tops side, and the two prongs on the bottom. Otherwise our instructions will not make sense. Check the pictures for an example.

First thing you need to do is solder the Transistor to the top left and the bottom left of the transformer. The transistor has the flat surface facing away from you. So you need to put the middle Leg to the top left leg of the transformer. Then the bottom leg to the bottom left leg of the transformer.


Step 3: Soldering the Resistor



you need to attach the Resistor to the top Right end of the transformer and the Top middle leg of the transformer. Cut one of the legs of the resistor short, then leave the other one normal size, you will need to solder the short let got the Top Right, and the Long leg to the middle, just make sure that you solder close to the base of the resistor, and leave the long leg like a connection. See the picture for how to.


Step 4: The Diode

Okay now on the bottom right connection, solder the diode, make sure the diode has energy flowing INTO the transformer and not away from it, there is a small gray band that shows where the energy is flowing into.

Once you have that connected, the LONG leg of the Resistor needs to be bent inwards towards the diode. You will connect the two connections with a capacitor.

Step 5: The Capacitor Connection

Okay now you need to get the Capacitor, and connect the Long leg of the resistor to one end of the capacitor and the other end of the capacitor to the Diode. Check the picture. This will complete the circuit for all of your connections, next will be adding extensions to the legs etc.

Step 6: Adding the Extensions

Okay So now that you have the Capacitor on the circuit, then you need to add two extensions that will be connected to your battery. The Negative Portion of your battery will be connected to the open leg of your Capacitor, the Positive portion will be connected to the Middle top leg of your transformer. the one with the Capacitor, Resistor connections. Check the picture.

You need to add an additional wire to the Diode and Capacitor connection. Look at the picture for a visible, but you need to add it right where the diode and capacitors connect together. this will be the first part that shocks you

and the very last step is to connect a cable extension from your positive battery lead, this will be the second part that shocks you.

Step 7: Testing It Out


Okay, many people think this doesn't work, it's because either they are using a diode that has been burned out, or a transistor that has burned out, or two cables are touching each other etc. Because of how sensible the materials are you might have to try it a couple of times before you get it to work right.

Add a 3 volt supply to the battery terminals, then using a volt reader touch a positive lead of your battery and the red wire that shocks you. You will get 750 volts of energy. a 9v battery gives out 1750 volt of energy.

Step 8: Last Step

The last thing is to tape the circuit board on top of the 9v battery and leave the two shocking prongs exposed on the outside. You can even add a switch between one of the battery terminals in order to save battery life and so it wont be 'live" while you are carrying it. Believe it or not, this will shock you with a very nasty shock and it will continue to shock until one of two things happen...

You run out of battery

You stop touching it.

Hope yall have fun with this, watch our video for a tip on how you can rig your door to shock intruders etc. it's almost at the very end of the video.

do all disposable cameras use 5 pin transformers? or is there a specific one i should get to make this mod? a reply would be well appreciated!! :)

If that little yellow pill looking thing in your picture is the capacitor, then arent there two capacitors?(meaning the big canister looking thing, because that is a capacitor.)

author
Divergence (author)tesla man2014-12-15

yes there are 2 they are different types, the big one will give you a hell of a shock!

I heard somewhere that a camera transformer will burn out if connected to a nine volt battery... I shall test it.

author
unum (author)unum2011-04-25

I only got 105 volts? using a nine volt for the preliminary reading. why, any thoughts on the subject? I have a multimeter that only goes up to 500 so maybe that is it.

a 9v battery will burn it out, tried it.

Please tell us the specific names of the components involved, for instance, "220 ohm resistor", that would be excellent. please do so! :)

The materials are sensitive, not sensible, and I think that the parts would burn out with a 9 volt, butI got 145 used cameras, so I have plenty of parts XD

bears0 (author)XOIIO2012-04-20

can i have 5? :-)

author
XOIIO (author)bears02012-04-26

Just go to a film development place and ask, that's how I got mine.

aww... I was planning on shocking my grandma with this. :-P

I can make 10 of these with a budget of 2$

-99cent for 5 risistors at the shack

-disposable cameras are free if used

- I already have tools wire and batteries at home.

houdini0118 (author)unum2012-04-03

you can make even more if you get the resistors on ebay they are about 1$ for 50-100

unum (author)unum2011-04-25

Only able to make four B\C some were 4 or six pin and I broke some unslodering.

author
XOIIO (author)2011-08-09

My main concern is that the resistor would burn out.

author
unum (author)2011-04-22

ddont you mean the negative is connected to the open leg of the transistor(not capacitor).

author
unum (author)2011-04-21

Very good explanation!

Oh wow thats cool, No i didn't steal it, this was a project we learned in electronics class in college. There are several different things you can do with a camera circuit etc. This was one of them, but that instructable you showed me took it over board! Props to the Author. _Plasmana_
