This little fire starter can throw quite a spark! it is a hacked camera that uses the high voltage stored in the capacitor that is intended for the flash function as an imitation ignition method for starting fires! I have been stuck trying to build a fire and I know I'm not the only one. Because of past issues and the near future summer camping plans I decided to make this little guy. Watch the video for a demo and we will get started!
DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. there is high voltage stored inside of these capacitors that can easily pose a risk. I am not responsible for any damage or injuires.
