Picture of safety and taser out of a disposable camera
what you can't do when making a taser out of a disposable camera I would hope that you read this before making the taser so you don't have the same burn marks I do because the voltage on this is over 600 volts.
(FOR EDUCATION PURPOSES ONLY) *wink wink nudge nudge*

Step 1: Dischargeing

Picture of dischargeing
open up the sides by sticking your nail or a knife under the little side clips then open the camera and there should be a circuit board.!!!(WARNING)Before you touch anything make sure you use a metal object to discharge the capacitor (Capacitor):the big black tube on the back of the circuit board and touch the two cords that come from the capacitor.

ok i am in ibiza and i bought 2 bb guns and a knife how would i get them past customs in manchester airport because i dont wanna be jailed for smuggling any tips??? (oh nd dont be a smart arse and sy dont buy them)
manchester nh ?
buy a gun lock from gander mtn usualy that will get a gun thru the knife put it in a sheeth then in a suit case or something then it should get thru
dont buy them

i just kept my knife wraped it tee shirts but the bb gun i dont know......

cut ONE of the capacitors leads, then try the Taser! You get a CONTINUOUS VOLTAGE 3X THE ORIGINAL VALUE!

Normal voltage: 300 volts DC
After cutting out the cap: near 1000 Volts DC

And you get a continuous voltage, meaning as long as you can hold the button, you can shock someone. No more waiting to charge up. They only downfall, is now there is no spark, but it still hurts, ALOT!

Try it, seriously guys!

i love these things
Do yourself a favor-get hit with a real taser then try to call this a 'taser'. It's like calling a cap pistol a firearm because they both make an explosive noise.
benny101 (author)  jtobako7 years ago
well at least this is really really strong and doesnt kill you.
It's not really strong and it could get you killed. A taser is a weapon. You expect it to work. If you get into trouble, and expect this to work AS A TASER, it won't-it will just piss off whoever got hit without slowing them down. You were in trouble before you resorted to this and now the trouble just got worse. A taser has certain safeguards (like insurance if someone gets hurt). This has none of them. Any damage-such as burns, scars or nerve damage-is 100 percent YOUR FAULT.
pacbury jtobako7 years ago
you are right, these hurt, but ive been shocked before and its nowhere near enough to kill you.
*sigh* when is there ever going to be a stop to all the tazer instructables theres about ten of them.
ATG pacbury6 years ago
a wise man once said....'volts harm,amps kill'.....this has vry low amps....get shocked all u want....u aint gonna die....
jtobako ATG6 years ago
If you expect this to work like a tazer, and use it as such in an emergency, it isn't going to work. Now your antagonist is even MORE pissed at you and not as likely to stop... Or do you think that this zapper is going to make the bully smile and become your friend?
ATG jtobako6 years ago
nah mate....this is for educational purposes only r'ber?....lol.....just somethin to mess arnd with frnds....nt exactly equivalent to the ones cops use on ppl lol...
jtobako ATG6 years ago
Then don't call it a taser, which specifically IS what cops use.
ATG jtobako6 years ago
ah...didnt wanna go ther...bt neways...wiki can be really helpful sometimes....'A Taser is an electroshock weapon that uses electrical current to disrupt voluntary control of muscles.'.......so....well since the jolt from this thng above can cause involuntary muscle stimulation....it is a taser in my opinion....also....if u really wanna play a cop...increase the input voltage...and u'll get the taser as per ur definition.....
jtobako ATG6 years ago
So rubbing my feet on the carpet and shocking my cat makes me a taser!!!! Sweet!!!!
ATG jtobako6 years ago
'electroshock' doesnt mean 'static electricity' mate....wiki is really helpful if u hv doubts abt something....hope u get urs cleared.....
jtobako ATG6 years ago
So the multi-million volt mechanical static electricity generators used in physics experiments don't count as 'electroshock'....or the vandergraph generators which pull 6" sparks from static electricity...or the wiemherst generators that can do the same... This DOES NOT have the current or voltage capability to be considered a weapon or a taser. I have zapped myself with them and the jolt is no worse than a big spark from a camp fire. Tell you what, you look up on You-Tube what happens when someone is hit by a taser and then you can try to argue that this causes voluntary muscle disruption. Don't bother answering unless you can provide the link ; )
ATG jtobako6 years ago
hmm.....whatever happened to the 'be nice' policy.....neways....if u wanna call van de graf generator as tazer, be my guest lol......try nt replyin to this...cos i sure aint gonna continue this conversation.....
skok pacbury7 years ago
I've never seen a TASER inst before; only "shocking devices". . .
why did you come and read this just to insult the person who made it?
I was hoping for real information. No such luck.
temp7 years ago
Not trying to be mean but, This is a stungun, not a taser. A taser shoots two metal darts with long thin wires attached to the gun. When the darts hit their target, oftenly a human, The circuit is complete and the person gets schocked. A stun gun you hold in your hand and use to scock someone.
zeph4x temp6 years ago
no a stun gun shoots two metal darts that is why its called a stun GUN!
nope. sorry, but a taser shoots, a stun gun just shocks. Wikipedia can be very useful.
'wiki can be vry useful'.....lol...nicely put...:P
i wanna scock someone!
Yea you better read his comments cause when I was prying it apart for a poor-mans flashbang/ surprise gun it left a pretty small burn mark but painful one.
macca4life7 years ago
thanks for the info now im off to shock ramdom ppl in the public
walk in an extremely busy place holding it out
lol ill throw it at them
I have been hit with a cheap 100,000 volt taser and shocked my self with one of these. There is a pretty big difference.
benny101 (author)  Thelonelysandwitch7 years ago
im not sure exacctly but i think these are 55,000 volts
I didn't test it

(Circuit diagram)

Each different manufacturer uses a slightly different circuit design. However you should be able to identify the same components: resistors, capacitors, transistors, etc in each circuit. You should also be able to identify the three stages of each circuit.

1. The first stage of the circuit operates when the charging button is pressed. It boosts the voltage of the 1.5 volt battery to a high voltage. A capacitor and inductor (coil) form an oscillator. The oscillator is fed into a transistor amplifier to boost the current, part of the boosted current is fed back into the oscillator, then the current passes into a transformer where the voltage is increased to a high, AC, voltage.

2. A diode followed by the capacitor of stage 2 then turns the AC into a high DC voltage, HV, over 300 volts. A neon lamp glows when the voltage HV exceeds 80 volts. The large capacitor discharges through the xenon flash tube when the flash is triggered by stage 3.

3. A switch is closed by the shutter which puts a voltage step, HV, across a transformer. The transformer boosts this voltage pulse to over ten thousand volts, VHV. A wire brings this VHV voltage to a place close to the flash tube. The very high voltage ionizes the gas in the flash tube, making it a conductor. The high voltage from the capacitor then drives a current through the flash tube heating the gas and causing it to give off a flash of light.

cool taser
