that should be fine, it won't be able to give as many charges since yours is only 3780mAh but it should still work
sorry, I'm not the great Scott :D but I may be able to help you. First off, normally on the boost converter where he changes it to 5v there is a pin usually where you can adjust the current you desire, however even if yours does not have this, you can always attach a potentiometer to the output of the boost converter, and using the potentiometer the current will change based on what you set it toHope it help! -Nate
yes, however in series would not let it be able to supply as much current, and since we are only going for 5v there isn't much insentive I would say ( unless you want to skip having a boost dc converter ) but as long as you don't get do much voltage everything should be fine!
year, the power output is higher by quite a bit, so it is better as a defense device, however if you would like to use a 9v ( because it's a compact battery ) and have it powered at 6v, you could use 2 resistors and center tap between them to get 6 v ( see picture ) and you could hide those resistors up in the crevice of the boost converter of you like. Let me know if you need anything else! :D-KS

sure! Only I'm not quite sure what you mean by that, do you mean why it works the way it does?
thank you :D
I had a safety rant in the Intro, but I updated it, good thinking !
I did put a disclaimer, it is in the intro
it depends greatly on the size of the flyback you use, generally bigger = higher voltage, also if you wind your own primary the amount of turns come in to play as wel. But with this , about 20kv to 40kv I would guess
Well, it greatly depends on the flyback transformer you use, bigger ones tend to give a high voltage, I personally have gotten anywhere from 20kv to 40kv while using it

I redid some things, first off I cut the ends of Brad nails and used them as the HV outputs, second I replaced the momentary switch I had, with a much smaller one, this will make your taser look and feel much nicer!
