Introduction: Hack to Self Defence-Homemade Taser

Sometimes it can happen if we face a thief or unknown illegal person that wants to take all our precious things from us, our home or our shop. In that case they should be taught a lesson, how they dare to mess with us. So in this instructable i am presenting a simple home made taser just from old Disposable camera-A Life HACK for self defence .It will take just 5 minutes to built. So lets get started....

Step 1: Ingredients

  1. Disposable Camera -

You can get a free*, used disposable camera anywhere film is developed

2. Soldering Iron-

3. Copper wire-

4. Electrical tape

Step 2: Disassembly of Camera

Tear the camera apart. for this you may need different tools, even a cutter but dont destroy the circuit. All you need is the circuit.

Step 3: Charge It Up-Install Battery

Stick the battery from the camera in the back of the circuit (Get the polarity right). You might want to use electrical tape to secure it because it tends to fall out. Then hold the button for a few seconds.

You should hear a high-pitched whine. When the whine stops your capacitor is charged. Stay clear of all the metal parts when the battery is in, or when it is charged. You might even want to electrical tape over all but the capacitor contacts.

Step 4: Save Your Life.

Test your new taser one something/someone by touching it/them with both capacitor contacts. Most capacitors are charged from 300 to 360 volts with very low amps (didn't even register on my multimeter) so you dont need to worry about hurting anyone too bad (I've been shocked quite a few times).

If you want, you can even solder wires accros the capacitor and extend the wire. Take out the two therminals out of case such that both wires are at proper prsition. The voltage stays the same and the shock is constant (as opposed to the quick discharge of the capacitor), but it doesn't hurt quite as bad.
Now if anybody tried to harm you,Just charge the circuit and hit the capacitor terminals (or extended wire) to body, I am sure they will forget like they live on planet Earth.
