Altoids have always protected us from bad breath, why not muggers? if somebody could fit a disposable camera taser or something in an altoids tin, that would be AWESOME!

Hey, I'm making a 'Glove' Taser using a disposable camera and I wanted to know a few things which most people who read this will laugh at. Firstly, I wanted to put a stronger battery into it and wanted to know what the best battery to use was, keeping in mind that I wanted it to be hidden so I can't use C or D batteries or anything like that. And secondly whether by soldering more wire strands to my contact points (the hurty bits) whether it would carry a greater charge? ie, if 5 strands of copper wire carries 'X' charge then maybe 15 strands would carry '3X' charge. Any help here would be a huge bonus and when I make my Instructable on my Glove Taser I'll give credit to anyone who tried to help me XD

How do i make a taser from scratch and not from a disposable camera? cause i cannot find any disposable cameras
Question by wesley14 9 years ago | last reply 9 years ago
Hi iv been wondering... what happens if you put a taser attached to a metal rod and is constantly charging? would it turn into a lightning blade/sword/rod that when you wack/slash someone, they get the pain from the hit and the shock? anyone know if its possible to make one of these?

Question by arkirymbai 9 years ago | last reply 9 years ago
I recently built a taser out of a disposable camera and I do not know how much voltage and amprage it pumps out so I won't kill anyone. I like to play it safe. I used all of the disposable camera and the capacitor is a 4 farad capacitor. In case you haven't guess yet I am a noob at the home electronics game. So... Thank you.
Question by pyrofire7976 8 years ago | last reply 2 years ago
I think people would easily say the difference is that a taser shoot projectiles and shock them. I dont think that is it. I heard the difference is that a stun gun is a "pain complaince weapon" and that a taser is a "immobilizing weapon". Stun gun hurts and tasers make you immobilized. How does a taser achieve that? It shoots 2 projectiles and the body acts like a condutor trying to pass that current. If you use a stun gun the 2 electrodes are too close so the current need to pass only a small amount of your body. That is what I think, can anyone confirm that? I think that is why it only hurts. What if I took a stun gun and made the electodes to be very far apart? Like take two wire and make a person hold in each hand a wire, then I would turn the stun gun on. Would that work like a taser? So the current passes the whole body and not only a tiny spot. I hope it makes sense to someone. Thank you

I am building a new tazer design, based off of my diy taser circuit, powered by a 9 volt. I shocked myself in the right temple ( don't ask ) and I am wondering if it could harm me. How much voltage an I getting? Btw ever since I shocked myself my right eyelid "flutters" rappidly every now and then, a few times a day.

Question by ouwelou 9 years ago | last reply 9 years ago
So, there are a lot of people posting articles on how to make tasers, most of these only spark if they touch something conductive. I would like to ask, how can you make the current jump between the two wires without touching something conductive? thanks

I've been looking around ibles for a good taser instructable, but they all come up with ones which use cameras. Are there any which don't?
Question by ~Aeronous~ 8 years ago | last reply 8 years ago
The capacitors inside disposable cameras pack a pretty big wallop and it's recommended that you act very carefully around them. If you don't you'll get zapped. And if you set it up so that someone else could get zapped you might even get arrested like this 14-year-old kid from Connecticut. linkvia boingboing

Question by ductapedemon12 10 years ago | last reply 10 years ago
If i were to take the igniter out of a butane grill lighter and hook it up with wires i would have to put a capacitor in order for it to HOLD a charge correct? Cause i beleive without any extras it will just make a shock when pressed?
Question by trf 9 years ago | last reply 9 years ago
My smallish dog steals my watch and other things from counters. A very light shock would be sufficient; I would use a 9 volt battery by itself but I want the pulsing action of an r/c/transformer circuit. All the shockers I've found here are too harsh. Any suggestions, especially how to vary the amount of shock?
Question by chrisk33 9 years ago | last reply 9 years ago
Does this work and not kill anything? I have 2 coils, other has 15 loops of wire and the other 10 000, if i use them to make a transformer and i attach a 9 volt battery to it it outputs about 6000 volts? Now, if i take the wires and shock myself with them will i get a shock without any serious damage? I dont have access to any serious capacitors for the time that i need so would this work?
Question by aksuduud 6 years ago | last reply 6 years ago
Hi, I would like to submit an instructable to the Epilog and Pocket sized electronics challenges. It is a spark/electric arc generator, which has many uses such as using it as a spark gap radio transmitter, igniting flammable gasses or liquids (camping stoves), or using the high voltage to charge capacitors. The circuit is based on that of a DIY stun gun, so the project could be used as a stun gun. In the rules it says the project can't be 'potentially dangerous'. So would this project be disqualified from the challenges for being too dangerous? I would of course warn people not to use it as a stun gun in the instructable. Thanks in advance :) Detective Inspector Me

Hello!I'm Alex and i like high voltage!Now to the matter at hand...You know those disposable camera circuits?I noticed that they have 2 coils, one for charging the capacitor and one for triggering the flash.i was wondering if someone could help me build/design a circuit that uses the trigger coil.Electronic Goldmine has a Mini 4KV trigger coil that claims to be of high voltage.Does anyone know how i can wire it to produce HV in pulses?Thanks!-Alex

Theres lots of instructables about how to use capacitors for it, but i have a high powered stun gun, with more volts than any camera circuit capacitor bank. 1,800,000 V or 1800 KV. i know there has to be a way to do this. considering a camera capacitor only has about 330 V.

Question by mikmkt93 8 years ago | last reply 8 years ago
I found an old dog shock collar on my street with a broken collar(not reciever), can i make a remote to make it shock, or turn it into a taser? Basically i want something that i can have fun with, to shock my friends, or my other idea (since i have a mildly aggressive pit bull, would be to make a remote, so when he is outdoors and goes after strangers i can send the small shock it outputs to help train him to not act that way. Please help me figure this out, as i am a geek but know little about electronics when it comes to building them. Thanks. oh also the collar is a " Petsafe PIF-275" collar if this helps at all in figuring out how to do this.

I just got a new car but the keys didn't come with a key ring. Now, since I am a metal fan I was looking for a keyring that was totally bruttle and cool. Currerntly I can't think of any cool ideas so can anyone help me out? One idea I had was to conceal a taser, that I will be custom making, and possibly a usb flash drive inside. Only issue is that it needs to be light enough as to not damage the key barrel and stearing column. Thanks in advance.
Question by one_fake_user 8 years ago | last reply 8 years ago
I know that stunguns and tasers can produce hundreds of thousands of volts. I was wondering what kind of circuits I would use to achieve similar or, preferably, higher voltages (like, in the millions) using components like ignition coils, magnet wire, 555 timers and components bought at Radioshack. I want to produce as much voltage as I can with a tabletop setup without having to build or use big capacitors, a tesla coil, or electrostatic generator. The purpose would be to generate lots of faint corona discharge.

Question by Dakpots 9 years ago | last reply 8 years ago
Hello, in plasmanas instructable, how to make the worlds smallest electronic shocker, he does not mention anywhere the part numbers of the components, and only asumes that all camera components are the same, which i have now discoverd are not. anyways, recently i have built this tiny shocker 5 times, 2 times i used no solder as i was puzzled as to why it wouldnt work, all 5 times it didnt work. now, recently i discoverd that the 5 pin transformer used has 200-300 ohms of resistance between pin 4 and 5, and i have discoverd, that every single transformer i have pulled from a camera, does not, wheras infact it has 0.4 ohms. now unless his results are innacurate, this tells me that his transformers are totally different to all of the ones i have. and i have quite alot, even ones from polaroid cameras, supposedly the only ones that actually work. now, what i want to know, so i can get them on ebay, what are the part numbers or serial numbers of the transistor and the 5 pin transformer it seems impossible to harvest the correct ones from anything other than a single type of polaroid camera sold apparently only in america as luck would have it. otherwise, if no-one knows what the part numbers are, are there any other types that would work?
