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!

Battery Power in a Taser

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 much voltage and amprage does a disposable camera pump out?

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.

What is the difference of a taser to a stun gun?

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

Student arrested for making disposable camera Taser

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

Epilog and Pocket sized electronics challenges

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

How can I make crazy-high voltages without a bulky setup?

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.

what are the part numbers of the components used to make the worlds smallest shocker?

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?
