I only used the full sized ones. i took the thing apart found the transformer and it had a red wire. the red wire is the HOT wire. i eventually wired it to 3 metal flat bars on my window and used it as a burglar alarm. it seems the thing puts out 50,000v at 23 ma. it bites REAL GOOD and prevents entry real good too. it wont kill unless the victim is standing in water or has a heart condition. don't try this at home it might kill.
