Step 1: What All You Will Need.

You will need the following:

A piezoelectric transducer

A 1000 ohms rectifier diode

An electric socket

An led

Acrylic

A transient voltage diode 1500W

Two Capacitors

Step 2: Soldering Together

Solder all the components together on a perfboard and add the plug socket

Step 3: Adding the Cover

Find a suitable cover for the circuit board to be kept in. I got mine from one of those plug and play electric speakers.

    It doesn't look like you soldered the components in place... You would have to make your own PCB for that. It's obvious that you didn't solder at all

    It looks to me like the answer to shivamgautam's question would be "Yes"

    I think I've read online that these are fake, They don't repel mosquitoes at all

    Sorry, But this is FAKE (Tell me why this isn't fake...)

    "A 1000 ohms rectifier diode" ? ? ?

    (Title) "Repelent" should be Repellent.

    :)

    1K ohms, Isn't it a resistor?

    You didn't correct the title...
