About: I like to create things, handmade weapon, arduino projects, science and some crazy staff! Also I like to capturing videos about my projects and I have YouTube channel - MadGyver!

This instructable is about how to make electric shocker with high-voltage booster. I made it inside PVC tube like classic DIY style. This handmade shocker can't make serious harm, but it hurts =)
