Today I want to show you simple way to make electric ignition firecrackers for airsoft games / cinematic effects / jokes / experiments and other.
We need piccolo firecrackers (or other firecrackers filled flash powder), some wires and Kanthal A1 32AWG / 0.20 mm (you can buy it in vapeshops or aliexpress http://ali.pub/n86jv ) or NiCr 80 with smaller diameter.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Сarefully cut the firecracker and find layer with flash powder. It comprises aluminum and has a metallic color.
Note the position of the layer.
Prick a firecracker at flash powder layer with a needle from the syringe.
Insert piece of Kanthal in the end of the needle.
Pull out the needle. Kanthal was stayed in firecracker.
Connect 2 wires to the Kanthal and wrap 2 layers of tape.
Step 6: Done!
Well, all done. Time to try it!
In my video you can see how it work. For the ignition, I used 1 li-ion cell with a voltage of 4.2 volts. In theory, you can use 1 AA alkaline battery.
You can see demonstration in my video.
