does anyone know how? Answered

does ANYONE know how to make a taser/stun gun WITHOUT the use of a disposable camera??????? even if you have to buy resistors and stuff for it


I just made one out of one of those electric bug swatters. I got it new at a thrift store for $3.00. I took the racket part off and opened up the circuit. Basically I ran wires from the cap. (already there) out to 2 nails and used epoxy to hold the nails ... Filled in the rest with hot glue. Put the battery back in and BAM...it wont knock you out or anything but it will stop an attack.

  It's definitely possible, but be warned:  commercial tasers and stun guns have complex circuitry in them (microprocessors, etc.) to make sure that they only incapacitate and do not kill.  Even so, commercial tasers have killed people.  Unless you are willing to build the exact equivalent of a commercial taser or stun gun, I do not think that it's very safe to attempt to build something like this.  Especially just a voltage multiplier on steroids.  Depending on where it happens, even a small shock could injure or kill someone

To make a commerical stungun you will need a 12vdc to 1k+ ac inverter or CFCL transformer. Then you take the output AC voltage of 1k or higher through a small diode/cap voltage multiplier and pulse circuit stepping it up to 3k or higher.

Next you will need to make your own HV pulse transformer these are basicly mini oudin coil's   the secondary is made up of a multilayer winding the lenght of a ferrite rod layered 8 times with insolation (wax paper or nomex paper) between etch layer, the primary is higher gauge wire with about 3-6 winds, Finish by boiling in wax to seal insolation.

T2 is the HV pulse coil, T1 is your inverter

If you could somehow make a device capable of turning a few volts ( < 12)  into a lot of volts ( > 200). it would not be that hard.

you could try to use a voltage multiplier or a transformer if you have an ac current to feed it. Or you could look for some way to turn the dc from a battery into ac.

you could also rebuild the circuit from a disposable camera yourself. but why would you want to do that, if you can have it readily available and most likely for free from the camera itself?

Search teh interwebs for the circuts for IONISERS. These will get you the killer voltages you seek. Obviously you'll need circuits for a battery powered ioniser or else a very long extension lead.
