Author:Plasmana

My motto:
"Energy cannot be created nor destroyed!"


I have a brain condition called Asperger syndrome, so I may be a bit strange to you... And I tend to take things a bit too literally.

I love anything that can light up the skies and ending with an loud band, lighting, fireworks, and EXPLOSIVES! As long as no harm has been done, therefore
I absolutely hate wars, what is the point?

I was born and raised in New Orleans, USA, then my family finally decided to move to England after Hurricane Katrina gave us a push to do so. After we
moved, I developed great interest in electronics, then igh voltage electronics. I have archived many projects I wanted to do, but never succeeded at
constructing the ultimate project, the Tesla Coil...

But I am not that easily discouraged, I will continue working on until I succeed. There is a saying that my Gran always say, "The first you failed, try and try
again until you succeed!"

Now I go to College and study Electrics (not surprising!) to get my qualification, because all of this dang ultra strict Health and Safety laws!

Intro: Build a World's Smallest Electronic Shocker! version 2.5


It is good to know if the tiny shocker is on or not, by adding a wonderful invention called the "LED", so you don't risk get bitten by the shocker again!

Disclaimer: This shocker can be dangerous if used improperly, it gives out about 400 to 450 volts, so I am NOT responsible if you or anybody are injured or killed by the
shocker, the responsibility is yours...

Improved instructable!
I have been asked by comments and email how to attach a LED to a shocker to indicate it is on. So I then decide to make another instructable how to do that.

And , I have copied and pasted everything from my original shocker instructable onto this instructable and greatly improved the text on every step, also added more steps
and replaced some pictures. I am hoping it would be less confusing to you and understand the project better so you can have an higher success in completing this
project. :-)

If you do find anything confusing or an error on this instructable, please let me know and I'll fix it.

Step 1: What type of disposable camera should I use?


The best disposable camera you can use for this project are the "Boots" or "Polaroid" types, because they have everything you need.
The "Kodak" type is a bit more difficult, you need to find the type that uses an LED indicator, NOT a neon bulb indicator, those types will not work. Also, the LED
type cameras uses SMD resistors, so you will need to find or buy one 220 ohm and one 100 ohm resistors.
All other types of cameras like "fuji" ect. will not work because they have an different and/or more complex circuitry.

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Image Notes
1. Yes! It has everything you need!
2. Yes if you have some extra resistors...
3. No... It has a different circuitry.
4. Hell no! What are you thinking?!? Too complex!! (And expensive)

Step 2: What else you will need from the junkbox and the toolbox...
Hardly anything is needed for this project but the tools, all of the important bits are found in the disposable camera...

Some bits wires


AA battery holder (or other types of battery holder)
Solder

And the tools...

Soldering iron (with a micro-tip if you have one.)


Hot glue gun.
Desolder pump (it makes the job much easier, but you could probably get away with out one).
Flat-head screwdriver.
Wire strippers.
Wire cutters.
Pliers.
Vice (to hold the shocker in place while soldering)

Also, if you don't know how to solder or having trouble, this guide can teach you how to solder and other cool little bits that are good to know.

Image Notes
1. ...And a crappy radio/TV if you need it to keep you up.

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Image Notes
1. This type of solder it CRAP! You can't buy leaded solder in the UK. :-(

Step 3: Slaughter the camera!


Now this is going to be a fairly dangerous part, open up the camera and get the circuit out safely without getting shocked by the capacitor...

First, pry open the camera's case apart with a flat-head screwdriver or just use your hands if you like, but you are more likely to get shocked by the capacitor.
After you taken the camera's case off, discharge the capacitor with a insulated screw driver, and you may get a big loud spark, and after that, the capacitor is
discharged... (Use a screwdriver you don't like because a charged capacitor will leave a fairly large scar on the metal part of the screwdriver!)

Also, to avoid getting shocked by the capacitor, wear plastic or thick gloves.

Great! You had done the dangerous step on this instructable! Some people say this is the fun part because you get a nice big and loud spark!

Image Notes Image Notes


1. This shall be my victim... 1. Put the bare part of the screwdriver here to discharge the capacitor...

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Image Notes Image Notes
1. Camera's circuit removed from the camera's case. 1. Camera's circuit removed from the camera's case.

Step 4: Gut the camers's components


Okay, after you had took apart the camera and discharge the capacitor...
Desolder all of the wanted components off the camera's circuit (I desolder all of mine off of the camera board).

The components we will need from this camera are...

Ferrite transformer with five pins


22nF film capacitor
Transistor (NPN type)
Diode
Red LED
220 ohm resistor - Color code: Red/Red/Brown
100 ohm resistor - Color code: Brown/Black/Brown

As you might have know, the ferrite transformers has different tape colors, it does not matter what color they are, they are all the same. I don't know why they have
different colors...

The 330v 80uF capacitor can be fun to use, you can make a capacitor bank with a bunch of 'em and makes some big bad ass sparks or use it to make a powerful coilgun
on this instructable! Coilgun Handgun

You can do some really interesting light effects with the xenon tube if you put it near the plasma globe...

Also, be very careful when desoldering (and soldering) the transistor, they are quite heat sensitive because they very small. So try desolder it quickly otherwise the
transistor will burn out without showing any signs of being dead. Using the dead transistor on the shocker will give you some very low output voltage results like 0.41v or
something like that. This makes some people think this instructable is a scam, it is not, it is because they burnt out the transistor without knowing it...

To reduce the risk of a burnt out transistor, clip an alligator/crocodile clip onto the leads of the transistor (or the case if there is no room to put the clip on the leads). The
clip will act like an heatsink, this should give you some more time to desolder the transistor.

Image Notes Image Notes


1. Desolder whats needed, or everything... 1. Everything is desoldered...

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Step 5: The difficult bit...
Okay, this is the difficult part of the project, making the shocker itself...

Because we want to make this shocker small, it is a good idea to use a magnifying glass so you can see what you are doing and avoid make any solder bridges.

I also made a schematic and a design to show to show you how the shocker is made.

Start with the five pin ferrite transformer.

It is important that the transformer has 5 pins, if the transformer has 4 or 6 pins, it will not work for this project.

Image Notes
1. Pin 3
2. Pin 2
3. Pin 1
4. Pin 4
5. Pin 5

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Step 6: Solder on the transistor
Solder the transistor's base lead to the pin 4 of the transformer and solder the transistor's collector lead to the pin 1 of the transformer.

The transistor's emitter lead is the ground.

Image Notes
1. Emitter
2. Collector
3. Base

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Step 7: Solder on the 200 ohm resistor.
Solder one lead of the 220 ohm resistor to the pin 2 of the transformer and solder the resistor's other lead to the pin 3 of the transformer.

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Step 8: Solder on the diode
Solder the cathode lead of the diode to the pin 5 of the transformer.

Image Notes
1. Cathode
2. Anode

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Step 9: Solder on the film capacitor
Solder one lead of the film capacitor to the anode of the diode and solder the other lead of the capacitor to the pin 2 of the transformer.

If the capacitor's leads are too short (like mine) to reach pin 2 of the transformer and the anode of the diode, just solder some some wires on the leads of the capacitor to
make it longer.

Also, the film capacitor has no polarity (like the resistors), so you can connect it any way round.

Image Notes
1. Make sure the solder bridges don't form there otherwise the transistor will burn
out!

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Step 10: Solder on the 100 ohm resistor
Solder one lead of the 100 ohm resistor to pin 3 of the transformer.

The other lead will be connect the LED.

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Step 11: Solder on the LED
Solder the anode lead of the LED to 100 ohm resistor's lead.

Then solder the cathode lead of the LED to the transistor's emitter lead.

Image Notes
1. Cathode
2. Anode

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Step 12: Wires...
Solder the ground wire (black) from the battery to the emitter lead of the transistor and the cathode of the LED.

Solder the positive wire (red) from the battery to the pin 2 of the transformer.

And solder the high voltage output wire (blue) to the cathode of the diode and the capacitor.

Image Notes Image Notes


1. To the ground of the battery. (I replace the brown wire with a black wire after I 1. High voltage out. (-400 to -450v)
took a picture of this.)
2. To the positive of the battery.

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Step 13: Bend everything down...
Then, gently push all the components onto the side of the transformer and use hot glue if needed.

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Step 14: Construction on shocker completed and being tested..
Okay, now you built your shocker and it is time to test it...

You should get between -400 to -450 volts out of the shocker. My multimeter is reading -438 volts from my shocker.

If yours does not work, calm down, don't get so angry and blow off your head about hours of work for nothing.

First, check your shocker closely, are there any solder bridges? If so, remove them and replace the transistor.
If it still does not work, you probably burnt out the transistor from putting the soldering iron on its leads for to long, replace the transistor and don't keep the
soldering iron on its leads for to long again. If it still does not work...
Then the ferrite transformer's internal wiring might be damaged if you went rough with it trying to get it out of the camera board. Build another shocker, because
you cannot repair a tiny transformer (unless you have the proper equipment to do so!)

And if it STILL does not work, well I guess you can you can go very angry, and smash up the shocker with a hammer and get over it. Or try make another one...

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
Step 15: Two ways to attach the shocker to the battery holder...
Maybe more...

You can connect the shocker in a crude and simple way by using lots of wires... However, it would be quite difficult to use with all those dangling wires.

Or you can spend a little more time soldering and gluing the shocker and switch onto the battery holder to make the shocker more portable and easy to use.

Image Notes
1. High voltage "ground", (it is connected to the positive terminal of the battery).
2. Negative high voltage out.

Step 16: Have fun electrocuting people and don't get caught by the police!
Okay, now that you had built a shocker with a useful LED indicator, what is stopping you from going outside and electrocute your friends (and perhaps strangers)? Also,
watch out for police who is looking for trouble!! (That wouldn't be good!)

To use the shocker, the victim must touch the live -400v wire and the +1.5v wire to get a unpleasant shock...

The pain of a 400v shock is the equivalent of getting a really nasty static shock from a car. But the shocker gives a continuous shock...
Also, if you want the shocker to give more painful shocks to the victim, you just simply increase the input voltage!

So, if you give it:

1.5v input = 450v output.


3v input = 900v output.
4.5v input = 1200v output.
9v input = 2700v output. (OUCH!)

Beware the higher voltage you give to the shocker, the sooner it will burn out. If you give the shocker 9 volts, it WILL not survive longer than a few seconds, or it may
immediately blow up... It is the best if you feed your shocker only 1.5 volt, it may hurts less, but it won't burn out.

There is one funny idea that Kiteman thunk up...

What you can do is wire up the shocker to a battery with a switch and make the 400v wire and the 1.5v wire long and then box it up in a small plastic case (except the
long wires) to prevent shocking your self...

Then put the shocker in your pocket and have the long wires running down your jacket or long sleeve and put a insulator like a bandage on your finger tip to insulate you
(so you don't shock your self). Then put the bare ends of the wires on top of the bandage and tape it down.

And now you are for some fun! Go into the crowded school corridor and touch people with your electrified finger tip, you might not want to touch the girls as they have a
bad habit of screaming their head off if they get an unexpecting surprise, but go ahead and touch them if you want...
Or maybe go into the dinner queue and shock people as they slap the mashed potato on his/her tray...

So, what other funny and things can you think up for this small shocker?

Will the big black capacitor work. also why is it " very dangerous" because i got shocked by it and all i got was a buzz sensation (though i am mainly
desensitized to low power shocks).

hyudryu says: Mar 17, 2010. 3:28 PM REPLY


If electricity happens to go through your heart, 0.015A, it can kill you

Plasmana says: Mar 20, 2010. 4:49 PM REPLY


Exactly, touching the capacitor's leads with one finger will hurt. Bad. However, touching the leads in another way which will allow electricity flow
through your heart is highly lethal.

bigstiffy says: May 12, 2010. 9:00 PM REPLY


Funny you should mention that, a friend of mine had made a little shocker from a camera flash circuit, and because I knew that a person could
complete the circuit (albeit painfully), I told my friend to touch the positive lead while i touch the negative lead, and then we would touch our hands
together. I guess you could say we experienced a "shocking" reaction.

hyudryu says: May 12, 2010. 10:08 PM REPLY


Well if you touched the - lead, you will feel a LOT less of a shock because the + lead is where the electricity starts. going through your friend,
it loses a lot of power already so once it gets to you, its weakened... LMAO

draghi says: May 13, 2010. 1:26 AM REPLY


Just so you know electricity flows from - to +

hyudryu says: Jun 17, 2010. 1:01 PM REPLY


Not really 0_o Wuts wrong with you. - is ground its 0 volts and + is high its > 0 volts

maxwelljets says: Mar 10, 2011. 3:25 PM REPLY


Actually, electricity does flow from - to + if you want to get technical, but there really is no difference. You could either say that it is
electrons moving from - to +, or lack of electrons moving from + to -. Unless you are working with the specifics of how a diode or
transistor works, it actually doesn't matter.

PS. By the way, if often bugs me when people refer to the "ground" on a circuit as zero volts, because you can have a huge
http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-the-worlds-smallest-shocker-wLED/
difference from negative to ground. The terminals of a nine volt battery are actually +4.5 and -4.5, not +9 and -0, as many people
believe.

Jimmy Proton says: Jun 24, 2010. 10:27 AM REPLY


ive always heard i goes from - to + also but i hear more of the opposite now which one to believe?

hyudryu says: Jun 27, 2010. 5:35 PM REPLY


Actually, I tested it once where i measured the polarity and i touched it from one hand to another (dont ask why) And i felt more
of a numbing sensation on the + side and the - wire only had a little jolt. And from the high resistance on my skin, i can say that
the voltage decreases once it travels more. And since it weakened a lot on the - side, i think that + goes to -. There dont argue
about it anymore. Try it for yourself but use a almost out of juice AA battery so it only feels like a tingle.

Jimmy Proton says: Jun 27, 2010. 5:52 PM REPLY


why no just use diodes lol

hyudryu says: Jun 27, 2010. 6:11 PM REPLY


Lol that would work too but w/e i tried it with a used battery so it didnt hurt and the current is too small to damage my
heart because theres no capacitor -__-

Jimmy Proton says: Jun 27, 2010. 8:33 PM REPLY


on a diode does the electricity flow like this ---> ->| -----> or like this <---- ->| <------ (->| is the diode)

draghi says: Jun 25, 2010. 12:52 AM REPLY


OK Gnd is not - Because this is how i remember it: - is like subtracting from a Battery's power. + is like adding to a battery's
power. Gnd is is any grounded object like a water pipe eg. therefore - is out + is in gnd is get rid of.

draghi says: Mar 22, 2010. 4:33 PM REPLY


thanks!

hyudryu says: Mar 22, 2010. 6:51 PM REPLY


The easiest way is to desolder the capacitor, solder 2 wires in place of it, connect that out, put the circuit back in, close the camera. There Its
safe and it HURTS LIKE HELL. I fried an ant... I was bored so ya

rocketlauncher says: Jun 17, 2010. 9:24 AM REPLY


I've killed a 1.5" long cockroach that way!

draghi says: Mar 25, 2010. 12:47 AM REPLY


Did the same but i squashed the ant and it brought it back to life! Also it doesn't hurt me i just get a buzzing sensation that is not 100%
comfortable. Also if you short circuit it with another wire pretty sparks fly!

If the voltage is what you say it is, then can you make small electrical arcs with it?
If the power is oscillating, then can it drive a transformer?

The_Guardians says: Feb 15, 2011. 4:27 PM REPLY


I wrecked the Transformer when i desoldered it and I dont think that I can desolder it without ruining it ... is there anywhere that i can just buy one? ive looked
at radioshack

junits15 says: Mar 6, 2010. 8:12 AM REPLY


They are a little harder to find, because polaroid's bissnuiss has been a little slow. They do make them, and in answer to your other question I believe
that plasmana says in his other worlds smallest shocker instructable what the voltage outputs are.

the symbol, is actualy the greek letter lamedh, I just googled "greek alphabet" and copied the leter from wikipedia.

Also, your saying it wrong, it should be said like this:


"The right man at the wrong place can make alll the diffff-errr-ence in the world"

Schober is wrong. GMan always refers to Dr. Freeman as Mr. Freeman. It's actually "Wake up, Missster Freeman. Wake up aand
smellll the ashes."

Im going to put conductive pads on this and tell my friend its a "lie detector"...
and then shock him.

can this shocker really hurt or kill or something?

Plasmana says: Jun 7, 2010. 1:00 AM REPLY


No, it does not kill, it hurts a little.

circuitmania says: Dec 27, 2010. 2:52 PM REPLY


I learned that the hard way...

Never tried it, but I'd imagine it'd be like a shockey pen.

May be useful if anyone, like me wants to make a PCB:

RAYED says: Dec 12, 2010. 1:55 AM REPLY


whats the model of the transformer

dlcoates1 says: Dec 8, 2010. 1:22 AM REPLY


would it be possible to send the blueprints somewhere to get a pcb made for this? if so and where? btw is there a way to make this on a breadboard
(protoboard) or to even make this with a 6 pin transformer? because everywhere around here i cant get the free camera shells anymore. and i have like 20 6
pin cameras

One thing be careful with the Polaroid one if it has a flash on off switch because if you flip it on you'll hear a high pitch hum while it's charging and if it fills up
and you discharge it without a ground sparks shall fly and if you touch it you'll get a painful 1st or 2ed degree burn... BTW the the photoflash capacitor is
semi-massive

not true, i didnt get 1st or second degree burn, it just make me jump when i touch it at first, i was like 8 and wanted to know how stuff works so i take it
apart (FYI I still do that stuff all the time and i am now 19, i really love electronics go figure) and then i did it again and then tricked my bro into touching it.
we are fine. then i charged the capacitor again (the flash one) ripped it off the board without discharging it, and threw it into are pool. man what a scream
my stepdad let out XD

"the the photoflash capacitor is semi-massive"

I don't know what you mean about the capacitor is semi-massive, can you explain further please? :)
