Stun gun IC 555?

Not open for further replies.

the 555 is setup in astable mode to make it "pulse" every specified time period (very fast). This must happen because the transformer only magnifies CHANGES of voltage due to magnetic field fluctuations, so you cannot just throw constant voltage to the transformer, you need to throw it lots of short pulses.

good luck
