Hi, my first post here in this great community! :D
Id like to build such a device on my own and actually it seems quite simple: a few capacitor and electrodes connected to them..
But which capacitors for 5v source (like arduino) and what current?
And how to adjust the output? by changing frequency or current/voltage?

In general this should work like a real EMS but i havent found much information on how they work in the www.
Perhaps you could help me out?  :)

Thanks in advance,


I would seriously reconsider what you're trying to do here; while what your wanting to do could most certainly be "home brewed" - you could also end up with a potentially lethal device. I would also advise anyone else here who may want to give advice on how to build such a circuit to pause and think upon what it could mean, should fl0k3r accidentally harm himself in such a fashion, and his family decides to pursue legal action...
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.


Hm, i expected that it is probably too dangerous, its a pity, because good ems's are very expensive.
But - for other purposes - im still interested, what capacitor to use and how.
Anyone knows these electrical fly paddles/rackets?
Electro shockers in general, how much current and voltage?


Wow, thanks, didnt know that these things are sold at this name too.. seems like i didnt search that good, sorry :smiley-roll-sweat:
But i think ill buy one of these for such a low price to see, whats going on inside.
Thank you for taking the time picking up these links  :)
