    My battery zapper

    You commonly hear of people using welders to zap ni-cads into life. I wouldn't recomend such action. If the connections fuse together, you have an explosion on your hands.

    Purpose designed, or as shown here, thrown together zappers, have a common feature. The pulse, while being high energy, is of very short duration.


    Uses a 24 volt transformer running a voltage quadrupler. Charges several thousand microfarads to 125 volts, and causes a fair old crack when shorted.
