Is there a way of using a standard penlight (AA, 1.5v) battery and generating about 12-15 volts to a wire? I know that I will need to add something between the battery and the wire to step-up the voltage but I can't think of what. Any help given will be appreciated. This is for a serious project I have in mind and not a prank. I wish I could give more details but I am still in the development stage.
Many thanks for the reply. Basically what I want to do is charge a wire so that when touched it will cause the person a small electric shock, similar to a stun gun or cattle prod but with a dracticlly reduced charge, almost like a static shock some people get when they touch the metal of a car.This is by no means to be used to inflict pain but mearly a reminder that they should not have touched the wire.The most I can use is either 2 x 1.5v batteries or at most 1 x 9v battery. I need this to be as small as possible.I hope this helps. If you need any further details is will get back.Thanks.
