Default DIY Battery zapper plans

I am look for plans for a battery zapper i can build at home. I found 2 sets of plans so far. 1 is from Magellan Technologies. I have attached a pic and the other was from a past thread. I can make out a lot of the figures on the one i have attached. Can any one help by sending me a set of drawings. I am looking for a commercial one that will be used to zap raw or virgin cells NOT to revive old cells.

Thanks a lot

The schematic you refered to will not work. I would guess it was intentionally drawn with errors to prevent people copying it, hence the disclaimer on the web site. I can see how it is intended to work though, if the errors are corrected.

I highly suggest you avoid trying to create a zapper unless you are very familiar with electrical wiring and circuitry. A incorrectly connected bank of capacitors of 40,000uf charged to 90v could be a DEADLY mistake.. No joke.

We can build you a zapper but it will not be cheap..

Default Thanks For your input

I work with a guy that knows all about electronics and i have got him looking over the plans. I am getting him to make the more basic one first. I myself know nothing about electronics. I am hoping the basic one is enough to make up some tired cells. Then i will lok at something to zap new cells from GP and match them myself. But that is much further down the track. Thanks for your offer to build me one. I know they can be big $$$$'s. Thats why i am researching it now. See there is now one here in Aust that matched cells.

That completely depends on what your looking for features you're interested in (Reversal protection, a unit capable zapping more then one cell at a time, capacitance of the unit, etc) If you are anyone else is seriously interested, send me an email at [email protected]
