This project comes with several warning labels, and I’ll issue my own: the project link does contain videos of insects being electrocuted (with sparks and all – if that kind of thing makes you wheezy you have been warned).
Currently I’m working on a device to electrocute home insects like cockroaches, progress is small because they are smarter than I thought, but that’s a different story. For that project I had to find a source of sufficient high voltage and output power. Presented in previous post 5V/400V converter had insufficient voltage and power, another option, flyback transformer was too dangerous to be used here.
