Maniac Builds A 50,000V Bug Zapper

When the mosquitos are coming for you morning, noon, and night, you might give electric fly swatter in the supermarket a second look. But what if it doesn’t turn out to be strong enough?



That’s what happened to YouTuber styropyro, who took things into his hands and gave a standard-issue electric swatter a serious upgrade. One might even say an unnecessary one.

He took a 2750V handheld device and turned it into 50,000V murder staff.




To give his swatter a sufficient upgrade, styropyro ultimately replaced almost all of the original parts all to take a device that can go on the offensive against wasp nests and yellow jackets. The end result takes the device from a humble 2750 volts, somewhat stronger than a photo flash, to a deadly 50,000 volts.




While absolutely not safe for any social setting, the end result here shows the results when you really, really hate wasps.
