  • The best shock gag since the pen!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    It looks and works just like a normal cheap lighter.
    The electrical shock can be turned off to "demonstrate" that it is just a normal lighter.
    The shock is not large enough to hurt, but it is very annoying and induces an allmost irresistable reflex to let go of the button.

    Cons:

    The bottom conductor is rather small, a full metal casing insulated around the button would be better.

    The "metal" parts are just copper-chromed plastic meaning that the metal finish will rub off with time.

    The shock may be too weak for some.

    OtherThoughts:

    I managed to get 4 people shocked in few hours with this, and noone suspected a thing.

    Bottomline:

    This is the most convincing shock gag since the shoching ballpoint pen, noone who hasn't seen this thing before will suspect it as being a shock gag.
