Become Very Unpopular Very Fast With This DIY EMP Generator


When a conductor moves through a magnetic field it produces an electrical current.

This useful technology is how generators work at your local power plant.

Likewise, when a moving magnetic field passes a conductor, it creates current.

This phenomenon is called Electro-Magnetic Pulse, or EMP for short.

It sounds technical; it seems complicated.

But at first, it doesn’t really sound all that scary.

It sounds like something you’d hear a boring physics professor talk about.

Not a serious national security concern.

But don’t be fooled, it’s real and it is scary.

Because what happens if the magnetic field produced is much stronger when it passes through a wire?

Perhaps a pulse large enough to damage the wire.

A pulse so intense that it could fry the microscopic wiring in small circuitry.

Given a strong enough magnetic field, microelectronics are destroyed by an electrical burst.

By destroyed, I mean entirely burned out.

The destruction of electrical components in this manner is called an EMP attack.

Step 1: Schematic

I made a easy to follow schematic of the device.

basicly it`s just a coil thats connected to the capacitor whit a switch on the positive wire.

I used a DPDT switch to arm and fire it. If I turn the switch to the right than it charges the capacitor, in the middle it´s off and to the left than the voltage goes to the coil.


Components Required

  • Old bug zapper – 1
  • Old Adapter Case – 1
  • Switch -1
  • Hookup wire – 50cm.
  • Double Sided Tape

EMP Jammer Circuit

1. Take out the circuit out of the mosquito zapper.

2. Make a coil of 3-4 turns of hookup wire.

3. Solder one wire of coil to the anyone terminal of the capacitor at the output.

4. Glue another wire of coil near the another terminal of the capacitor at a distance of 2 mm or less than it.This is to create a spark gap.

5. Solder wire to circuit activating the switch to extend the switch out of the case.

6. Place the circuit in the case carefully and turn on the circuit and close the case.

7. Apply glue on the case then fix the switch and solder activating switch extending the wire to it.

8. Now apply a piece double sided tape to the case and fix the battery.

Here the circuit construction completed.

  • Working with electromagnetic pulses can be dangerous. There is a risk of shock, or in some rare cases, explosion, fire, or electronic damage. Clear electronic devices from your working area prior to creating the copper coil. Any electronic devices within a distance of several feet from the pulse could be damaged.

EMP Shield Conclusion

Now that we’ve discussed the key components of an EMP, it’s time to think about getting prepared.

Simple solutions like EMP Shield Bags or EMP home and vehicle shields can provide valuable advantages when dealing with the aftermath of an EMP. 

Being prepared is never a bad idea, especially when our modern technological livelihoods depend on it.

Shop Solar Kits is proud to offer a variety of EMP solutions, so you can choose exactly what you need for your lifestyle. 

Step 3: The Coile

Making the coil:

Make a small hole on the top of the toilet paper roll and stick the wire thru the hole like shown in the picture.

Take the copper wire around the roll 7 times.

Slide the copper wire off the toilet paper roll and tape the coile when you get it in its shape.

What is an EMP Shield? 

An EMP Shield is an effective method of ensuring your home, vehicle, and electronic equipment is safe from an EMP.  All Shop Solar Kits EMP shields have been strictly tested and satisfy all military testing standards.   


Now that you have all your devices protected when the terrorist EMP event strikes you’ll be ready.

Assuming you knew in advance an attack was coming and took these defense precautions.

So let’s say you did.

The “Event” Happens, And The Lights Go Out

You quickly retrieve your fully functional cell phone from your foil-lined trash can, a.k.a. Faraday Cage.

And presto, you have one of the very few functioning cell phones in the Northern Hemisphere. Congratulations!

  • Did your EMP protection plan pay off? Yes and no…
  • How many bars do you have? None?
  • Can you hear me now? No?
  • You pull out your protected laptop or IPad and boot up. Internet connection? Nope.

You’ve got a four-hour charge on the device, great.

Now, where are you going to plug in your charger (because you remembered to add a charger to your Faraday cage, right)?

Bottom line: The power is out, and it’s going to stay out for a very long time (maybe even years).

  • The utility distribution system has been fried.
  • Cell phone towers are fried.
  • The water company’s filtration and pumping systems are fried.

Food will quickly begin to spoil, and we just lost a war without firing a single bullet.
