    Hi,
    I'm starting to get into this electronics stuff, and I was trying to make something.
    The goal is to create a button that causes a sudden discharge.
    I have some reading materials, but have only had time to skim it.
    From what I gather I need something with a capacitor.

    Problem is, I have no idea how to start on this, or what I'll need.
    If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be grateful.

    Daan

    Discharge of what?
    electricity or fluid?
    define "sudden"? A time value should be included.

    Why don't you describe why you think you need this "discharge" and what its intention is.
    As with any question.. The more information you provide the greater chance of getting a suitable answer.

    How will you know if the discharge is effective/complete? How will you charge the gizmo initially?

    Two or more capacitors will give a bigger sudden discharge.For bigger current try put them in parallel.
