Does any one know how to make an Ne-2 joule thief ??
Recently I’ve been researching on how high voltage joule thief works. The popular high voltage joule thief videos out there are known as Jeanna’s light if I’m not mistaken. I also built my own little LED joule thief circuit, it appear success after all with a 2n3904. But I want to take the concept a little bit further, so I decided to attempt on the high voltage joule thief circuit. It appear no luck, I have 120 turns for high voltage on my ferrite core (1 turn = 1 volt). I know it’s the same principle as the LED joule thief but with the LED removed. I have two 1kohm resistors and I connected them in parallel to get 500ohm resistance. I connected them all like the LED joule thief, but it seems like I did something wrong. So I ask for further instruction.
Parts that I use:
40 or 30 gauge magnet wire (high voltage windings)
20 gauge magnet wire
2n3904 transistor (Don’t know if that’s the right transistor for this circuit, but it’s for experimental purposes only.)
2x 1Kohm resistors in parallel = 500 Ohm resistance
AA rechargeable battery.
The thick magnet wire are 7 turns.
