How does a capacitor charger circuit work in a disposable camera ? Can I build it from scratch ?
I wanted to ask this question for a long time... In every coil gun instructable there seems to be a readily prepared circuit that changes DC into AC, steps up the voltage and then changes it back into DC to charge a bank of capacitors. My guess is that the circuit contains an inverter, transformer and rectifier... Am I right?
My question is, can I build that circuit from scratch ? If yes what materials do I need ?
