Micro High Voltage

I'm going to attempt to make a super micro tesla coil that is 100% contained (unless it runs off of like 12 volts dc, then I'll use a wallwart). Of course, one of the i biggest problem is the power supply. So this is what I'm asking, what's the best way of ramping up the voltage? A tiny toroid transformer? An inductor that gets pulsed? Voltage Multiplier? Something with static electricity? Some type of Inverter? Using Greinacher Cascades? A marx generator hybrid? Other stuff I havn't heard of?

bumping this backup because I got interested again do you think a Royer oscillator is a good way to go?

here's a little thing that I finished today sorry if some of the pictures are blurry I just found out that my webcam has a focus!

Is this recent ible any use?

If you note in the comments I asked for the current output, so that is an option, but I don't think it can deliver enough current
Ahh, I see want you want to do...
Like I said, If you give it more battery voltage input, it will give more voltage and more current output...
So you could give it 9v power input and it might give a few Kv's output, but remove the diode and the capacitor as they might burn out from high voltage...
you need at least 3kv for most tesla coils i beileve. 6 is good, 12 is exellent and so on.

how about a mini flourescent light inverter!
guyfrom7up (author)  guyfrom7up9 years ago
operates at 5KV They say output it 5mA, but I calculated a lot less
output is 5kv? i thought only 800v. id check it first. then it would be okay. youd need about 15ma though.

well, this website is talking about the same inverter, and they say 5KV at 50khz

but now that I think about it it does sound unreasonable
