Hey ,

I have used 2 nine volt batteries. 1 LED. about 1200 turns in L2 and 15 turns in primary coil(lower turns doesn't work properly). I am not sure of the value of the resistor i am using and no capacitor But the results are not satisfactory!

It is too weak as you can see in the images! What can i do? Whats your suggestions?? There is a detailed description here:https://in.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20...

Well done! Much like how I've taught the theory.
