--------WARNING---------
The Slayer exciter creates an electromagnetic field that may negatively affect electronic equipment in the immediate area; including pacemakers. Exercise caution and common sense when operating a Slayer Exciter.

Step 1: Parts list

Items Needed:
-   At least a 6" long tube that's 1" in diameter, it must be hollow and non-conductive! I used a
     piece of PVC pipe. - ~$5
-   Box for Slayer exciter. - Free
-   Approximately 3' of 14 - 26 AWG wire. - ~$1
-   Approximately 100' of 30 AWG enamel wire. - ~$5
-   Some sort of round sphere to use as a top load. - ~$1
-   One 47,000 (47k) ohm resistor. - $1
-   Two UF4007 diodes. - $1
-   One TIP31C transistor. - $1
-   Screw terminals (Optional). - $1
-   Transistor heat sink (Recommended if exceeding 18 volts) - $3

<p>Hey ,</p><p>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!</p><p>It is too weak as you can see in the images! What can i do? Whats your suggestions?? There is a detailed description here:<a href="https://in.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20140716111027AAul4qz" rel="nofollow">https://in.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20...</a></p>
try to Change the connection of the primary windings.
<p>Hey buddy, do you realise that's a 2 year old comment? Time runs fast, my life has changed a lot.</p><p>We had done that in a competition and we lost, the final product was working great. We optimised it to the point it could light a CFL at about a distance of 15 cms with nearly full intensity. We had reduced the number of turns in the primary wire, the one the above picture has too many turns. And also used 2 9 volt cells. Just a word of caution for anyone reading this and planning to make one, you may try going for a higher voltage battery, but the heat from the transistor becomes excessive and it burns, maybe try using two transistors in parallel.</p><p>I am not so awesome any more, drudging through days, hope I got those days back... </p><p>Thanks for the reply anyway man.</p>
<p>Is this not exactly (and I mean <em>exactly</em> the same instructable as ChipFix's, but with different pictures? Like, everything else is the EXACT same, down to the formatting.</p>
<p>I do not know English well and then I had to copy its text, because google translator is not good.</p>
<p>my ckt is not working what i do</p>
<p>Could you explain how a Slayer Exciter works in depth? Thank you :) ASAP</p>

Can i get plasma globe by using a light bulb instead of top load?
Well done! Much like how I've taught the theory.
