I wonder if you were to use two or three separate coils along the length and wire them in parallel to the Bridge Rectifier, would that help build charge more quickly? I haven't tried it, so I am just wondering your thoughts.
could I use the capacitor in a disposable camera?
Probably but you want more Farads for longer term discharge. Most disposable camera capacitors are a special aluminum electrolytic capacitor, usually rated around 300V to 450V, capacitance in the 120uF to 330uF range. I would choose a supercapacitor like:3.0v 20F http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Taiyo-Yuden/PA...
3.0v 50F http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Taiyo-Yuden/PA...
Or whatever voltage you needed.
thanks. because i have cameras in larger supply, i will just use a camera capacitor
