Introduction: ZVS Flyback Transformer Video

About: Me on YouTube youtube.com/Alex1M6
My ZVS flyback transformer driver operating on 24V. I am using two 12v sealed lead acid battery's in series for 24V for the power source.

What happens if you put salt on the electrodes?

    Hey, Jozef C here!

    Great vid, just got my ZVS driver working yesterday and I was so happy.
    The ZVS is a great FBT driver, in't it?

    Thanks, haha yes the ZVS driver is an excellent driver. I went from 2n3055 and 555 drivers to the ZVS and never realised just how much abuse these flyback transformers can take.

    Have you got any videos of your ZVS running?


    I will make a video once I have my new Sony HDR-XR160. I can't bear the terrible audio quality with my current Fujifilm S1600.

    I hope that with 36v at 7.2Ah I will get nice arcs like this : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdEvimYTMBw or arcs like your for example lol!


    Yes they will be fine for powering a ZVS driver, I used x2 12V 7ah lead acid battery's in series for 24V on mine and they work fine. I am hoping to get another one soon so I can run it at 36V.

    Just be sure to keep them fully charged when not in use!
