If so, how many chargers could I put together?
YES you can. I would worry about the chargers damaging each other, Unless there is a diode in series with each charger. "how many chargers could I put together?" How strong are you ? :-) The only limit on how many chargers is $$ and available power. How long does it take to charge ? What voltage ? Why is this important to you ? A

So, I would wire the chargers in parallel right? That would still get 330 volts from the chargers but a higher amperage ( I think).So then, where would I put the diode? And how good would the diode have to be?
You need a 400V 1A diode 1N4004 or 1N4005 or 1N4006. A
Wow, I just happened to have 2 1n4004`s on my desk. They are the only diodes I have.
yes, ive done it before, i had 5 in parallel and about 30 caps. its dangerous, i accidentally shorted it blew up in my face, my ears were ringing for 3 hours. be careful, im guessing your making a coil gun.
What happened to the shorting item, was it a wire ?You may have a bit of UV burn.A
piece of solder fell on it.
Solder is cool when vaporized ! Also makes you clean your area. Like playing with NIB magnets of over the ¾" size. Keep Living... A
